Headlining a great three-band line-up in Glasgow recently, Chrigel took some time out before Elveitie hit the stage to chat to us about the band’s last two years. Their previous visit to the city had them supporting Sabaton at the Garage and now they had sold out one venue – Audio – requiring an upgrade to the Classic Grand.
So over a couple of beers, Guinness for our Swiss friend and a Tennants for myself, we discussed the story behind some of the tracks on the new album, the approach Chrigel took to writing them and the Celtic history of the album design – and indeed of Chrigel’s tattoos! Also, how did they end up with that Honda sponsorship…?
Apologies for the background noise – that’s Skálmöld who took to the stage at about the exact time I started talking to Chrigel!
