IT’S NOT TOO EARLY TO GET EXCITED ABOUT PAGANFEST ’09: ELUVEITIE HAVE RELEASED A NEW SONG!
Last week Vince told y’all about the 2nd annual, MetalSucks sponsored Paganfest USA, which will, once again, include the testicle-burstingly awesome Eluveitie. That Switzerland’s best pagan metal band (or possibly just band, period) is coming back to the States for another run of drunken raping and pillaging should be enough to get your blood pressure up, but in case, for some bizarre reason, it ain’t, the band has now released a new song, “Omnos,” on their MySpace page.
Like all the tracks on the band’s forthcoming album, Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion, the song is actually an old folk tune written entirely in gaulish. Which is not to be confused with goulash. Yum.
Speaking of goulash: What I really dig about the track is that, like Turisas’ version of “Rasputin,” it has a really Russian night club vibe in it. The only time I’ve ever seen my old man got so drunk he puked was in a Russian night club, so, y’know, good times. Good times.
Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion April 11 on Nuclear Blast.
