Folk metal band Eluveitie has announced that they’ll be releasing ‘Evocation II – Pantheon’. The album is set to come out on August 18 via Nuclear Blast. The album is the second part of their acoustic concept album ‘Evocation’.
Eluveitie formed in Winterthur, Zurich, Switzerland in 2002. It was originally a studio project by Chrigel Glanzmann, but its success led to the recruitment of a full band. The band’s musical styles incorporate characteristics of melodic death metal combined with the melodies of traditional Celtic music. They use traditional European instruments, including the hurdy-gurdy and bagpipes, amidst guitars and both clean and harsh vocals. Their lyrical content references the Celtic mythology, particularly the Celtic Gaul village. They’ve released six studio albums to date.
