»Ategnatos« has received critical acclaim from the press and public alike:

„ATEGNATOS is 100% Eluveitie. Thumbs up!”
Metal Hammer (D)

“With ‘Ategnatos’, Eluveitie confirms once again their status of one of the best enchantress Metal band ever!” 
Metallian (FR)

“ A great step forward, the most accomplished album of their career so far”
MyRock (FR)

“For the lovers of distant epochs, warring atmospheres, pagan culture and fairytale landscapes, Ategnatos is a delightful godsend, but for Eluveitie this album is the final milestone of a genre now ready to conquer the world. They call it New Wave Of Folk Metal”.
Rock Hard (IT)

Chrigel Glanzmann states:
“Our dear new „baby“ is born and now the time has come for us it „let it go“ and release it into the whole wide world. We’re extremely excited and curious to do so, for we’re proud of ATEGNATOS!
Creating it was a deep and intense experience, it was like a journey, the voyage of a fellowship of nine souls and nine musicians alike. But it’s not only that we formed the songs on that album, it’s also the other way around – ATEGNATOS formed us!
And now we’re beyond excited to let it go on it’s own journey throughout the world and to see how it will speak to all of you!“

The band also presents their third track-by-track video today. Check it out here:

Recordings of »Ategnatos« took place in their beloved New Sound Studio with their engineer of choiceTommy Vetterli. “Yet it was radically different as we only had four weeks to record this time around – as compared to the eight weeks we had for ‘Origins’.” By taking mixing duties to the skilled hand of renowned studio wizard Jens Bogren in his Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden, ELUVEITIE returned to the very spot where they mixed their now legendary »Slania« album more than ten years ago.

With »Ategnatos«, the dedicated nine-piece not only worked with a real string quartet (a premiere!) and granted Fabienne Erni’s sublime mastery of the harp the room it deserved; they also undertook a holistic upgrade resulting in some of the most catchy, most aggressive or most epic tunes the Swiss Metal nobility has ever offered.
