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.

ELUVEITIE Announce New Violinist  Nicole Ansperger

ELUVEITIE Announce New Violinist Nicole Ansperger

After recently parting ways with violinist Meri Tadic, Swiss folk metal institution ELUVEITIE are pleased to officially welcome Nicole Ansperger into the fold!

“As hard as farewells can be, new beginnings can be very auspicious are as well,”  commented ELUVEITIE in a mutual statement. “We are thrilled to introduce to you Meri’s successor. We consider ourselves lucky to have found a true master of Celtic Folk fiddling! A full-blooded musician and violin player through and through, she has played countless shows over many years and also played as a session musician for many well-known acts (such as THE HOOTERS, for instance). During the last ten years she further made a name for herself through her engagement with the Irish folk rock bands PADDY GOES TO HOLYHEAD and ACROSS THE BORDER, but also the renowned medieval/classical metal act HAGGARD. Not only a virtuoso of the fiddle, she also plays the 7-stringed violin as well as the cello! So, ladies and gentlemen – please welcome to the ELUVEITIE camp: Nicole Ansperger!”

 

Added Ansperger:
“Dear ELUVEITIE fans, I am absolutely delighted to be ELUVEITIE’s new violin player. I love ELUVEITIE’s music and have been a fan myself for a long time. Is there anything better than getting to play for the band you love? I am looking forward to many sweat-inducing, incredible shows with you and the band. See you on stage!”

Review by Rhiannon Marley

Photography by Michelle Murphy


Whether you think of Sabaton as pioneers of modern power metal or a bunch of self-confessed ‘Village People in combats’, the fact is, they’re bloody good fun. Flying high with 2012′s Carolus Rex after a renowned post-recording line-up change, the belligerent Swedes are hitting the HMV Forum tonight in force – and from what I’ve heard, in FLAMES…

Swiss melodic folk death metallers Eluveitie have been bringing us their unique sound for 10 years.  Early in 2012 they released the truly epic album ‘Helvetios’, in which their distinctive style of metal fused with traditional instruments was taken to new heights.  As if this wasn’t enough for avid fans, to celebrate their anniversary, Eluveitie have just released a 2-CD Digipak entitled  ‘The Early Years’, consisting of  an entirely re-recorded version of their first EP ‘Vên’ plus a completely re-mastered version of their debut album ‘Spirit’.

We had a chat with vocalist and hurdy-gurdy player Anna Murphy about her unusual choice of instrument, singing in dead languages and their upcoming comprehensive nine date tour of the UK and Ireland supporting Sabaton.
