In February 2008, the then-little-known Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie published an album which would later be heralded as one of the most important reasons for the group’s breakthrough: “Slania”.
What Eluveitie achieved with that album is not something you could call a phenomena. It’s much more the product of hard, passionate work; the kind of work you put into something you love with all your heart.
Even though the band went quickly from being an underground act to being internationally successful, they had to fight their way to the top, shedding blood, sweat and tears. Euphoric reactions, sold-out shows and a newfound respect the world over were the well-earned rewards for their hard work.
