Swiss folk metallers Eluveitie have released their new album, “Ategnatos”, on April 5 via Nuclear Blast. The lyric video for their new single ‘The Slumber’ can be watched below.
Recordings for “Ategnatos” took at New Sound Studio with their engineer of choice Tommy Vetterli.
A work based on archaic archetypes and the ancient concept of renewal, “Ategnatos” unfolds an elemental force to be reckoned with. “These archetypes are still within us,” leader Christian “Chrigel” Glanzmann says. “People didn’t change that much during the last 3000 years — and men were always just men.” No wonder the album follows a decidedly darker, monumental tone that suits them very well.
