Eluveitie Posts New Song Online

Swiss folk metal banmd ELUVEITIE has posted another new song off their highly anticipated new album "Everything Remains (As It Never Was)." The song, "Kingdom Come Undone," can be heard on the band's MySpace page.

Bandleader Chrigel Glanzmann comments, "Here comes the second song off our upcoming album we'd like to present you: 'Kingdom come undone!' One of our harsher tracks, where juggernautish riffs meet with onrushing folk melodies. And exactly the same furious character also lies in the lyrics. The song deals with Vercingetorix, a Gaulish freedom fighter who lived in the time of the Gaulish war. His endeavor was to unite the Gaulish clans. The song presents you a passionate speech, like he probably could have held it in front of assembled Gaulish chieftains.
In that sense: This is V... for Vercingetorix!" More...

All this is accompanied by our trademark sound, lots of never-before-heard instruments in the metal-scene, folklore and legends that make it overall the most versatile album we have created so far.”

1. Blodmarsch (intro)
2. Solsagan
3. Den Frusna Munnen
