ELUVEITIE: Give Away Brand New Song For X-Mas

Swiss folk metal horde ELUVEITIE just released a brand new song off the bands upcoming album, Helvetios, as a X-Mas present for their fans! Visit www.facebook.com/eluveitie to check out the track “Meet The Enemy”!

Commented mainman Chrigel Glanzmann: “We’re happy and proud to already present you ‘Meet The Enemy” – track 7 off our upcoming album Helvetios!

It tells you about the ‘encounter’ the Helvetians had with the roman legions in the year 58 BC – one of the crucial points in their history, for it was basically when the gaulish wars erupted.

So the song is pretty much filled with wrath and rage – upholding the furious spirit you might know from tracks such as “Kingdom Come Undone”, ‘Bloodstained Ground’ or ‘Lament’.

Furthermore the song’s substantial instrumentation (including fiddle, hurdy gurdy, whistles and uilleann pipes) is also enriched by one of the guest musicians, we had the honor to work with – Fredy Schnyder (from NUCLEUS TORN) who contributed some amazing parts on the hammered dulcimer.

Hope you enjoy!“

Check out mainman Chrigel explaining the concept behind Helvetios here:

Helvetios will be released on February 10 (Europe) and February 28 (North America) 2012 via Nuclear Blast.

ELUVEITIE will unleash its fourth studio album in the midst of the North American portion of the band’s Helvetios World Tour. ELUVEITIE will take the stage in the US and Canada this winter as direct support to the mighty CHILDREN OF BODOM on their 15th Anniversary tour.
