Frontman Chrigel Glanzmann had this to say about the recently released track:
“We’re happy and proud to already present you ‘Meet The Enemy” – track 7 off our upcoming album Helvetios!
It tells you about the ‘encounter’ the Helvetians had with the roman legions in the year 58 BC – one of the crucial points in their history, for it was basically when the gaulish wars erupted.
So the song is pretty much filled with wrath and rage – upholding the furious spirit you might know from tracks such as “Kingdom Come Undone”, ‘Bloodstained Ground’ or ‘Lament’.
Furthermore the song’s substantial instrumentation (including fiddle, hurdy gurdy, whistles and uilleann pipes) is also enriched by one of the guest musicians, we had the honor to work with – Fredy Schnyder (from NUCLEUS TORN) who contributed some amazing parts on the hammered dulcimer.
Hope you enjoy!“
The band’s fourth studio album “Helvetios” will be released on February 10th in Europe and February 28th in North America via Nuclear Blast.
