Initially formed back in 2002 as a mere studio project by main man and mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann, His vision was to create a blend of Gothenburg styled melodic death metal with ancient folk melodies and themes that would soon become the "New Wave Of Folk Metal", Now, more than 12 years on, ELUVEITIE have established themselves as the most successful Swiss metal act to date.
‘Origins’ deals with the Celtic mythology, 'or to be more precise, with aetiological tales from Gaul', commented vocalist and front man Chrigel Glanzmann, Glanzmann also created the album artwork for this new offering and goes on to explain: "The album cover of ‘Origins’ is designed after the hammer/club-shaped 'halo' of Sucellos, as seen on a statue that was found in a shrine of a gallo-roman household in today's France, It was created under the scientific supervision of experts from the University of Zürich".
"On "Origins", the visual impact of Eluveitie's unique folk metal is taken further than ever before, Cinematic sound effects, beautiful choirs and of course these powerful modern metal riffs completed by some complex yet catchy folk lines, Powerful, inspired and well-balanced, this album is an experience on its own!"
