I have been waiting for this album to hit the market. Eluveitie is my all time favorite band; I fell in love with their music a few years ago and have listened to all the songs they’ve released so far.

I am always afraid to like a band as much as I like them, because nowadays, bands seem to put out a few amazing albums and then they go in a totally different direction, which is fine-- artists are free to express themselves-- but it’s also frustrating at times.

I was literally holding my breath as the songs downloaded to my computer, hoping their unique sound would still be present. So, it finally downloaded and I gave it a listen.

Wow. .. OUTSTANDING! Instant 5 stars.

I was not disappointed. If you like their previous works, especially Helvetios, you will like Origins. What I like most about this album, as with most of their previous works, is that they are consistent yet varied at the same time. All the songs sound like they belong together but it’s varied enough that you don’t fee like you’re listening to the same song over and over again.

All in all, if you liked Eluveitie’s music, you will like this. I am extraordinarily pleased with Origins and hope very much that Eluveitie will continue to produce awesome music!

I highly recommend this album.

Definitely a solid album, but it doesn't compare to Helvetios. Will probably need a few more listens to see where it ranks compared to Everything Remains/Slania.

Highlights for me so far are From Darkness, Celtos, and King.

Edit 9/20/14: Bumping up solid album to incredible album and 4 stars to 5 stars. Helvetios is still the best, but I absolutely love the violin parts on this (and the other instruments, too, of course). I've been listening to Eluveitie pretty much nonstop for months and I just saw them on the opening date of their tour in Baltimore (this is so good that even though I like Metsatöll and really like Tyr (both of whom are supporting Eluveitie on the tour), I haven't listened to them at all in the months leading up to the tour). It compares to Helvetios IMO, and while not quite as good, it's a close 2nd. After that, I'd put Everything Remains, Slania, then The Arcane Dominion. Not crazy about Spirit (aside from Tegernako), and Ven is good, but it's quite short.

Anyway, for some more specific thoughts, Chrigel's screams feel louder and more intense than ever before.

A perfectly flowing work of art, as each track seamlessly transitions into the next. This album is a masterpiece, my favorite of theirs yet. It's also a true sequel to Helvetios, not just a similar style, but a continuing, improved theme. These guys have mastered combining fold and metal with no borders in between. The songs and interludes share the story and come as a Metal Opera, that I would love to see.

Right on schedule comes the latest from prolific Swiss folk-melodic-death metal octet Eluvetie. By now they have established their sound and style which keeps both progressing and staying true to its roots; so don't expect any major surprises. You can expect though an excellent album.

One of my complaints about their last two efforts, Everything Remains... and Helvetios, was the unnecessary polished sound which isn't befitting of Elu's music. They fixed it somewhat in Origins. Guitars get a better, rougher sound and a more predominant mix, as well as a lower tuning. I still would like the snare drum to have a more primal sound. Here it's punchy, short but artificial, cymbals still aren't particularly noticeable. Folk instruments are fine. I guess they have a bass player, not that you would be able to hear him, and that's unfortunately standard in death metal for some reason and no one dares to break the mold.

Most of the 16 songs (including intro, outro, and 2 intermezzos) will sound familiar to the Elu fan. All songs have the now-standard for Elu rhythm guitars, with melodies provided mostly by flutes and violin, and include some sound effect or other. I hope the predominance of flutes will give Pade more to do during concerts. Bag pipes are still unfortunately too rare, and it's a shame. Here are some observations for each song,

The Nameless- interesting guitar work during the first half, during the second half it becomes standard strum/mute/strum/mute. Fast blast beats sound a bit out of place, but I'm sure will be great live.

From Darkness- nice folk melody then standard guitars plus blast beats. Things improve guitar-wise during the cool violin solo.

Celtos- more folk, lots of female vocals, memorable vocals/chorus.
