Eluveitie Are Folk-Metal Superstars at NYC Tour Stop

Wanderers Towards Rebirth North American Tour 2019

Since their debut album Spirit was released in 2006, Swiss Folk Metal band Eluveitie has been winning over crowds all across the world during their 15-year journey. Now they have returned to North America to treat fans with a one of a kind sound and performance.

The tour dubbed Wanderers Towards Rebirth is in support of the band’s most recent studio album Ategnatos (Nuclear Blast) which was released back in April but also their upcoming live release titled Live At Masters of Rock, which will showcase the bands high energy and larger than life live show.

Eluveitie embarked on the final date of the Wanderers Towards Rebirth North American Tour at New York City’s Playstation Theater and we were there for all the action.

Eluveitie’s live show is a full-on musical experience, their sound is powerful, enchanting and at times mystical. Songs that you can imagine on a season of HBO’S Game of Thrones are much more intense in the live setting. Live, the music is a unique experience, a journey of sorts. 

This is for many different reasons.

A major one is being able to get up close and personal seeing traditional instruments like the Hurdy Gurdy, Mandola, Bagpipes, Celtic Harp and various pipes and whistles mixed in with modern instrumentation!

The band members are all smiles and looked to be having fun, interacting well with each other and the crowd. Everyone in the Playstation Theater was together singing along and circle pitting in perfect harmony.

The band performed a nearly 90 minute set of Folk Metal perfection, which included fan-favorite tracks like “King”, “Deathwalker”, “Quoth The Raven”, “Breathe” and more! Some were played in English and some played in Eluveitie’s native Swiss language which fans enjoyed equally as much.
