Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie checked in with the following studio blog update on the recording of "Helvetios" from guitarist/vocalist Sime Koch:

"Finally we’ve got some time to give you updates on the rest of the recordings for “Helvetios”. Watch out for new posts during the next few days! Sime goes first:

"Originally, Chrigel was supposed to record the Mandola. But since he was busy with an abundance of other instruments, I stepped in. Which wasn’t too much of a change since I’m playing it live during some of our shows anyway.

"Both the mandola and the acoustic guitars have been recorded at the Soundfarm studio in Kriens, Switzerland. After testing plenty of microphones the perfect guitar sound was found quickly, and while Tommy went through the test recordings we were already tracking the first mandola-parts. Since the mandola is not much in the foreground on the new record this was rather painless. After that we were ready to move on with the first recordings using my favourite acoustic guitar, a Tacoma USA (R.I.P.). Besides one little exception, all songs have been recorded in standard E tuning (unlike on “Evocation I” and “Everything Remains”). Only one small interlude was played in a D-A-D-G-A-D. Everything was done within one, although very long, single day."
