Swiss metallers Eluveitie just revealed the cover artwork of their upcoming new album, entitle "Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion".

Mainman Chrigel Glanzmann states: "As "Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion" is a concept album setting pure gaulish mythology into music, we also wanted to be the artwork in the same line. Kernunnos is one of the most important and central characters in celtic mythology. So we conceived a topical portrayal of that figure, representing as the ancient mythological content of "Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion" as well as it's musical character."


UPDATE (thanks to WinterChild)

A journey through ancient gaulish mythology, songs exclusively sung in ancient gaulish language, lyrics from 1600 - 2100 years old...I'd buy this even if it wasn't adapted by a plethora of metal musicians.

Ah, that seems interesting. An ancient language put to present-day music does seem very interesting.
