Origins is the sixth full-length album by the Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie. The album was released August 01, 2014 through Nuclear Blast Records.

ConceptEdit

Origins deals with the Celtic mythology, “or to be more precise, with aetiological tales from Gaul”, commented vocalist and front man Chrigel Glanzmann.[1] Glanzmann also created the album artwork for this new offering and goes on to explain: “The album cover of Origins is designed after the hammer/club-shaped 'halo' of Sucellos, as seen on a statue that was found in a shrine of a gallo-roman household in today's France. It was created under the scientific supervision of experts from the University of Zürich“.[1]
