German Medieval Band Corvus Corax (the Common Raven) - August 26, 2018

Corvus Corax is a German band known for playing medieval music using an abundance of authentic instruments.  Their name is the scientific name for the Common Raven.  The band was formed in 1989 by Castus Rabensang, Win (Venustus) and Meister Selbfried ("Master Selfpeace").  The band often uses bagpipes as the solo instrument, their live performances attract attention with bizarre look of the musicians being reminiscent of ancient Greek myths: half-naked, dressed in unusual clothes, wearing different ancient-like decorations, often tattooed. - Discogs
