Swiss folk metal mainstays Eluveitie have premiered the music video for their track “King”.
“King” comes off of the band’s forthcoming album Origins which is due out August 4.
Check out the music video for “King” as well as statements from the band here.
The band commented:
“We are excited and proud to present to you ‘King’, the first video for our new album! Produced with AVA studios in a very fitting, beautiful nature setting, the clip focuses on what we’re all about: the musicians, the instruments, the music. Both the song “King” and our new album “Origins” are the result of our journey of the past 10 years and the symbol of who we’ve become. We can’t wait to read what you think in the comments!”
Vocalist and guitarist Chrigel Glanzmann said this about “King”:
“’King’ tells the story of an impressive and legendary character in Gallic history: The high king Ambicatus. We tried to capture the vehemence, the power and the majestic grandeur of this historical figure with our music but also the mythologically strong character of Ambicatus’ comes into effect. The song presents itself just as mightily as the illustrious leader: ‘King’ is a very folky, mid-tempo track and just grooves intensely – especially the instrumental part where the song goes all out. Pure fucking folk metal! I hope you like ’King’ just as much as we do!”
