2012 marks the 10th year in the career of Swiss “New Wave Of Folk Metal” pioneers ELUVEITIE! In order to celebrate this anniversary properly, the band around founder and main man Chrigel Glanzmann has decided to re-record the very first EP “Vên” completely and to re-master the debut album “Spirit” in order to put these two sought-after collector’s items into one 2CD-bundle. This magnificent gift to the fans is entitled “The Early Years” and will be released via Nuclear Blast Records on the 17th of August. As a foretaste, the band has now published the re-recorded version of the track `Lament´ from “Vên” that can be enjoyed here within the framework of an entertaining photo slideshow, including pictures of ELUVEITIE’s early days: http://youtu.be/Fggu2sa2hVU Additionally, the track can be downloaded via the band page on the Nuclear Blast website.
