Eluveitie release title track from upcoming album

Watch Ategnatos here, album due April 5th 2019 Eluveitie

We all wade through archetypes. We all ARE archetypes. Distant echoes of a life both primeval and noble. To embrace these archetypes, to accept them not only as a part of life but as life itself is what some may call enlightenment, some peace of mind. Eluveitie call it Ategnatos. And by using their longest ever gap between albums to gather momentum, they just forged their strongest album around it. Ategnatos will be released on April 5th 2019 via Nuclear Blast.

Today, the band has released the title track as the debut single, right in time for the pre-order start. The song can be heard and watched in the form of a music video produced by the Polish company Grupa13 in January 2019 and can be seen here:

Chrigel Glanzmann states:

“So here it is, the first single off our new album (well, apart the ‘sneak peek’ you already got a year ago with ‘Rebirth’), being the title track itself. It’s the song off the album introducing you into the whole mental realm that is ‘Ategnatos‘! Its message comes inconvenient maybe, challenging, evocative. This is a call from Antumnos!”

Ategnatos will be released April 5 and can be pre-ordered via Amazon here
