4.0 excellentRobert Garland STAFF | June 17th 14

With more staying power than the previous releases it's clear that Eluveitie have a lot more to offer until their pool of talent runs dry. Origins picks up where Helvetios left off, bombastic rhthms and constant melodies interplay with the group's harsh growls. It's catchy, it's infectious - - a ride from start to finish. If there are any flaws to be found, it's in the band's ability to be completely comfortable with their sound.

It's fantastic, the best thing the band has ever done - and they were a damn good band already before.

4.0 excellentInsomniumGatherum | September 9th 14

The element that sets this album apart from previous releases is the showcasing of Eluveitie's
talented guitar work. The addition of Rafael Salzmann at lead guitar has brought the guitars of
the band, from a rhythmic background, to the forefront on some tracks. There is also more
Gothenburg riffing on this album than previous efforts. Don't worry, the folk melodies remain,
although this is hands-down Eluveitie's most aggressive release yet. In conclusion, I give this
album a slight edge over 'Slania', mostly because of it's more hostile approach. On a side note,
the increased usage of Anna Murphy's screams adds a whole new dimension to the band's vocals.

another solid entertaining but not mind-blowing album by the swiss, nameless, darkness, virunus, inception, vianna are all excellent followed by the main highlights of the album in silver sister and king, not one to miss for any folk afficionado
