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.

Eluveitie Parts Ways With Päde Kistler

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.

"At the same time, we can announce that we have already found a very talented musician to step in and keep the show going: multi-instrumentalist Matteo Sisti, from our friends and colleagues at Krampus, has not hesitated to jump in and learn our full set in just a few days.

"A big THANK YOU goes out to Matteo and Krampus at this point - in the midst of the European leg of our Origins World Tour, their support is much appreciated. Matteo is joining us as a temporary session musician for the remainder of this tour. We can’t wait to rock the stages together for you!"

Submissions are now closed for our ticket giveaway to see The Black Dahlia Murder at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, this Monday, October 13th. But you can still submit your full name (matching your ID) and the headlining band in the email subject to podcast@metalunderground.com if you’d like to win a ticket to Attila on Friday, November 14th at the same venue.

We kick off this week’s MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast with some more unsigned talent: traditional/power metal act Sacred Ash of Westchester, New York. Formed in 2012, the band released an EP last year titled “Beneath Blackened Skies.”

Following that, co-hosts Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) and Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) kick around some ideas and reactions to some buzz-worthy metal topics of the week. Are Swiss folk metal octet Eluveitie corporate sellouts for accepting a sponsorship from automaker Honda, or are they completely sensible, given today’s difficulties in sustaining a metal music career? Who or what was truly responsible for the demise of the previous incarnation of Sweden’s The Haunted? Is founding guitarist Patrik Jensen’s explanation a fair one? And speaking of fair, who really pulled the plug on a recently cancelled Behemoth concert on a Polish university campus? Another grave injustice, or more drama queendom from bandleader Nergal?

Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 19

There's been no shortage of hot-button weekly metal news lately - well, very little shortage, anyway; sometimes we at the Metalunderground.com Official Podcast (listen here) are forced to make shit up - and perhaps the most hotly contested announcement is that of the big ol' Singer Change. Replace a bassist or keyboardist and no one bats an eye. Replace a guitarist or drummer and healthy debate ensues. Replace a singer and everyone loses their minds.

It happened in March when Alissa White-Gluz (ex-The Agonist) stepped into the shoes of veteran Arch Enemy frontwoman Angela Gossow, and now it's happened again on the Left Coast: Bay Area thrashers Exodus have relieved vocalist Rob Dukes of his duties after nine years and four albums of service, making way for the return of previous frontman Steve "Zetro" Souza. Reactions have been mixed and somewhat heated, and here to discuss just that is your fabulous co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure).

Next, Mike and dashing co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) tackle the fresh new single "Rusted Nail" from Swedish metal giants In Flames, of which they both are confirmed fans for life. However, reactions to this song are mixed as well, and the overall attitude toward the band's upcoming album "Siren Charms" is one of... shall we say, "cautious optimism."

Finally, Mike offers his initial reaction to the upcoming album "Origins" from Swiss folk metal heroes Eluveitie. He was blessed with an early promo for review, and concludes that this effort combines elements of the band's past and present and is likely to satisfy fans old and new alike.

Tune in here, enjoy, and offer us your feedback. You can subscribe via iTunes or RSS, and don't forget to throw in for a free ticket giveaway in Fort Lauderdale (if you're able and willing) for DevilDriver at Revolution Live next Wednesday, June 18th. Just email us at podcast@metalunderground.com with "DEVILDRIVER" in the subject heading, and provide your name matching your ID.
