Eluveitie- “Ategnatos” – (2019) Single Review
Album: Ategnatos -Single
Label: Nuclear Blast
Non-Airable Tracks: N/A
Description: Do you like fantasy? Do you like fanfare of the Renaissance? At most listening to this single, it makes me want to get into Game of Thrones. What I’ve come to deeply appreciate from the beginning was the monologue; almost like a fictional lore from J.R. Tolkien. I like the overall contour of the single; its a good mix of slow and simple then it starts to get aggressive. Overall a good balance of soft versus aggressive. The vocals oddly remind me more of Ryan Clark of Demon Hunter. It was a good experience listening to folk-metal as its a sub-genre I have never experienced; It’s like hearing a more aggressive version of Dropkick Murphys. I recommend this single; a mix of tuneful and edgy music.
Sounds Like: Ensiferum, Fintroll, Heidevolk, Korpiklaani
