Official press release:

Swiss pagan metal horde Eluveitie entered the studio 2 and half weeks ago in order to record their highly anticipated new album. The successor to the acoustic/folk masterpiece Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion is said to be a full scale metal album again, showcasing Eluveitie extraordinary folk metal mayhem! The album will be produced by Tommy Vetterli (mastermind of Coronor, ex-Kreator, and Voodoo Cult) at the renowned Newsound Studios. Afterwards, legendary sound guru Colin Richardson (Behemoth, Machine Head, Slipknot, As I Lay Dying, Trivium, Fear Factory, etc.) will work on the mix.

Commented vocalist/mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann: "Some of you might have heard some rumours about it already and it's true, we're heavily working on our new album! For two and a half weeks already we've been in the studio recording our next audible sword blow. Drums and most of the guitars are already nailed and so far we are really, really satisfied. I mean REALLY! We've decided to record our upcoming album in the famous Swiss Newsound Studios, owned and run by none lesser than Tommy Vetterli (note: pic attached)! So far it has been a hell of a pleasure to work with him on recording the album! It's great to benefit from his enormous experience both as producer/engineer and musician on one hand, but also to have a good time with him since he's a very likeable and down-to-earth guy on another. Judging by how the recorded tracks sound so far this album will definitely cleave your heads wide open!

"The album will of course be mixed by the British sound forge god Colin Richardson.

"That brings me to the next thing to mention. Yes, after an acoustic release we're thoroughly up for a massive metal album again! So Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion will become the well known calm before the storm so to speak. Some of the songs on this new album I began to write quite a long time ago, some others developed in a very short time during the last two months. All in all I think that this album will become our most dark and severe release so far. Brimming with mysticism and insanely fast celtic folk melody lines but at the same time with pure, juggernautish metal. Actually this album's probably more 'metal' than any other release we've done so far. So stay tuned!

"I wish all of you some great and pleasant autum weeks! We'll be back with more news in a while. For now I have to go 'back to work' and prepare some angry and nasty vocal recordings."
