‘Eluveitie’ Re-Recorded Version Of ‘Lament’ Song Available For Streaming


2012 marks 10-year anniversary the career of Swiss folk metallers Eluveitie. To mark the occasion, the band has decided to re-record its entire first EP, Vên, and remaster its debut album, Spirit, and release these two sought-after collector’s items as a two-CD bundle. This magnificent gift to the fans is entitled The Early Years and will be released on August 17 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The first audio sample from The Early Years to be made available is a re-recorded version of the track Lament from Vên. Check it out in the YouTube clip below.

The new version of Vên was recorded with producer Tommy Vetterli [Coroner/Kreator] at his Newsound Studio.

We are extremely excited about this release, and Chrigel comments:

” ‘The Early Years’ will give both old and new fans access to the very first steps in Eluveitie’s history. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years already! Speaking of that, to celebrate our 10 year anniversary (2002-2012) we wanted to offer you something special. Therefore we have decided to re-record the tracks of our first EP ’Vên’! We had a lot of fun putting those songs on tape again – some of which we have been playing live to this day and that have developed together with us over all these years. With ‘Divico’ we have finally completed a song that has been in the works forever. We are happy to be able to present this little “classic” to you now – good things take time to ripen!”
