The Skinny: Swiss folk-metal pioneers, Eluveitie, have made their new album Origins available for streaming via SoundCloud – listen to it in its entirety just below. Origins will be released on August 1st (EUR), August 4th (UK) and on August 5th (North America) via Nuclear Blast. Cover artwork was created by none other than the group’s mastermind himself, Chrigel Glanzmann.

Origins was recorded once again with producer Tommy Vetterli (Kreator, Coronor) at New Sound Studios in Switzerland. The single “The Call Of The Mountains” (English version) is now available in the digital format. The full song in Swiss German, French, Italian and Romansh will be on the beautiful Nuclear Blast mail-order edition of Origins and via iTunes.
