Does anybody here listen to Medieval Rock, too? What are your favourite bands?
I don't know of any member of any medieval rock band, which doesn't at least play two instruments or plays an instrument and sings. A lot of them can play a whole bunch of instruments. I always find this impressive. I will post videos of seven of my favourite bands (live, because there they are at their). If anybody is interested in one of the bands or other bands, I could post more videos.

Subway to Sally are great. In Extremo and Schandmaul have great moments, others are mostly too mellow to me.

I like and listen to folk metal. Tanzwut also have such songs.

Cool thread :)

I'd not come across Folk Metal until a few months ago when I did the sound for these guys. Full-on metal plus a hurdy-gurdy, a bodhran, a violin, some kind of pipe/whistle and god knows what else. Iirc there was a bagpipe in there too :) I loved it and it's always fun in this game to see something a bit different.

Interesting...sounds to me like a weird cross between Lordi and Nightwish. :)

I think Tanzwut is more a NDH-band than a medieval rock band. Sure they have an album or two which are medieval rock, but mostly they are NDH. They started as a side project of the medieval rock band Corvus corax and that resulted of course in some of the members being in both bands and the use of certain instruments not common in NDH.

I think I heard a song of them once, they are good. I have to look more into them. Now I know their name, so thank you.
