Swiss melodic-folk-death-metallers, ELUVEITIE, has just launched a brand new and completely redesigned website and has taken the occasion to announce the title and production status of their upcoming album Helvetios. Commented the band:
“We have made good use of the time between the shows of our Everything Remains World Tour and are therefore able to announce that as of today, September 1st, Merlin has begun drum tracking for our new album titled Helvetios at Newsound Studios in Pfäffikon, Switzerland. We are again working with Tommy Vetterli (CORONER, ex-KREATOR) who will record drums, guitars and vocals and will also be producing and mixing the record this time around. Most folk instruments and vocals will be recorded by Anna Murphy & Marco Jencarelli at the Soundfarm studios in Lucerne.
All that’s left to say for now is that we are extremely excited about the new material, and we cannot wait for the release in early 2012. Further updates will appear regularly on this site, both in news as well as in a studio blog in which the bandmembers themselves will keep you up to date.”
