ELUVEITIE Split With Patrick Kistler

Friday, 21st November 2014

Swiss folk metal champs ELUVETIE have announced the departure of Patrick Kistler (Tin & Low Whistles, Bagpipe).

The band states: “With a heavy heart we have to share with you the news that Päde is no longer a part of ELUVETIE. After six years and four albums, he leaves big shoes to fill. While we have no further comment at this time, we would like to wish him all the best for his future endeavours. At the same time, we can announce that we have already found a very talented musician to step in and keep the show going: multi-instrumentalist Matteo Sisti, from our friends and colleagues at Krampus, has not hesitated to jump in and learn our full set in just a few days.

“A big THANK YOU goes out to Matteo and Krampus at this point – in the midst of the European leg of our Origins World Tour, their support is much appreciated. Matteo is joining us as a temporary session musician for the remainder of this tour. We can’t wait to rock the stages together for you!“

Origins, the band’s sixth and latest full length album was recorded at the New Sound Studios by Tommy Vetterli (Coroner, Kreator) and is the successor of the most acclaimed album Helvetios.
