ELUVEITIE - reveal album cover; start pre-order; release digital single 'Epona'!

ELUVEITIE - reveal cover; pre-order & single! - 2017-06-09

2017-06-09 - Eight years after melodic death/folk metal masters ELUVEITIE released their acoustic album »Evocation I«, the Swiss musicians have stored their electronic instruments again in the rehearsal room. »Evocation II - Pantheon« will be released August 18th via Nuclear Blast Records.

Today, the band reveals the new cover artwork.

The band has also launched the pre-order for »Evocation II - Pantheon« - and the first single of the new record, 'Epona', is now purchasable digitally as well!

About the new cover tells mastermind Chrigel:
»Evocation II« is a journey back to the source of it all: Antumnos, the otherworld. Join us on this wayfare through the Celtic pantheon, the world of the gods of our ancestors! The album cover expresses nothing less but exactly this! It's full of symbolism and meaning and depicts things of deepest meaning and importance in Celtic mythology.
The symbol contains the 'great wheel', symbolizing the wheel of the year with the four seasons and the equinoxes – forming the foundations of Celtic mythology. The great wheel is framed by a tripartite Enneagram; while three is an important number in Celtic mythology in general, we also face trinity in the Celtic pantheon! While the inner circle contains the initials of the names of the deities revered on this album – arranged tripartitedly according to their relations within the pantheon and place in the mythology – the outer circle utters an invitation as well as a blessing, a magical benediction for the one to dare to enter and set forth on this journey. The core of the symbol implies triune symbolism. The depiction shows the god Lugus, who was sometimes also adressed in the plural – Lugoves – since he's a triune god, as well as a tricephalos. The 'one with the skillful hand' and 'artisan of all skills' is depicted and a combination of two important symbols: On the one hand he's shown as 'high king' (and druid of druids), a typical gallic symbolism of an essential meaning and sigificance. On the other hand he's framed by the gallic 'lord of the animals/lord of life' symbolism: The character surrounded with diverse animals, but being strongly connected with all of them at the same time.
So after all, the album cover vibrantly and mystically expresses the content of »Evocation II«! Join & let the journey begin!"
