“Omnos,” the new video from Swiss folk metal pioneers ELUVEITIE, can now be viewed on MySpace .

The song comes off the band’s upcoming acoustic/folk album, Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion, which is scheduled for release on April 11th (Europe) and May 19th (North America) via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD will contain 15 folk songs, most of them written in ancient gaulish language.

Commented mainman Chrigel Glanzmann:
“The tracks on Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion take you on a journey through ancient gaulish mythology, a journey deep into the celtic soul. You’ll pass diverse instrumental tracks, setting mythological topics into music, as well as songs, which are exclusively sung in ancient Gaulish language.

Most lyrics are 1,600-2,100 years old. We’re proud and happy we have some illustrious and excellent guest musicians on this album: Fredy Schnyder from NUCLEUS TORN playing the hammered dulcimer on two tracks, Oli S. Tyr from the German medieval folkers FAUN contributing the magical sounds of the long-necked lute on the title track.

Furthermore, Alan Nemtheanga from the Irish pagan metallers PRIMORDIAL presenting his vocal art in two tracks, Mina The Fiddler from the experimental folk band BRANA KETERNA enchanting two tracks with the sounds of the five-stringed viola and at last Sarah Wauquiez, our former bandmember, playing Zugerorgeli (helvetic accordion) on one track.”
