Swiss folk metal stars Eluveitie are going to release their new studio album “Ategnatos” on the 5th of April 2019 via Nuclear Blast. Today, 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! And this deep, wistful yet hopefull mysticism is also found in the song’s lyrics, which will take you to the very core of the Celtic mythology the album contemplates. “Ambiramus” (gaulish for “Voyage”) is based on a late Celtic literary tradition – the so-called Immrama tales.
“Ambiramus” is the last song we wrote for the album and it’s probably the result of and a testimony to the very inspiring and creative atmosphere, in which we created “Ambiramus”! The song basically “fell into place” after Alain finished the drum tracking, and it was written and arranged in just a few hours. We hope you enjoy it!
The music video was produced by the Polish company Grupa13 in January 2019 and can be seen below.
