Chrigel Glanzmann, head and brain of swiss band Eluveitie, always said that, in the beginning, there was not band, just a will to mix Death Metal with ancient folk melodies. But without really knowing it, he created was is now called « New wave of Folk Metal » and what started as a studio project quickly became a live war machine.
With 4 albums under their belt, Eluveitie is one of Switzerland best selling artists/bands outside of their country. Especially in the States where their last album crushed the top 30 on its release week !
In march 2014, the band was awarded « Best live act » on the annualy « Swiss Music Awards » ; an unusal recognition for this kind of band… and music.
This year will see the release of a brand new album, probably in summer. Meanwhile, the band is also preparing their next european tour ; a tour that will stop at Kulturfabrik on december, 3.
