Everything Remains (As It Never Was) is the fourth full-length album by the Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie. The album was produced by Colin Richardson,[5] and released on February 19, 2010 through Nuclear Blast.[6]

The album spawned one single, Thousandfold, which has gained over 7,500,000 views on YouTube.


Unlike Eluveitie's previous release Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion which was primarily a folk rock/acoustic folk album, Everything Remains returns to the bands roots and is a straight folk metal album.


Everything Remains generally received highly positive reviews. Pascal Stieler, writing for Metal1.info wrote that Everything Ends was "in all matters outstanding, varied album that simply has no weaknesses" and gave the album 9/10. Metal.de also gave the album 9/10.
