Eluveitie’s saga of success began just when mainman and mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann decided to form ELUVEITIE with the goal to fuse gothenburg styled melodic death metal with ancient folk melodies and themes to a powerful mixture that would soon become the „New Wave Of Folk Metal“.

That was back in 2002 and Chrigel only meant to form a studio project.

Now ELUVEITIE have intensively recapitulated this exciting booster phase of their career. They’ve re-recorded the entire rare “Vên” EP in the line-up of 2012, by which a modern dimension was added to the legendary material, without the slightest loss of its historical splendour.

Together with a re-mastered version of the full-length debut “Spirit”, this results in a profound retrospect that will send both long-time followers and nostalgia addicts as well as ELUVEITIE-newbies and those who have been chasing for these releases for years into rapture.

So look forward to a very special journey through time!
