Special times call for special measures: Corvus Corax, the kings of minstrels, are back in the middle of the pandemic with a spontaneous audio book project. With medieval instruments, atmospheric sound design and spoken word, they bring Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Mask of Red Death” to our ears.
Today, the Finnish version has been released, where Sami Yli-Sirniö (KREATOR, WALTARI) gives his debut as a narrator.
Connoisseurs of the history of the medieval music scene in Germany know: this story was brought to life as medieval rock by Feeling B. (one of Rammstein‘s predecessor projects) in 1993. CORVUS CORAX were also involved in the background as a source of ideas. In the past few months, almost 30 years later, the idea arose to initiate a new, pandemic-inspired version of this setting and to counter this dreary pandemic time with the bloodthirsty and brutal story of 1842.
