Swiss folk metal act Eluveitie recently announced the band has begun recording a new LP "Helvetios" at New Sound Studio in Pfäffikon, Switzerland. The new album is set to be produced by Coroner's Tommy Vetterli (a.k.a. Tommy T. Baron) and is tentatively scheduled for an early 2012 release.

Eluveitie is also scheduled to appear on the upcoming 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise. Details on the festival are available here.

The following announcement was made on the band's newly launched website:

"New Album announced, HELVETIOS is coming in 2012!

"Never resting, we have made good use of the time between the shows of our Everything Remains World Tour, and are therefore able to announce that as of today, September 1st, Merlin has begun drum tracking for our new Album titled HELVETIOS at the Newsound studios in Pfäffikon, Switzerland. We are again working with Tommy Vetterli (Coroner, Ex-Kreator) who will record drums, guitars and vocals and will also be producing and mixing the record. Most folk instruments and also vocals will be recorded by Anna Murphy & Marco Jencarelli at the Soundfarm studios in Lucerne.

"All that’s left to say for now is that we are extremely excited about the new material, and we cannot wait for the release in early 2012. Further updates will appear regularly on this site, both in news as well as in a studio blog in which the bandmembers themselves will keep you up to date.

Last but not least, we are only hours away of posting the first episode of EluTV, so that should keep you entertained in the meantime!"
