Eluveitie - Announce New Members

Swiss metallers Eluveitie have issued the following update:

"During the last couple of weeks we received many applications for the two vacant positions in our band. We'd like to use this opportunity to thank all musicians who contacted us for their messages, efforts and interest in our band. We read all applications assiduously and thought a lot about the whole thing.

Now we are very pleased to announce that we have decided for two new band members! And we are as confident to have found two awesome musicians and as we're proud and happy to introduce them to you:

Päde Kistler:
Playing diverse kinds of bagpipes, as well as whistles and acoustic guitars, Päde is a multi-instrumentalist and especially an experienced piper! To some of you (especially the folk interested guys) Päde might not be unfamiliar: He used to proof his abilities as musician and also as disarming performer in the Swiss folk band Branâ Keternâ, where also Meri and Chrigel used to play. So we esteem Päde since a couple of years, both as great musician as well as a fantastic guy and friend.

Kay Brem:
Being a long-time rock'n'roll bastard of the Swiss metal scene, Kay makes a very skilled bass player that will for sure kick your asses as hell. Kay formerly played with the Swiss metal machines Cataract and Tribes Of Caïn and honoured or rather ravaged countless stages all over Europe. As Päde, we also got to know and esteem Kay as a great musician and person quite a while ago.

You can find a picture of the two new members here.

We are really happy, content and proud to have Päde and Kay on board - both of them being great musicians, as well as just fucking cool people that perfectly fit into our band.

So we raise our horns and ardently welcome them in the Eluveitie camp!

Your Eluveitie crew"

Both of them definitely have enough hair for the job.

That was fast work. Good luck in any case.

Cool. Will it sound any different though?

wow! that was fast, i mean the was no problem with the bass player, but the pipe/flute was a difficult combo, and the fund almost an identical replacement.
Hasta la victoria, siempre!

Nice news! This may change their sound a little.. I'm sure it's for the better.

Or if the sound stays somewhere close to this one it will be still great...

It looks promising I'm curious of what it's going to bring live becouse the previous guys were very special (anyone who has seen them knows)

^^ Definitely agreed. They really brought some unique qualities to the band. The last time I saw eluveitie Sevan was on all fours headbanging, pounding the ground with his fists. It was fucking rad!

I have no doubt that these guys will do great in eluveitie. Although the kirder brothers will be greatly missed, horns up for Kay and Päde!
