Eluveitie - Recording New Material


Swiss metallers Eluveitie have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:

"Hails everybody!

Some of you might have heard some rumours about it already... and it's true, we're heavily working on our new album!
Since since 2,5 weeks already we're in the studio, recording our next sword blow. Drums and most of the guitars are already nailed!

And as yet we are really, really satisfied. I mean really! We've decided to record our upcoming album in the famous Swiss Newsound studios, owned and run by none lesser than Coroner mastermind Tommy Vetterli (also ex-Kreator and former live guitarist of Vodoo Cult)!

And so far it is hell of a pleasure to work with him, engeneering and recording the album! It's great to profit of his enormeous experience (both, as producer/engeneer, as well as musician) on one hand, but also to work and have a good time with him as a very likeable and down-to-earth guy on the other hand.

And judging after how the so far recorded tracks sound, this album will definitely cleave your heads open!

The album will be mixed by the british soundforge god Colin Richardson (Behemoth, Machine Head, Kreator, Sepultura, Carcass, Slipknot, As I Lay Dying, Trivium and many more).

And this brings me to the next thing to mention: Yes, after an acoustic release we're thoroughly up for a massive metal album again! So "Evocation I" kinda became the well known "calm before the storm".

Some of the songs on this album I began to write quite a long time ago, some others developped in a very short time during the last couple of months. All in all I think that this album becomes our most dark and severe release so far - brimmed with mystical, convoluted and partly insanely fast celtic folk melody lines, but at the same time with pure, juggernautish metal. The album's probably more "metal" than any other release we did so far.

So stay tuned!

I wish all of you some great and pleasant autum weeks! We'll be back with more news in a while... but for now I have to go "back to work" and prepare some angry and nasty vocal recordings.

Cheers from the studio.

Chrigel."

I agree, it seems to be getting a bit much.. I have a feeling they'll become another Korpiklaani, releasing a new album each month or so.

Eluveitie rocks... Just because they can do more albums than others, doesn't mean they suck. Evocation I and II are like one big album, so it's normal that different parts of one big thing come sooner than some other average bands albums.

I must disagree. Slania, for example is a quite good album, and Inis Mona gives me an eargasm.

Those were different times... Nearly all big acts were releasing stuff every year or so.

No they are not becoming another Korpiklanni, this was there plan from a year or two ago. Spirit and Slania were released in relative long time frame. Then they decided to do a two part, one year release. Look at Devin Townsend for instance. They are in the process of doing a four part one year release. Sure so far the first albums from each haven't been all that great, but both bands have stated each release will be different from the previous. I for one am looking forward to this. Part 1 though, should have been done differently...

As much as I liked part 1, whenever a band claims that their next album will be "darker" and/or "heavier", they seem to replace creativity with those.

It is...no official release date yet though. But it will be out this year, as part of a two part 'concept' so to speak.

Im beginning to hate these concept albums.... just write good material without filler crap. Not all fans have time to listen to entire albums and take in a whole story. There was a time i digged concept stuff, but now i realise how bad most concept albums are.

I just feel that the albums are stretched out in quality. Take Korpiklaani, 3 albums in 3 years, all have few decent songs on them.. If they just took a little more time for one album, and make one good album instead of 3 crappy ones.
