Swiss folk-metal pioneers, ELUVEITIE, have released a brand new song from their upcoming masterpiece Origins. “The Call Of The Mountains” is the second single off the album and the band has recorded it in all four of Switzerland’s beautiful national languages.Check out the multilingual track video (incl. all versions) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhTrT93gOzA
“This one’s long overdue,” states the band. “Another Origins song you say? Well, yes indeed. Finally, a song about our beautiful mountains? That, too. But also an idea we’ve considered for a number of years now: a song released not just in English and/or Gaulish, but in all four of Switzerland’s beautiful national languages! So we present to you: ‘The Call Of The Mountains’! A song about the long searched for destination at the end of the epic journey of the Celts, who were to become the Helvetians – a song about our mystical and unparalleled alps. Besides the English album version, you will find the full song in Swiss German, French, Italian and of course Romansh both on Nuclear Blast’s mail-order edition and on iTunes, where you will of course be able to get them separately, too. We can’t wait to hear how you like it!”
The single “The Call Of The Mountains” (English version) will be available in the digital format on July 25, 2014. The full song in Swiss German, French, Italian and Romansh will be on the beautiful Nuclear Blast mail-order edition of Origins and via iTunes.
Origins will be released on August 1st (EUR), August 4th (UK) and on August 5th (North America) via Nuclear Blast. Cover artwork was created by none other than the group’s mastermind himself, Chrigel Glanzmann. Origins was recorded once again with producerTommy Vetterli (KREATOR, CORONOR) at New Sound Studios in Switzerland.
