The follow-up to 2009's Evocation I - The Arcane Dominion seemed like a far-off mirage in the wake of Eluveitie's drastic restructuring in 2016 - not the first shake-up the band has undergone, but the first that felt like a true splintering of the group. Not one to entertain setbacks, however, bandleader Chrigel Glanzmann assembled another substantial cast of musicians and finished Evocation II - Pantheon with only a slight delay.

I'm hoping for this to be instrumental only.

Well I hope not, for me there is nothing more boring than instrumentals, unless short and one per album max ...

Best album since Spirit came out, not that it was that hard to beat the others, but it's good they still take this seriously

Defined as "Celtic folk metal, Gothenburg metal" is too much. There is literally zero metal on this album. Pure folk music with some rock elements here and there, but not even close to anything metal.

That definition is correct for the band. However, their "Evocation" albums are purely acoustic folk releases.

The "Evocations" are the only albums that really did it for me for this band. However, this is a small step down from "The Arcane Dominion" as it lacks the darkness, such as track like "Nata" and "Desumíis Luge", and the short instrumentals aren't very different from each other.

This has an original sound and it is a nice piece of music. I think it deserves some palms.

I think you ain't aware of "Evocation" series at all. Pretty much what Dark Forever said. Nonetheless, it's a great release.

Does anyone else think Antvmnos sounds a bit like Scarborough Fair?

Unexpectedly good. They reused some old melodies and it helped a lot but some of the new tracks (of course not the two video clips) were good like "Taranis".

If the songwriting is good, I couldn't care less for vocals.

On topic, the new vocalist sounds great, don't miss anything there. The album sounds like a tribute to European folk music and also like a tribute to their previous albums. So not really that interesting but still good songs that are nice to listen to.
