Impius Mundi - Medieval Rock Music

Baptism by fire – on stage and on three CD’s

In 2006 seven musicians from the County Hoya committed themselves to
medieval music and founded the band IMPIUS MUNDI. They do not simply cover
medieval songs but interpret typical sounds and feelings of the Middle Ages in a
very personal way.
:: Biografie
The name IMPIUS MUNDI means ‘godless world’ in Latin and the songs deal with love, lust for life or feasting as well as with slaughter, the Black Death or a conversation with death – i.e. everyday experiences and emotions in the Middle Ages. Some songs were arranged on the basis of traditional medieval pieces or are new interpretations of traditional songs. Most songs are new compositions, especially those on the second CD that was released in April 2013. The third CD from 2015 (Decem), published on the occasion of the 10. year of the band history, got excellent national and international reviews in the music press (all CDs available from Amazon, iTunes, etc.).

For the last few years IMPIUS MUNDI have toured the north of Germany and withstood their baptism of fire. In their excellent life performances the musicians are dressed in medieval clothes. So they have impressed lot of fans on small stages as well as on the world biggest Metal Open Air, the Wacken Open Air in 2013, 2014 and 2015
