Eluveitie release brand new single and music video – “Ambiramus”
As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, Swiss folk metal act Eluveitie are going to release their new studio album “Ategnatos” on April 5th 2019 via Nuclear Blast. Now the band proudly present a brand new single “Ambiramus”. Chrigel Glanzmann states: “Here you go – the next single off our upcoming album: “Ambiramus”! It’s definitely one of the most exceptional songs from our discography! “Ambiramus” comes in quite groovy and with a light-hearted, yet racing folk reel in the chorus and a very accessible overall appearance; easily the brightest song we’ve ever written. Yet at the same time it goes to where the actual magic of traditional Celtic folk music exists: a place where cheerfulness and melancholy, hardship and hope, glee and deep mysticism meet to become one. We hope you enjoy it!”

Recordings of “Ategnatos” took place in their beloved New Sound Studio with their engineer of choice Tommy Vetterli. Chrigel says: “Yet it was radically different as we only had four weeks to record this time around – as compared to the eight weeks we had for “Origins”.” By taking mixing duties to the skilled hand of renowned studio wizard Jens Bogren in his Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden, Eluveitie returned to the very spot where they mixed their now legendary “Slania” album more than ten years ago. With “Ategnatos”, the dedicated nine-piece also premiered working with a real string quartet.
