What’s even better than #6 in Germany? That’s right: #1 at home!

New Video: “The Call Of The Mountains”!

With only two day o go until the release of #Origins, we are proud to present to you the second video for the album: “The Call Of The Mountains”!
This is a song that has a very personal connection to all of us – it is a song about the long searched-for destination at the end of an epic journey, the journey of the Celts who were to become the Helvetians: it is a song about our mystical, majestical and unparalleled alps. We shot the video in a fitting, beautiful (and sometimes vertigo-inducing) scenery, and we hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it for you!
You can watch the video today exclusively over at Metal Hammer and Decibel Magazine!

Listen To “Origins” Tomorrow!

Can’t wait to hear #Origins? You don’t have to wait until Friday: TOMORROW AT 18:00 CET we will begin uploading the songs to Each song will unlock the next one once it has received 1’000 plays, so make sure you make a mark in your calendar!

New Song Out Now: “The Call Of The Mountains”

This one’s long overdue. Another “Origins” song you say? Well, yes indeed. Finally, a song about our beautiful mountains? That, too. But also an idea we’ve considered for a number of years now: a song released not just in English and/or Gaulish, but in all four of Switzerland’s beautiful national languages! So we present to you: “The Call Of The Mountains”!
A song about the long searched for destination at the end of the epic journey of the Celts, who were to become the Helvetians – a song about our mystical and unparalleled alps.
Besides the English album version, you will find the full song in Swiss German, French, Italian and of course Romansh both on Nuclear Blast’s mailorder edition and on iTunes,
where you will of course be able to get them separately, too. For now, we’ve created a multi-lingual track video for you:

We can’t wait to hear how you like it!

TV Special Event Update

An Update regarding the special event on Wednesday: to make sure it’s worth making your way to Winterthur, we decided to include a little “Origins” showcase. From 19:00 we’ll present four of the new songs live! And who knows, there might be some exclusive get-in music as well… Right after the filming for the tv-crew will take place, and with it the world premiere of our version of Edvard Grieg’s “In The Hall Of The Mountain King”!

The event will not take place from 18:00 to 20:30 – leaving enough time for the soccer fans among you who don’t want to miss that day’s world cup game.
