German Medieval rockband Saltatio Mortis recorded three hours at one of the nice MPS festivals. The material will be released on a DVD called ‘Provocatio’ on 13 December. This DVD can be pre-order from now on.
All For One! This year 20 years ago, the MPS started in Borken, Germany. Now, 20 years later, this spectacle has grown to a big event in a lot of places throughout whole Germany during the summer-season and a few events during the winter. During this weekends a large area is filled with ‘Heerlager’ (a beautiful German word meaning encampments). A a lot of places where knights and other warriors can display their skills. Juggler’s performing all kind of acts, with fire, swords etc.
By: Nick Score: 7/10 Release: 16-8-2013 Label: Napalm Records Saltatio Mortis is a band which is always busy. Not so long ago the single ‘Wachstum über alles’ was released, and now the new full-length is a fact. Each 2 years, Saltatio releases a new studioalbum, and ‘Das Schwarze Einmaleins’ is the 9th. You always know what to expect of Saltatio Mortis. Typical German ‘Mittelalterrock’, like we used to know from bands like Subway to Sally and In Extremo.
By: Nick Score: 8/10 Release: 12-7-2013 Label: Napalm Records Because we still need to wait a little less than two months before the release of Saltatio Mortis new album ‘Das schwarze Einmaleins’, Saltatio Mortis releases some nice stuff to keep us busy ‘till that time. As we’re used from the German band, they don’t release just something, they made it into something special. I must admit,, I was a little afraid when I played this single for the first time. 5 versions of ‘Wachstum über alles’,
By: Michel Photography: Feenstaub Entertainment 27-4-2013 Weeze, Germany After a drive to airport Weeze in Germany, you leave your car and modern life behind at the parking lot and walk into medieval times. When you enter the are, you can see the campfire burning, watch the knights, craftsmen and the beautiful ladies dressed in nice royalty dresses or in simple but just as beautiful simple civilian clothes. You hear ‘Die Streuner’ with their fiddles and lutes and smell the fresh baked bread. All your senses are drowned in medieval times. When you turn around you can see your car at … lees verder
By: Nick Score: 7/10 Release: 5-4-2013 Label: Napalm Records Saltatio Mortis can be named directly with the largest bands in the German folk-rock scene like Subway to Sally and In Extremo. Besides the regular studioalbums they release a live-album called ‘Manufactum’ from time to time. Right now it was time for part 3.
By: Michel 15 and 16 september 2012 the Medieval event MPS (Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum) was near the German/Dutch border once again in Borken. And in my opinion everybody who is a little interested in Medieval times should visit this. And because of the very nice weather, everybody else should too.
Schloss Broich 16-17 August 2012 By: Colin Photography: Feenstaub Entertainment As every year we make our journey to castle Broich, where on the innerplace the amazing Burgfolk is held. This year there was no folkmetal, so we came here for the large amount of folkrock bands, who came to show us what they’ve got.
Location: Loreley, Duitsland By: Nick Photography: Laurie Roijackers Besides the traveling series of concerts like Paganfest and Heidenfest, Rock the Nation is working on their own touring festival called ‘Metalfest’. Biggest concern of this was that there weren’t any plans for this festival to come near Holland. This changed with the coming of Metalfest Loreley, which is just a 2 hour drive from the Dutch border. A beautiful location (an amphitheatre, up in the mountains besides the Rhine), amazing weather and a great line-up with an even better sound were promising for a great festival. Like the name implies, there … lees verder
Saltatio Mortis Effenaar, Einhoven 24 November 2011 Door: Nick Donderdagavond, 24 November, was de dag dat Saltatio Mortis zou optreden in de Effenaar. Met een voorprogramma als Fejd beloofde het een mooie avond te worden. Hoewel het niet erg druk was de gehele avond, zat de sfeer er goed in en werden er twee prachtige optredens weggezet. Fejd Fejd was de band die deze avond af mocht trappen. Doordat de treinen deze avond niet meezaten, moesten we helaas het begin van deze Zweedse band missen. Gelukkig waren we wel op tijd om nog een ruim stuk van deze muziek mee … lees verder
