Biography

Saltatio Mortis (Latin for dance of death) is a German medieval rock band that was founded in 2000 by seven original members and initially saw itself purely as a street music band. Singer Jörg Roth (Alea der Bescheidene) and hurdy-gurdy player Gunter Kopf (Falk von Hasen-Mümmelstein) are still with the band today. The band recorded their first album Tavernakel in 2001 and found a music label in Napalm Records in 2002. With the albums Heptessenz (2003) and the rock album Erwachen (2004), Saltatio Mortis finally established themselves in the medieval scene. Des Königs Henker (2005) enters the German album charts for the first time. As the band's sound evolves more and more towards medieval rock or folk rock and the lyrics towards political engagement, the albums released gradually achieve better positions in the charts until Das Schwarze IxI finally reaches number 1 in the German album charts in 2013, as do its follow-up albums Zirkus Zeitgeist (also receives a gold record), Brot und Spiele (2018) and Für Immer Frei (2020).
