Latest Eluveitie News
Below is our complete Eluveitie news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Folk metal act Eluveitie has issued the following announcement about changing the venue for the band's upcoming live show in Quebec:
"Venue change in Quebec! Our show on February 4th in Quebec will now be at the Imperial de Quebec! You can get tickets at this location."
You can also find a list of upcoming Eluveitie tour dates via the band's MySpace profile, which can be found here.
Vocalist Luna of Holy Grail has issued the following statement about the band's upcoming tour with Eluveitie and 3 Inches of Blood:
"We’re really excited to tour with Eluveitie and 3 Inches Of Blood, our last tours with both these bands were a complete blast and we really hit it off well! It’s like touring with family. Can’t wait to hit the road! This package is perfect, we have a great balance of melodic heavy metal bands with brutal riffs and wild live energy across the board! I’m also looking forward to check out System Divide!"
Eluveitie also added: "We ourselves can add that we had a great time with the guys of Holy Grail on our last run together with Amon Amarth and we are looking forward to this one! On another note we have received questions about the lack of VIP-Tickets for this tour, as they seem to be very popular these days. The answer to this is simple: We checked out offerings of other tours, we have considered it, and we have decided that you can get most of it on any Eluveitie show already but we do not think that we should be charging you money for it. Fan contact has always been (and will always be) a big part of what we are and as always we will be hanging out after the show to chat, take pictures, get drunk (occasionally..), and sign whatever the hell you would like to have signed.
"In fact free posters and autograph cards will be available at the merch booth this time (while stocks last of course). And since we’re traveling in a big ass tour bus it’s really not that hard to find us if you feel the urge to say hi during the day! So while we will probably offer 200$-plus tickets just like anybody else if we ever become a stadium band all you need to do for now is to keep your eyes open, and don't be shy."
Eluveitie has issued the following announcement about seeking video submissions of fans performing with the song "Thousandfold:"
"You might have heard about our upcoming tour through the US & Canada, and you might also know that we are about to take a whole new show across the pond, bringing you a full 90-minute headline show with a killer support-package and some of the lowest ticket prices around.
"Now as if this wasn’t enough yet this will also be your chance to get on stage with Eluveitie: After constantly receiving requests for sheet music and seeing dozens of Youtube videos of fan cover versions we figured it is time to give you the chance to prove yourself on stage. All you need to do is record a video of yourself performing whatever you do best to our Song Thousandfold, upload it on www.youtube.com and send us the link to email@example.com. Don’t forget to include your name, age, and of course where you’re from / which show you are planning to attend.
"As with anything that sounds like fun first there’s some restrictions as to what’s possible, so what will give you the best chances are singing, playing the flute/whistles or guitar, and of course the classic and always welcome air guitar playing. But we are definitely also open to your talent in tap dancing or anything else that comes to mind. Before you ask though: Due to the nature of our show we unfortunately are not able to let you take over the drumkit. More...

"We in the ‘Buckle are stoked to announce two very special guest appearances on 'Crime Always Pays…' That’s right, we sailed our ship right over a bunch of really high mountains and hijacked two of Switzerland’s finest folk metal musicians, the wonderful Anna Murphy and Meri Tadic from Eluveitie!
"Anna can be heard elegantly cranking her hurdy-gurdy’s rosin wheel on the song ‘Slowly Wept the Sea’, and Meri fiddles up a fury on the tune ‘Of Hooks And Hornswogglers’. We’ve been friends with the lasses for many a moon and it was a blast finally getting to work with them. However, don’t let this fool ya, ye twat waffles… this is still the most aggressive, in yar face Swashbuckle record to date, so ya best be checkin’ it out, or else the Swiss wenches get it!"
Finnish folk metallers Korpiklaani have issued the following statement regarding their upcoming co-headlining European tour with Eluveitie:
"After all this touring far abroad, we decided that it might be time for a new European tour, after all, we don't want to neglect all our great European fans and friends. So, we are happy to announce that we will team-up with our friends from Eluveitie for a co-headlining tour in October. This European Tour starts off at October 8th, and is the last chapter of our Karkelo World Tour, which started in April 2009 in the U.S.A. We will play 23 shows altogether, and we will visit Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Croatia, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, France, Spain and England.
"Before the start of this European tour we will play at four festivals, like Summer Breeze in Germany, and the legendary Dynamo Open Air Holland in Eindhoven, Holland. In-between all festivals we managed to prepare, and even partly record, a new album at the Petrax studio in Hollola. Our upcoming album is scheduled for release in February 2011. Even though this new album will be released in winter, it definitely has a strong ‘midsummer-mood’. We are happy to announce, that one new song features a guest appearance from one of the most respected Finnish singers, and famous songwriter, who has been strongly present in the Finnish music culture for over three decades.
"Lately we have many troubles with Myspace, even uploading the flyer does not work, and adding shows gives many error messages. As soon as Myspace works okay again (which we still hope and wait for) we will put everything also online."

New Jersey folk metal band WINDFAERER -- M. Gonçalves [Vocals, Guitars, Bass], JP Andrade [Percussion] and Valèek [Violin] -- has recently posted two new tracks to their official MySpace page. "These Walls (Frozen In Time)" and "This Beautiful Death," which features bagpipe work by Sevan Kirder, formerly of Eluveitie, come off the trio's debut full-length, "Tribus." Check out the tracks on their MySpace page. "Tribus" was recorded and mixed at Frightbox Recording (Clifton, NJ) by Bobby Torres and follows the band's two-song demo "Glorybound," which was released last year.
Main songwriter Goncalves comments on the new tunes, "Tribus is in essence a collection of everyday themes set in a time of Iberian legend. The songs touch upon rebellion against Romans in ancient Hispania and Lusitania, expansion to new lands, as well as voyaging into the unknown. I'm excited about the way everything sounds and how it all came together. I've had this vision for a while and it's almost euphoric to be able to finally realize it!"

On the 31 Dec 1999, no planes came crashing out of the sky, nuclear bombs went off or microwave ovens tried to eat anyone. However, times were about to change and in the metal scene change was already well underway. Let us take a stroll through the decade in metal that was.
Many of the 90s big names like Emperor and Pantera prepared to give their last venomous scream dying off in the wake of ever diminishing interest in the metal scene that had plagued the 90s. In the year 2000 a band named “Limp Bizkit” came out with an album called "Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavoured Water" and in a storm nu-metal took over the public perception of heavy music, changing the face of metal irreparably. Although nu-metal had already been pioneered by Korn, bands like Deftones, Disturbed, Mudvayne and Linkin Park all had breakout releases in 2000. More...
