This was a treat and so much fun to talk to Norri who is in the simplist terms the drummer for the german neo-medieval-meets-metal ensemble Corvus Corax!! Since 1989, Corvus Corax has contributed significantly to the development medieval music. With mystical and myth-enshrouded albums like Mille Anni Passi Sunt, Corvus Corax awakened old gods and legends, while records like Sverker and Gimlie invoke Celtic and Nordic traditions and present the Viking culture in modern times. We spoke to Norri about life during covid and learned that he has spent much of his time teaching his children since schools are closed. We spoke of commercial success and near success like being chosen for Game of Thrones theme song only for the the show to go with someone else but they found some success in video game market with games like Dragon Age. We also disscussed insperation, research, importance of staying authentic and their operatic performance of CARMINA BURANA. We also learned alot about Norri himself like when he started playin instruments, who got him into metal, growing up in Germany and how he knows Sami Yli Sirniö of the great German metal band Kreator! We really hope everyone enjoys this and thanks for listening!
