Eluveitie Announces Major Lineup Split

Swiss folk metal act Eluveitie announced the departure of drummer Merlin Sutter, vocalist Anna Murphy and guitarist Ivo Henzi from the band in what is described by Murphy as an "impossible situation."

The band will play out the next few shows with Sutter, Murphy and Henzi and then other performances the band has committed to, incuding Wacken this August, with replacement members before retiring for a while to solidify a new lineup.

The official band statement reads: "With a heavy heart we have to announce that Eluveitie will go through another change soon. We have decided to part ways with our longtime drummer Merlin Sutter. In the consequence of this, Merlin's close personal friends Anna Murphy and Ivo Henzi decided to leave Eluveitie as well.

"We all developed a lot over the last ten years – not only as a band, but also as individuals. And we partly developed in different directions; different goals, wishes and ideas emerged. Over the last years we all had to deal with interpersonal challenges within the band. Instead of pulling together, our days have rather been shaped by wearing friction and constant clash of interests. And thus we felt that we have become something we shouldn't have; that we've diverged from what Eluveitie was always meant to be – a band, a family, a passionate and deep-rooted group of musicians, where heart's blood can flow freely! Eluveitie was always meant to be about 'rock'n'roll,' passion and also about 'carrying the torch' of the Celtic spirit. Yet over the years we have partly diverged from our roots, which is not good.

"Each and every single one of us is definitely a passionate musician! But in this group constellation, we seemed to rather cumber, than to inspire each other. The band has suffered from this for a longer time now.

"So we ended up in this painful situation where the mentioned facts have made it impossible to us to continue like this and we came to the point eventually, where we believe, it's best to go separate ways. More...

70,000 Tons Of Metal, Day Two: "The Marathon Day"

I woke around 7am – excited for what was not only the first full day of the cruise…but what I hoped would be the most concerts I’ve ever attended in any single day of my life. It was all mapped out…but the question is – would the pool deck be ready?

I headed up to Deck 12 to assess the situation…and once I made it to the yellow police tape, I realized – here we go again. In 2015, the high winds at sea forced the crew to abandon building the pool deck stage (the largest at sea) until the morning. It took them until 6pm to get it ready for Soulfly’s set, forcing all other shows to be reworked indoors. This year, the plan going in seemed to be to rework the shows where available – likely at the end of the evening within the venues inside. I recalled my joke to Siegfried Sammer of Visions of Atlantis – “I’ll see you at 10am…IF – and that’s a big IF…the pool deck is ready.” Well, it appears the jinx was on because Visions of Atlantis would be bumped to Saturday. The guard told me that 11:30am was the target time for completion, which is still way better than 2015. More...

Diamond Head Tops Off 70,000 Tons Of Metal 2016

The 2016 installment of 70,000 Tons of Metal will set sail tomorrow. Promoters UMC have declared the event a sell out and announced that the final act added to the bill is legendary UK act Diamond Head.

Metal Underground.com will be on board for the cruise and will provide coverage in the form of daily show reports, photo galleries and a four part video series featuring performance clips and other antics from each day.

70,000 Tons of Metal 2016 will sails from February 4th-8th from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and return to Jamaica with a stop at Falmouth.

The festival will board a new vessel, the second in as many years: The Independence of the Seas (via Royal Caribbean). The ship will accommodate four stages: The Alhambra Theater is a five-story concert hall in which they spare no expense to remove part of the (very comfortable) seating so you have a real Mosh Pit on the High Seas; The more intimate Egyptian themed Pyramid Lounge offers the local club atmosphere; The third indoor stage is in Studio B, the ice skating rink featuring a maritime version of the Arena experience and last but not least their jewel: The Pool Deck stage - The World’s Biggest Open Air Stage Structure to ever sail the Open Seas, surrounded by multiple bars and pools, plenty of room to sunbathe on several decks and even hot tubs incorporated into the Pool Deck stage to soak in while you watch the shows!

The All-Star Jam band, which returned this past January will also be back, led by Annihilator's Jeff Waters and members from the various acts aboard performing cover tunes live.

In addition, the ship will broadcast the upcoming Super Bowl between the Carolina Panthers v. Denver Broncos live on Sunday, February 7, 2016.

Eluveitie Parts With Violin Player

It is with great regret that Eluveitie has to announce the departure of violin player Nicole Ansperger. The band enjoyed a wonderful year of adventures with Nicole, circling the globe and completing the first part of the "Origins" world tour together. Eluveitie comments:

“Unfortunately, it can be extremely difficult to manage personal obligations and take care of a family alongside a life of constant touring, and Nicole’s priorities are with her family - where they should be. We are parting amicably and would like to thank Nicole for the good times and her musical contribution. It’s been an honour to share stage and studio with such a talented musician!“

Nicole would like to add a few words herself: “Dear fans, as mentioned before, it can become pretty difficult to reconcile personal obligations and the touring life. A lot of things have changed within my family and my personal situation during the last twelve months; and now my familial situation makes it impossible to me to be on the road with my band constantly.

"After careful consideration and with a heavy and bleeding heart I made the decision to leave Eluveitie. I was a very hard step to me and I will miss Eluveitie - the music, the band, the crew and very much also YOU, the fans! I wanna thank you all - you‘ve been the best fans of the world to me! You rock, you‘ve been wonderful and I won‘t forget you!

"Also I‘d like to thank my mates in Eluveitie - thank you for the amazing and intense time we had together! Yo‘`ll always be in my remembrance! I wish you all the very best for your future ways and of course I wish you a awesome new fiddle player. :) This certainly doesn‘t mean an end to my musical career. Music will always be a very important part of my life and who knows - maybe we‘ll see each other again one day. Keep on rockin‘, guys & girls!" More...

Epica Announces European Tour With Eluveitie

Epica has announced a co-headlining tour of Europe with Switzerland's Eluveitie this fall. In support is modern metal masters Scar Symmetry.

Guitar player Isaac Delahaye says the following about the tour: "Oh boy, I'm super stoked for this! What better way to end our The Quantum Enigma world tour than to team up with a band who's – just like us – mixing 2 different genres into something special; a great metal band with a catchy folk topping. Yummie! Add some delicious riffing from our favourite Swedes, and you can expect a lot of coolio and 3 bands on top of their game. You wanna hear an orchestra? You wanna see a fiddler? You wanna steal tasty soloing ideas? Or do you just wanna have a great metal night in the pit? We've got it all."

Patrick Kistler Comments On Departing Eluveitie

Last week Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie announced the departure of Patrick (Päde) Kistler, and now he has checked in with the following statement about the parting of ways:

"So the latest news from the Eluveitie camp is spread for a couple of days now. In this time I got a huge amount of messages where i constantly get asked about the why and how. So instead of responding to each person seperately i would like to settle a statement myself about my leave from Eluveitie. Neither was it my desire nor my decision to leave the Band.

"After incredible 6 and a half years of a with lots of experiences on the road, personal issues increased within the past 12 months in my life as well as in the Eluveitie hood. I have been going through some personal difficulties and changes in my life that also affected the relationship to some band members and my ability to fulfill the expectations (no, no addiction problem and they are solved in the meantime). So this all got more exaggerated within the past stressful months of the album production and intensive touring. In the end the majority of the band decided to expel me from the Eluveitie hood by a democratic vote, we're still very Swiss.

"Of course this isn't easy at all to get along with and more so to accept that those people I spent almost more time together throughout the past years than with any other person in my life, wanted me to leave. I have been dedicated to this project Eluveitie not only with spending a big amount of my attention, more so about all that makes Eluveitie unique and outstanding: the storytelling of history. Therefore I take the right to adjust Eluveities current album 'Origins' epigraph: 'We need to know were we come from to know who we are.' In that sense I wish the project Eluveitie all the best for it's future and I hope that Chrigel can go on with his dream for a long time. Some others might have forgotten that a band is not a 'Blue-Chip' company with radical human resource politics, it's a band that lives from the individuals, vibes and the dedication each one provides in it's very own way to the greater whole.

Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie just issued the following announcement about parting ways with Päde Kistler:

"With a heavy heart we have to share with you the news that Päde is no longer a part of Eluveitie. After six years and four albums, he leaves big shoes to fill. While we have no further comment at this time, we would like to wish him all the best for his future endeavours.
