Swiss melodic-folk-death-metallers ELUVEITIE hit the studio recently to record Helvetios, the highly anticipated follow-up to 2010's Everything Remains (As It Never Was)! An early 2012 release is expected.
The band once again returned to the famous New Sound Studios to work with producer Tommy Vetterli (CORONER, ex-KREATOR) on the drums, guitars, vocals, production and mix.
Most folk instruments and female vocals will be recorded by Anna Murphy and Marco Jencarelli at the Soundfarm Studios in Lucerne.
In other news, ELUVEITIE are also set to hold the first edition of their own festival “Eluveitie & Friends” on December 30, 2011 at the Volkshaus in Zurich. Other bands to participate will be CORONER and KORPIKLAANI among others.

ELUVEITIE’s latest album, Everything Remains As It Never Was, scanned approximately 1600 copies in it’s first week of release in the United States. The CD landed at position No. 23 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
Everything Remains (As It Never Was) is the follow up to the bands successful acoustic/folk release Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion.

The album was recorded by Tommy Vetterli (CORONER) and mixed by Colin Richardson (SLIPKNOT, MACHINE HEAD, KREATOR, BEHEMOTH, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE etc.).
