After three years of silence, Swiss Metal legends Eluveitie step out of the dark again, raising their voices to herald a new era of the band’s stunning career. Today, the band releases their new single ‘Aidus’, following the huge success of their last album Ategnatos but in the same time showing the band from a never-before-seen side.
Founding member Chrigel Glanzmann comments on the approach: “Definitely one of the harshest songs of Eluveitie ever. It’s the sheer consequence of our spiritual journey with “Ategnatos”:
We’re no longer a “Celtic Metal” band… a metal band singing about celtic history. We’re Celts playing metal music from all our hearts. We’re no more a “Pagan Metal” band. We are metal music playing pagans from all our hearts, gashing principles of our modern societies with our ancient message like a surgical blade. That’s probably the best way to describe our new single. Deal with it!”
The song comes with a new music video that you can check out here: https://youtu.be/7nFc-oS7dv0
