Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion

Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion is the third full-length album by the Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie. It was released on April 17, 2009 through Nuclear Blast. Contrary to their previous works, this album is almost entirely acoustic. The vocals are primarily handled by Hurdy Gurdist Anna Murphy. The album cover represents Cernunnos, a Celtic divinity of nature.

Speaking about the new record, vocalist Chrigel Glanzmann stated:

“As Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion is a concept album setting pure gaulish mythology into music, we also wanted the artwork to be in the same line. Kernunnos is one of the most important and central characters in celtic mythology, so we conceived a topical portrayal of that figure, representing the ancient mythological content of Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion, as well as its musical character.”
