Commented mainman Chrigel Glanzmann: „"Thousandfold" is about the ambivalent character of Orgetorix, a Helvetian lord and freedom fighter who lived in times of the Gaulish war. The lyrics question the „official version" of the occurances drafted later by the roman emperor in „De Bello Gallico" which can primarly be labeled as political propaganda. We tried to figure out what really could have occured. So give your creative vein full scope, give it a go and draw the beste artwork fort his song! The best one will be the cover of the clubsingle! We're looking forward to all your submissions! This will be really exciting!"
„Thousandfold" comes off the brandnew ELUVEITIE album „Everything Remains" which will be released on February 19, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records! The song including its video clip will debut at the bands MySpace profile (www.myspace.com/eluveitie) on December 23, 2009!
