CORVUS CORAX – THE KINGS OF THE MINSTRELS
After years of medieval music, since 1989, they look back on a vast number of records and various projects. With mystical and myth-enshrouded albums likes “Mille Anni Passi Sunt” they awake old gods and legends, with records like “Sverker” and “Gimlie” they review the Celtic and Nordic traditions and present the Viking culture in modern times.
Covus Corax inspire around the world
None other than Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer („Gladiator“, „Pirates of the Caribbean“) approached the kings of the minstrels and initiated Corvus Corax’ writing of the music for „Ironclad“. In the BBC documentary „The Crusades“, presented by Monty Python-legend Terry Jones, their bagpipes and drums are to be heard as well as in the computer game „Dragon Age“. Finally the producers of the highest-grossing TV-series “Game of Thrones” were impressed and invited them to play live for the series on set.
Next to their mainly action they realized different special projects. Tears they created their compositions based on the Carmina Burana – „Cantus Buranus“. A German highlight was the live rehearsal of “The Dwarves” – German Fantasy novels written by Markus Heitz – with Johannes Steck. In 2017 they composed the worlds first “Fantastical” named “The Course of the Dragon”. Corvus Corax combine ancient music with modern fantasy, they experiment with different cultural sounds and crazy instruments.
