New band's line-up - Part 1
Dear fans, friends, lovers of medieval music and connoisseurs of cultural heritage,
In just over a month, our "Ars Mystica" tour starts in 2017. We will, of course, come up with a fine-tuned selection of our mystical songs and take you to another world as always.
Unfortunately we have to start this season with a bad news.
Steve the Machine and Pan Peter will leave us.
Of course you ask: why is this happening?
Touring is not always as romantic as you would imagine. If you sit for weeks on a bus - 24/7 next to each other - this also puts the best friendships on a hard trial. Yes, even here, there is a questionable scene of mutual displeasure, even mama and daddy argue with each other. Unfortunately, Pan and Steve have been hardened over the years. This has led to a growing lack of cooperation, notes have deteriorated, and the Directorate has invited us to discuss the school's achievements ...
Enough of joking. Unfortunately, the two have not been able to clear their differences and do not want to stand together on the stage anymore. You will, of course, have the opportunity to say goodbye to both at different concerts. Besides, the two are not leaving the world of stages, you know how the wheel of life turns and straight with us ... I squint waggishly at Wim ...
In any case, it was no easy decision - but it is so important to look into the future.
We wish both of them the best for their journey. The last note is not played.
Speaking of tone. We have a special musical and personal surprise for the tour.
More about this in the next days. This is 1 surprise fromg Greatness.
Corvus Corax first. It's really great. Trust me, I know Corvus Corax. It's great.
Jordon for Corvus Corax

'The art of mystic': Ars Mystica
Good news for Corvus Corax fans in July 2016: The new record named ‘Ars Mystica’ presents a selection of songs of the last 27 years themed around myths, sagas and legends. In this way it is also appropiate as soundtrack for fantasy, online-gaming and roleplay-actions. Take a journey with Corvus Corax through different cultues, to furthest playces, beyond wildest dreams ...
‘Ars Mystica’ combines the different fortes of the extraordinary musicians from Berlin. On the one hand dulcet ballades with impressive chant and charming melodies like ‘Lá í mbeltane’, ‘Ballade de Mercy’ and ‘Qui nous demaine’. These songs create a unforgettable world of dreams. On the other hand heroic tunes and hymns ‘Mille Anni Passi Sunt’, ‘Sverker’, ‘Die Klage’ and ‘Is Nomine Vacans’ (known from the soundtrack of the computer game ‚Gothic 3’) tell tales of awesome heroes with epic percussions and solemn instrumentals: Each song of ‘Ars Mystica’ takes you away into the mind of mankind and the world soul.
One big highlight and special present is the medieval version of the ‚Game of Thrones’ main theme. Corvus Corax were invited to the filming of the pilot episode for performing, so they couldn’t imagine this ‚fantasy-record’ without a tribute to ‚Game of Thrones’.
For this compilation Corvus Corax achieved support from friends and companions, who are as taken in by mystic and fantasy as the minstrels: Anke aus Siebenbürgen with vocals, Julia Lindner with her baroque viola, Werner alias Tec as ‘magician of sounds’ und Oliver s. Tyr of ‘Faun’ to play the harp.
