Current issues, modern rock music and the trick of constantly reinventing oneself and yet remaining true to oneself. Effortlessly the eight passion musicians of Saltatio Mortis seem to master this balancing act on their new album Brot und Spiele. Saltatio Mortis have not only updated the genre of medieval rock, they are also guarantors for rousing live shows. So it is no wonder that the playful musicians are tempted to come back on stage, after months they spent in the studio. They are supported by the Hungarian band Firkin.
