Seeing Eluveitie live is something magical, maybe its the folk atmosphere that they bring but Eluveitie is a great band to see live. Right around 9 o clock, the lights dimmed and the show began. After a minute or so of the intro, the band came in full blast. The setlist seemed somewhat small but were on the heavy side as almost none of the soft songs like in Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion were played. A good amount from Helvetios with songs like Havoc, Meet the Enemy and even The Seige saw action onstage. The show ended with the fan-favourite Inis Mona, a classic ender for Eluveitie. Overall the band played great and the crowd responded positively towards them with not one hiccup present throughout the whole.
Before Eluveitie came on stage at the Marquee Theater on the 15th of February, we were able to speak with the founder and frontman Chrigel. We spoke of the current tour and how the crowd responded so far to them, their time spent on the 70000 Tons of Metal Cruise tour, the new record and how was it compared to the other albums recording-wise, and of all things Gaulish.
