Eluveitie has had one hell of a 2016, losing vocalist and hurdy gurdy player Anna Murphy, guitarist Ivo Henzi, and drummer Merlin Sutter. The band hasn't lost its founder, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Chrigel Glanzmann though, so Eluveitie will press onward! More specifically, Eluveitie is currently writing Evocation II, which is the followup to Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion from 2009, and the last Evocation album.

Glanzmann says the album will be rougher and contain a lot more folk influences than its predecessor, and that he hopes it'll be out sometime in spring 2017.

I'm excited for this but just wondering who the session musicians will be?

Maybe Liv Kristine? She's currently their live singer, right?

I'm only familiar with a few Eluveitie tracks, so excuse my ignorance, but what happened to Anna Murphy?

There was a thread about it a while back. She, and the long-time drummer and guitarist left in order to pursue other projects. They didn't divulge much about it at the time, however when I was copying the link from the video above, I did see there was a video in which she discusses her departure; didn't have time to watch it though.

But will it still be stonewalled in production?

Here's the video where Anna talks about why she left the band. It's right at the beginning.

If they have her as their session vocalist will they also have Alain Ackermann on drums, and Michalina Malisz on hurdy gurdy?

I liked the first Evocation. Now I'm really curious, and some confused, at what "rougher and with more folk influences" means. Wonder if that indicates a traditional or modern folk sound?

Is she? I wasnt aware about it, it would be a great addition!.

I would prefer to listen to a "normal" Eluveitie album but I guess he needs time to complete a full new line-up.

I finally had a chance to listen to the interview with Anna. For those who don't know, she said that they kicked Merlin out without consulting her or Ivo, and so they thought it was unfair, and decided to go with him. I'm sure there's more to it than that, but that's all she really said about it in the interview. It's unfortunate that they lost so many good members, but I'm sure they'll find people who are more than capable, and they might even bring something new to the table.
