“A ROSE” FOR ELUVEITIE
Eluveitie have released a new song, “A Rose for Epona,” which you can check out below. I usually like Eluveitie, but this lil’ ditty ain’t doing much for me — I feel weird saying this, and I’m sure the band’s most hardcore supporters will all have fucking aneurysm for me daring to suggest such a thing, but between the drum loops and the guitar tone and the fact that Chrigel Glanzmann’s vocals are almost entirely absent from the song in favor of Anna Murphy taking the lead, the first band the tune reminded me of was Evanescence. And then every now and then there’s some flute to remind you that, oh yeah, this is a pagan metal band. It just seems, I dunno, weird.
But maybe you’ll like it more?
“A Rose for Epona” comes off of Eluveitie’s new album, Helvetios, which Nuclear Blast will release on February 10 in Europe and February 28 in North America.
