It’s hard to believe that it was a decade ago that Eluveitie started setting the folk metal world on fire, but alas — the band is celebrating their 10th anniversary by releasing a 2-CD Digipak bundle called The Early Years. Among other exciting tidbits of the band’s history (including their first full-length album Spirit), the collection will contain a re-recorded version of Vên, Eluveitie’s debut EP. “We had a lot of fun putting those songs on tape again — some of which we have been playing live to this day and that have developed together with us over all these years,” stated frontman and founder Chrigel Glanzmann. The Early Years comes out on August 28th through Nuclear Blast Records.
