Eight years after melodic death/folk metal masters Eluveitie released the acoustic album "Evocation I," the Swiss musicians have stored their electronic instruments again in the rehearsal room. "Evocation II - Pantheon" will be released August 18th via Nuclear Blast Records. The album marks the debut for new members: Matteo Sisti (bagpipes/whistles), Alain Ackermann (drums), Jonas Wolf (guitars), Michalina Malisz (hurdy gurdy) and Fabienne Erni (vocals/harps/mandola).

Last week, the band unleashed first new song "Epona" (check it out below) and provoked some euphoric fan reactions. To guide you even deeper into the world of "Evocation II - Pantheon" and the new track, the band now unveils an info video about the background story and singer Chrigel explains who "Epona" is. Watch that clip at the bottom.

"We're super happy and proud to present you 'Epona' - the first single of our upcoming album 'Evocation II - Pantheon'!" states front man Chrigel Glanzmann. "The song is an ode to the riding goddess queen of the Celtic pantheon! And this not only lyrically. Also musically, for even though 'Epona' is an acoustic track, the song surges ahead with verve, power and speed and dashes like a galloping horse! It is a good song to give you a first glimpse of the raw, wild, honest, very folky and thoroughly celtic character of 'Evocation II - Pantheon'!"

I was concerned when Anna, Merlin and Ivo left, but this sounds pretty good. Fabienne's voice is complementary to what Anna's was. I also like the flourishes that Alain put into his playing.
