Hantaoma is made out of members of the neo-medieval bands Stille Volk, Hypocras and ex-Eviternity. The concept for this band was born in 1997. The intention was to mix metal with traditional music by using electrical instruments as well as violin, bagpipe and bouzouki. They wrote a number of songs, which were never released because of the fact the band Stille Volk became more popular. In 2004 they decide to play this Music still. The lyrics are in Occitanian, a dialect from the south of France. The lyrics are about old stories, sorcerers, Pyrenean myths and stuff from common everyday life. The music is based on metal and old traditional music from Occitania.
