New ‘Eluveitie’ Song Available For Streaming ‘Meet The Enemy’


Meet The Enemy is a brand new track off Swiss folk metallers Eluveitie‘s upcoming album ‘Helvetios’.  Their new album will be released on February 10, 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records. Their new song Meet The Enemy can be streamed below.

Chrigel Glanzmann comments:

“We’re happy and proud to already present you “Meet The Enemy” – track 7 off our upcoming album “Helvetios”! It tells you about the ‘encounter’ the Helvetians had with the roman legions in the year 58 BC – one of the crucial points in their history, for it was basically when the gaulish wars erupted.  So the song is pretty much filled with wrath and rage – upholding the furious spirit you might know from tracks such as “Kingdom Come Undone”, “Bloodstained Ground” or “Lament”.Furthermore the song’s substantial instrumentation [including fiddle, hurdy gurdy, whistles and uilleann pipes] is also enriched by one of the guest musicians, we had the honour to work with – Fredy Schnyder [from Nucleus Torn] who contributed some amazing parts on the hammered dulcimer. 

Hope you enjoy!

The CD was recorded at New Sound Studio in Pfäffikon, a municipality in the canton of Zurich in Switzerland, with producer Tommy Vetterli (a.k.a. Tommy T. BaronCoroner/ex-Kreator guitarist). According to the band, Vetterli“record[ed] drums, guitars and vocals and also produc[ed] and mix[ed] the record. Most folk instruments and also vocals [were] recorded by Anna Murphy and Marco Jencarelli at the Soundfarm studios in Lucerne.”
