Eluveitie re-sign to Nuclear Blast Records

Nuclear Blast Records is proud to anounce, that the Swiss folk metal stars Eluveitie have signed a new record deal with the German based label.

Over ten years ago, in November 2007, the unknown Swiss folk-metal newcomers Eluveitie signed their first contract with Nuclear Blast and became an internationally successful act, with the release of their label debut “Slania”.

Five more incredibly successful studio albums followed and now the band have signed a new deal with the label so that the formidable pairing can continue to produce even more greatness.

Mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann states:

Eluveitie to release “Slania - 10 Years” anniversary edition on November 16th 2018

In February 2008 the, then rather unknown, Swiss folk-metal newcomers Eluveitie published an album which would later be heralded as one of the most important reasons for the band's break-through: “Slania”.

What Eluveitie achieved with that album is not something you could call a phenomena. It's much more the product of hard, passionate work; the kind of work you put into something you love with all your heart.
