When I announced the performer lineup for the 2019 “ShipRocked” Cruise (seen HERE), a lot of Metalheads were wondering just what in the heck was going on with the announcement for the 2019 “70K Tons Of Metal” excursion since that usually came up in July.

A lot has gone on in the world of Folk Metal sensations Eluveitie since we last witnessed their unique brand of musical assault and if you’ve been a fan for any longer period of time and are not up to date, then the musicians you see in the first clip from their upcoming album will be a bit of a mystery to you. Yeah it seems as though a number of the favorites have gone on to other adventures and as someone who has loved them since the “Slania” days can say with truth that I look forward to hearing their next chapter. Speaking of next chapter, Eluveitie is back with an album that will be called “Evocation II: Pantheon” and it will come from their longtime label Nuclear Blast Records. I’ve embedded the video clip for “Epona” below.
