For all the ELVENKING and Pagan Metal fans out there – AFM’s Italian Folk Power Metal band reveals some info about “Live Invocations”, the special live studio performance. It will be streamed on November 20th, at 8pm (CET) on the AFM Records YouTube channel, and it will be preceded by a Q&A with the band, at 7pm (CET) on the band’s social media accounts.
Here’s their official statement:
„Dear Elvenlegions, we can finally reveal more about “Live Invocations”, a special live session filmed in the studio. We have been working hard on this in the last months, finding the right unique setlist, rehearsing it and finding the perfect solution to record it and make it available to you all. We were ready to publish it, but then came the cancelation of our Nov/Dec Europen Tour, so we stopped for a while and decided that we could substitute the tour with this special live recording. It won’t be the same, but at least it’s something in these dreadful times. It will be a free streaming video, but if you want to support the band we have created a Money Box on Paypal (more info below).“

This special live event has been filmed and recorded at “The Central Recording Studios” in Crevada (TV) ITALY.
With a heavy heart, the Italian folk metal heroes ELVENKING announce today that they have to postpone their „Divination Tour”, originally planned for April 2020. Tickets for all shows stay valid!
The band states:
„It is with a sad heart that we have to announce the postponement of our upcoming “Divination Tour”. As some of you might already know, Damna, our vocalist, had to undergo surgery in order to fight his long time battle with Crohn’s Disease. It should have been quite an ordinary operation, but the situation was more complicated than expected. Everything went well, but this means that he will have to take a couple of months of total rest in order to heal and fully restore. It is sad that we have to temporarily cancel the tour but our booking agency is already re-scheduling it. The first five shows are already confirmed and more info will come later on. We really hope this won’t cause any problem to who was planning to come and see us on this tour, we know we can count on your understanding and support.“
The first five shows are already confirmed:
30.11. (SK) Bratislava – Randal Club
01.12. (AT) Graz – Explosiv
02.12. (DE) Munich – Backstage
03.12. (DE) Weinheim – Café Central
04.12. (DE) Prague – Noca Chmelnice
More live dates will be announced soon, please stay tuned and keep an eye on the offical band channels for more information.
Considering the impressive history of ELVENKING, there is no chance to deny it: The Folk Power Metal band belongs to the most important and unique bands of the scene that made its way and established itself among the leading acts of Europa when it comes to powerful metal music with Folk and Pagan influences.
In 2019, the band released their latest and tenth masterpiece: “Reader Of The Runes – Divination”. The concept album is an adventurous journey into a mystic world of runes, magic and ancient powers far away from the visible. But not only the overwhelming concept makes „Reader Of The Runes – Divination“ the maybe most epic album ELVENKING ever recorded. Musically it is definitely an album that breathes freshness while still being totally loyal to the unique sound of the band.
Italian folk/power metallers ELVENKING announce european tourdates and summer festival shows:
“2016 has been a difficult year for metalheads with many losses. “Your Heroes Are Dead” is therefore now truer than ever and is hence the motto for the 2017 European Tour of ELVENKING from Italy and Finsterforst from Germany.
Accompanied by uprising German metal acts Firtan and Evertale they promise to make each night an unforgettable one!
The Power/Folk Metal legends ELVENKING from Italy will headline these memorable nights with unforgettable performances.
