It’s going to get hard with Corvus Corax - harder than we were used to from the kings of minstrels. We know and love them for their mighty drums, their impressive stage shows and their imposing bagpipe wall. Now the musicians from Berlin are going one step further: Their new project "ERA METALLUM" combines the epic of Corvus Corax with the force of metal and thus creates a new and unique music experience. With passionate metal guitars and skilful, progressive drums, the quick-change artists from CORVUS CORAX shape their well-known playing styles into a successful symbiosis of traditional instruments and heavy metal. A unique connection between the traditional and the dazzlingly modern was created. If the Vikings had had electric guitars, this form of metal would probably have been produced. CORVUS CORAX - ERA METALLUM creates a unique and unprecedented epic atmosphere - massive and symphonic, powerful and intoxicating.
We can get a first glimpse of it with the release of “Ragnarök”. On the cover we are greeted by Jörmungandr, the global snake, in a modern, powerful and hard-looking sight, who promises epic and unprecedented things: with the distinctive guitars by Sami Yli-Sirniö (Kreator) and the progressive metal drums recorded by Norbert Norri Drescher (Corvus Corax, former drummer with the Prog-Trash metal band Depressive Age) the imposing bagpipes and the martial chants of Castus Karsten Liehm get an uncompromising space for development. Mysticism, power and myths in a symphonic and rock hard harmony. The end of the world has never been more impressive than in the era of metal of Corvus Corax. Convince yourself!
The single Ragnarök is the powerful harbinger of the album ERA METALLUM, which will be released on September 04, 2020.
