2014-06-13 - Swiss folk metal pioneers ELUVEITIE have released “King,” the first single off their upcoming sixth studio album Origins, due for release in North America on August 1st in Europe, August 4th in the U.K. and August 5th in North America.
“‘King’ tells the story of an impressive and legendary character in Gallic history: The high king Ambicatus,” states ELUVEITIE vocalist, guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist Chrigel Glanzmann. “We tried to capture the vehemence, the power, and the majestic grandeur of this historical figure with our music but the mythologically strong character of Ambicatus' story also comes into effect. The song presents itself just as mightily as the illustrious leader: ‘King’ is a very folky, mid-tempo track and just grooves intensely - especially the instrumental part where the song goes all out. Pure fucking folk metal! I hope you like ‘King’ just as much as we do!“
