2012 marks the 10th anniversary of Swiss New Wave Of Folk Metal pioneers ELUVEITIE! To commemorate the occasion properly, the band has decided to re-record the Vên EP completely and to re-master their debut album, Spirit, in order to put these two sought-after collector’s items into one 2CD-bundle. This magnificent gift to the fans is entitled The Early Years and will be released via Nuclear Blast Records on August 17th (Europe) and September 25th (North America).
As a teaser, the band has uploaded a lyric video for the re-mastered version of the track “Your Gaulish War” from Spirit, which can be enjoyed here:
