in extremo

If only every battle between people was as peaceful as “Sangerkrieg” (singerswar) by In Extremo. The lyrics of this album by this German band ties the history to the present. Tales of Bardgames, with singers battling accompanied by bagpipes. This band makes rock not metal. But there’s so much folk and medieval elements in their music….
The band has a long impressive history, with a large number of albums, but also a lot of festivals. Almost all big festivals have had In Extremo on their list: Roskilde, Rock am Ring, Wacken Open Air.
In 2015 they celebrate their 20th anniversary with an special festival and lots of more nice stuff for the fans.
