Saltatio Mortis - Das Zweite Gesicht
After the seven had hung around for a year and a day at innumerable market places and castles (both at home and abroad), were forced to wander down stony roads, and had sung many a fair maiden a ditty, they noticed that indeed another world beyond the sounds of the Middle Ages known as the Modern Times existed. All in all, as many musical directions have flowed into the band as there are band members, and each had walked a different path before joining SALTATIO MORTIS. The wide spectrum ranges from rock and folk to metal and world music.
Very quickly the bagpipe here or the bagpipe there was exchanged for an electric guitar or a keyboard, and a refreshing gust of wind blew through the old melodies. It became quickly clear that the old tunes should not be simply copied with new instruments, but rather new and original songs should be brought into existence. Those who are now asking themselves what that sounds like, should first imagine a strong framework of drums, electronic beats and traditional percussion upon which keyboards and electric guitar form the basis for the old instruments such as the hurdy-gurdy, shawm and bagpipe to build upon. Finally, top this with the succinct vocals that combine the expressive poetry of days gone by and those to come.
