Nuclear Blast Records has announced the signing of the Swiss folk metal band ELUVEITIE.

Commented the group: "While being busy finishing up the production of 'Slania' and working on our 'Evocation' concept, we still found the time to travel to Donzdorf in Germany for a few beers and a talk with the people of Nuclear Blast Records. Not only did they make us drunk as hell, but they also impressed us with a great artist roster, 20 years of incredible work (happy birthday, Nuclear Blast!) and their professional but still very 'metal' staff. So we did what had to be done — we came, we saw and we signed.

"We are looking forward to many years of great work together with one of the world's biggest record companies in metal and are glad to announce that our new full-length record, 'Slania', will join the legions of legendary albums released by Nuclear Blast on February 15th, 2008!"

The band also added, "[Our fans may] remember a news entry of some weeks ago, telling you about 'Evocation I' and 'II' on Twilight Records... You remember right, and no, we weren't drunk. But we are very happy that Twilight and Nuclear Blast decided to join forces, so Twilight will take care of our back catalogue ('Spirit' [2006] is being re-released by Twilight these days and our first EP, 'Ven' [2003], will follow in spring 2008, while 'Evocation I' (that's right: it's gonna be two full albums) will be released through Nuclear Blast in winter 2008."
