ELUVEITIE – Second Song Off "Helvetios" Released!

ELUVEITIE – New track from "Helvetios" Out! - 2012-01-04

2012-01-04 - Swiss new wave of folk metal superstars ELUVEITIE just released the second song off the bands upcoming album „Helvetios“, due on February 10, 2012 via Nuclear Blast.

„Helvetios“ is a concept album about the gaulish war (58-50 B.C.), the story of the war being told in a chronological timeline.

Go to http://www.facebook.com/eluveitie to check out „A Rose For Epona“ featuring hurdy gurdy player Anna Murphy on vocals.

The first single, „Meet The Enemy“ can also be streamed there.

Commented mainman Chrigel Glanzmann: „The song "A Rose For Epona" appears about in the middle of the storyline - so, it tells about the time when the gaulish war broke out already. The Helvetians decided to leave their homeland and migrate to the west coast of Gallia, to start a new life there. In the time the song tells about, many Helvetians had to face pretty much shattered hopes. And so does the protagonist, from whose viewpoint the song is written: A young gaulish woman. She was part of the helvetic migration, but after the battle of Bibracte, all hopes that she and her people would ever reach their new home were torn to pieces. Furthermore you can imagine: She probably had lost her husband on the battlefields of Bibracte and she had to face fact that she can be glad if their common newborn child would not be killed and she herself would be sold into roman slavery. To sum it up: Her situation was desperate. In this situation "our" young gaulish woman despairs, can't accept her fate and turns to her goddess Epona... and accuses her for having forsaken her people. This is what the song expresses.

On a historical note: "Epona" was a gaulish goddess which was, among other things, in charge of taking care of horsemen and the cavallery. All over Gallia there were Epona temples where people traditionally offered up freshly cut roses or rose petals to their goddess.“
