Versions of well-known traditional\/medieval ballads make up the main part of their repertoire, though over the years the band has also begun to write some original material using the German language. The traditional songs are sung in a variety of languages, including (but not limited to) Spanish, English, Norwegian, Swedish, Icelandic, Irish, French, Hebrew, Latin and Old German.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/10959_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"1477","name":"Passenger","bio":"The brainchild of 26-year-old Brighton born singer\/songwriter Mike Rosenberg, Passenger is redefining the troubadour for the 21st century. Formerly a five-piece band, Passenger has now pared back to basics, quite literally bringing music to the streets on a series of lengthy busking journeys across Australia, America and the United Kingdom. A classic journeyman musician, cut from the same mould as Van Morrison, Neil Young and John Prine, Passenger has the unique ability to move from the humorous to heartbreaking with every song. After a year spent crisscrossing the UK and US with his debut album Wicked Man\u00e2\u20ac\u2122s Rest, Passenger\u00e2\u20ac\u2122s markedly stripped down and soulful second album Wide Eyes Blind Love was brought to the public as it was created: on the road. Setting up on street corners across the UK and Australia, Passenger halted passers by in their hundreds; all connecting to the mellifluous tones and powerfully hewn lyrics emanating from this lone figure and his guitar. This is music as Passenger means it to be, unvarnished and honest, just pure talent and powerful tunes that tap straight into the heart of the crowd.Struck by the dynamic freedom of the troubadour life, Passenger developed the grass roots method of Wide Eyes Blind Love into the germ of a new album. Impressively and entirely self funded through busking income, Passenger set about recording a series of collaborations with musical friends met along the way. Flight Of The Crow is the remarkable result of Passenger\u00e2\u20ac\u2122s intrepid journey, with Australian artists Lior, Josh Pyke, Katie Noonan, Boy & Bear, Kate Miller Heidke, Philadelphia Grand Jury, Brian Campeau and Elana Stone, Matt Corby, Jess Chalker and Dead Letter Chorus all lending their voices to this serendipitous creative venture. Flight Of The Crow was recorded in Sydney\u00e2\u20ac\u2122s famous BJB studios over February and March of 2010, and co-produced by Berkfinger (AKA Simon Berkleman from Philadelphia Grand Jury).As a second album born of the road, Flight Of The Crow speaks to the compelling quality of Passenger\u00e2\u20ac\u2122s music and the striking sincerity of his lyrics, both of which are matched by his dedication to this grass roots style of craftsmanship and collaboration. How utterly remarkable that a lone musician can travel the globe, and literally from the street, connect with some of Australia\u00e2\u20ac\u2122s finest musical talents to produce a self-funded album. This is the stuff of legend, with Passenger clearly evoking the humble, hardworking creativity of the troubadours of old.

Contemporary groups in the same vein include Subway to Sally, In Extremo, Saltatio Mortis, Regicide, and Letzte Instanz.Schandmaul was founded in the summer of 1998, when six musicians from Munich and the surrounding area decided to put on a concert of folksongs. Because just doing covers was not enough, they decided to write some of their own stuff. Thus was created the first tune they wrote themselves, \"Teufelsweib\" (Devil Woman), which already had what was to become the typical Schandmaul sound that they've built on over the years.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/10952_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"10962","name":"Subway to Sally","bio":"Subway to Sally was founded in Potsdam, Germany, in the early 1990s. It is a rock band with clear folk and medieval influences, later also with gothic and metal elements added to the mix. With their continuous inclusion of oriental sounds and elements of classical music (noted for instance by the use of the arrangements of the backup vocals) and the use of instruments less frequently seen in metal bands, such as bagpipes, shawm, violin, hurdy-gurdy and lute, the band has acquired the label of medieval metal. They have released 8 studio albums, two live album and two live DVD\u00b4s. Their fame is mainly in the German-speaking countries, having played only a handful of concerts outside of their \"turf\".BiographySubway to Sally was an idea that was a long time coming. The very first concert given in the name was held in September of 1990. The band then consisted of Ingo Hampf, Bodenski, Simon, Coni (trumpet) and Guido (drums). Their first appearance onstage in the constellation with which they later recorded their first album (Album 1994), was given in the Potsdamer \"Stube\" in January 1992. The group had decided on needing a fiddle to complete the sound, something which brought Frau Schmitt (Silke Volland) to the band, who in turn introduced Eric Fish (Eric Hecht) on the bagpipes.In the early years, Subway to Sally played Irish \/ Scottish inspired folk rock, as reflected by the tracklist of their first album, being the only album where the majority of songs are in English (for this they hired a friend to write lyrics in English). The group then decided they wanted to keep their lyrics in German, thus being a part of the first wave of bands to do so after the Berlin wall broke down. Their second album, released in 1995 and aptly named MCMXCV, saw a mixture of biblically inspired lyrics and what is often referred to as \"medieval\" music, thus placing the label \"medieval metal\" firmly onto their foreheads. It is a label that they still are being confronted with, though the music can hardly be described as such and though the band repeatedly tries to deny this. Three major changes can be noted with the release of MCMXCV: Firstly, the appearing of the self-written German lyrics penned by Bodenski, secondly, Eric Fish moved up from being the piper to being the frontman and main singer. Thirdly, the focus of the music was no longer on folklore with the occasional self-composed song tossed in for measure, but was turned around to exactly the opposite, with the two translated folk songs \"Kr\u00e4henfra\u00df\" (\"Twa Corbies\") and \"Carrickfergus\" adapted to fit the band's style.Between 1994 and 1997 the band rapidly released four albums and toured Germany to exhaustion, with an average of around 100 concerts (take or give a few) per year. Drummer T.W. left the band in 1997, after completing the recordings of \"Foppt den D\u00e4mon\", being replaced by David P\u00e4tsch for the tour and the following albums. \"Der Sturm\" was the first chart entry of the band, but they were quite consequently ignored by the radio and music television channels. With \"Hochzeit\" the band broke their habits and spent more time on producing the album, leading to a more polished and worked-through sound. This payed off with another chart placement: the album made it to #19 in the official charts. The sound of \"Hochzeit\" is very much picked up by the next studio album, \"Herzblut\", though thematically moving in a different direction. Where \"Hochzeit\" is darker and ends on the note of \"M\u00fcde\" (\"Tired\") \"Ach, ich bin von dieser Welt so m\u00fcd'\" (\"Oh, I am so tired of this world\"), \"Herzblut\" starts off with the energetic \"die Schlacht\" (\"the battle\"), declearing that \"Ich gewinne diese Schlacht\" (\"I win this battle\").In 2003 the album \"Engelskrieger\" was released. In preparation of the release, the band made the lyrics available on their home page, leading to wild discussions and accusations of \"selling out\". The sound of the record, breaking clearly with their previous works, did nothing to silence those accusations. Subway to Sally had grown up, met up with the real world and made a deeply disturbing record, dealing with modern issues on modern terms. The lyrics were no longer veiled and styled old-fashionedly, but instead painfully direct, as was the music, delivered with more brute and force. \"Wenn Engel hassen\" (\"When angels hate\") from \"Herzblut\" can be said to explore the same terrain that \"Geist des Kriegers\" (\"Spirit of the warrior\") does, dealing with an individual running amok, though the latter is firmly lodged in the \"post 9\/11\"-world. Several band members have indeed emphasised the impact of the attacks of the Twin Towers and the following political events as inspirational source for the album. Other songs deal with incest, euthanasia, leaders who mis-lead their people and the general fall and corruption of our western society. \"Engelskrieger\" entered the German charts at #9, and the band once more toured extensively. A live DVD was filmed in the Columbiahalle in Berlin on the first leg of the tour, leading to the release of a double DVD in the autumn of 2003. In April 2004 Subway to Sally changed label, leaving Universal (Motor) for the smaller metal-label Nuclear Blast.The very last concert of 2004, the all-yearly concert in Lindenpark (Potsdam) on the 30\/12, was also the last concert of drummer David P\u00e4tsch, who left the band to pursue another musical direction with the Blue Man Group in Berlin. The band then spent half a year looking for a replacement, finally deciding on Simon Michael Schmitt to replace David. (On a side-note this has lead to a great deal of confusion, as there are now 2 Simons, 3 Michaels and 2 Schmitts in the band.) The recording of the new album was already finished by the time \"tiny Simon\" joined the band.Despite being very pleased with the outcome of \"Engelskrieger\", the band made no secret of it being a one-off and of returning to the more conventional \"Sally-sound\" with the next studio recording. \"Nord Nord Ost\" was originally planned to be released in 2004, but was delayed until fall 2005, due to the extensiveness of the production. Though the band have previously made use of musicians from outside the band, they now did so on a bigger scale, involving the Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg to create a wider and more orchestral sound. The album debuted at #5 in the official charts, the highest chart placement the band has seen to date.In 2006 they released an acoustic CD\/DVD reminiscent of their pre-Hochzeit sound called Nackt (\"Naked\"), followed by another album in the vein of Nord Nord Ost, titled Bastard, in Fall 2007.Side projectsSeveral of the band members have side- or solo-projects going. Wanting to \"return to his roots\" as a musician, Eric Fish started touring on his own in 1999. This project has now grown up to become a band in its own right, and two CDs have been released; \"Auge in Auge\" and \"Zwilling\". Eric is also involved in a hitherto online-only project called Wei\u00df and often appears as a guest musician on records of other bands (for instance with Letzte Instanz and Fiddler's Green). Bodenski has published a book of poems, called \"Inniglich\", which draws heavily on his lyrics for Subway to Sally, but also contains other works and non-published Sally songs. Little Simon also plays in the powermetal band Silverlane. Frau Schmitt used to be a member of the somewhat \"folkyjazzy\" ensemble 17 Hippies.Discography * Album 1994 (1994, label: Costbar) * MCMXCV (1995) (1995, label: Stars in the dark) * Foppt den D\u00e4mon!

Folk instruments such as flutes, hurdy-gurdy and shawm will find their place and their merits as well as hard electric guitars and drums. Even bagpipes sounding tones and a successful production rounds out the Silberling a true listening pleasure.The five musicians mastered both melodies that the wake-up call for movement, as well as those that invite you to dream. This already points to stimulate variety and this is offered not only on the album, but also within individual songs.Entry into the work makes \"on the run.\" Fast played violins, which show duel with later onset, harder guitars in the first few minutes of the game that Ignis Fatuu white rock and has a knack for melodies that stay in your head. A break and a variety of tempo changes an inclusive guitar solo makes the song interesting.\"North Wind\" - one of several highlights on the album - just starts rocking and vocally reminiscent of the B\u00f6hse Onkelz. An instrumental solo in the middle of the song is able to persuade and demonstrates the playfulness of the band.Ballad is the way of \"Your Star\". Understated drums, violins and acoustic guitar introduce the song that starts sounding for the first time female vocals. The delicate, almost fragile-sounding voice harmonizes excellently with the charismatic male voice.Although the track increases in hardness - especially the middle part of this is that contrasts with quickness and change of tempo ballad to the real character - he never loses its emotional appeal.After the intro with flute incipient \"Narrenweib\" has died away again faster and no less melodic, it's back to rocking. \"Longing\" is characterized by rifflastigen guitars, while the female vocals shine in both the two-part singing and in the 'Solo'.With the \"illusion\" to create Ignis Fatuu almost give the listener a very kind, leads one hand, the bagpipe intro but mentally in the Scottish Highlands. But this illusion does not stop long, but it is harder and faster. In the verses we remain vocally here almost on a pitch.Once a completely different one enters \"Dragon Rider\". With drums and bagpipes one sets the rhythm and the vocals give the song with great melody seduction. Equally unusual is the quiet end of decaying, which is also a good transition to the next ballad is lonely. \" This is quite something. Play initially only flutes and acoustic guitars, it is the male singer's voice in the foreground. The track undergoes increase in the duet part. Live will probably come here a few lighters are used, so the title of the album \"There Be Light will be heard\" quasi. Through a varied composition of the song is about his long-winded and not 6 minutes. Certainly there are powerful ballads, but here is very much potential there.\"Spring dance\" has the typical characteristics of a good rock songs on the Middle Ages and \"Fiddler,\" which stands in for nothing. While not innovative, but quite ohrwurmtauglich and especially by Alexander's voice still very own.Highlights for me then form again the last three songs. \"Guard Time\" Therefore, since it is extremely rousing and catchy, \"spell\" on the grounds that it once again knows hardship and emotion and can therefore combine the title of the song come alive, and \"The Night\" is because he simply no longer goes out of the ear. This song alone, I could run it on repeat, without me sick to hear them.Danse Macabre has managed to once again have a band under contract, which can inspire the listener. Fans of medieval coat here should necessarily purely hear. What can I say! Not just purely listening to buy! It is worthwhile and will not be boring.Discography: 2007: 5-Track-Promo-CD (own production)2009: Es werde Licht (Danse Macabre Records)2011: Neue Ufer (Trollzorn)","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/105724_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}
