How many bands you know, whose aside projects became the second breath of the main cast of the group, in the same time reflecting simply different music course? The parallel project of musicians from worldwide known industrial band Tanzwut, Corvus Corax, is the being of such a genuine and enormous act. Playing medieval instrumental music with strong influence of ethnic atmosphere and folk, they created a new wave in reception of the whole essence of music. Original mix of styles and different vibes make their music very unlike and in the same time rather attractive. It became more interesting, when you know, that following this music line, musicians are also holding the title of the flagmans on the industrial scene. Moreover, all aside projects of other bands are always the same style and conception as their "parents", but this event is merely incredible. And in the sight of the forthcoming Corvus Corax's new album, I think an immense army of their fans is eager to know more about what they can expect from the new creation of this gifted German minnesingers. Anyway, this interview will be presented in an unusual form of a question-form. And though, I think, it's time to begin… Hi all over there! I think, it will be interesting for you to answer some questions in such an abnormal shape. And so far comes the first question, if you like, the prelude - who was the author of the idea of making Tanzwut (as I know, Corvus Corax was a foundation)?

Corvus Corax: The author was our own insanity. After years of acting with Corvus Corax, we started to combine our style with the sound of modern music, like industrial or hard techno. But we noticed that it would be better to found a new project for that cause otherwise we would destroy the basic idea of Corvus Corax to play real acoustic (we are the loudest!!!:) medieval music. And it?s more fun for us to switch from one project to the other with a complete different attitude. What had pushed you to make this step?

Corvus Corax: We have so many ideas - we would explode without doing that! That's alright. :) And now the question-form:

1. Name, surname - Drescher, Harmann der.
