The lyrics are partly based on Gaulish inscriptions , e. 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.

Carnutian Forest. I would give it a perfect 50, if it weren't for the fact that this is their third album and these guys and gals haven't progressed anywhere and they insist on playing the same crap again and again on each of their albums.
Eluveitie are not Korpiklaani to be repetitive and fun at the same time. It actually might be that Evocation is acoustic as a deliberate attempt at sounding different. And somehow, Eluveitie still fail at this. However, the thing that pisses me off the most is that this album is called Evocation I. Meaning that there will also be an Evocation II.
Eluveitie have so far been a band that have always ended up a bit less than the sum of their parts. Acoustic CDs are all the rage this weather, with Elvenking and Folkearth among those getting in on the act recently, but despite the plethora of fancy-dan instruments they make use of, Eluveitie are maybe a less likely candidate for success in this field. Wisely realizing that his guttural style would not fit in with the more serene music on this CD, frontman and multi-instrumentalist band leader Chrigil Glanzmann has taken the commendably modest step of keeping away from the microphone, with hurdy-gurdist Anna Murphy suddenly pushed into the spotlight to provide the biggest part of the singing.
With Glanzmann offering only the occasional scream or growled passed, someone previously a background member of the band has suddenly found herself very much front and center, but she proves to be a well up to the task. More credit is due in the vocal department considering that, with the exception of the spoken intro track, there is not a word of English to be heard on the CD, with everything else being sung in the very, very dead Gaulish language, and hearing the vocalists wrapping their tongues so convincingly around the rough-hewn ancient words is impressive to say the least.
The single biggest problem is that, at 15 tracks in length, there is a bit of an absence of actual songs to be found. As pleasant as the interludes and short run-throughs of traditional tunes are, they are too numerous to allow the CD to develop any momentum. The decision is a mystifying and pretty needless one as well — in a band so skilled with a huge array of instruments, surely some sort of organic percussion could have been used in these parts to better effect?
Quite why Eluveitie have gone to the trouble of creating a rigid set of rules for the CD only to go ahead break them in such perplexing fashion when it suits them really takes the shine off the atmosphere they have gone to such pains to create in the first place.
