After starting out as buskers on the streets of Karlsruhe, Saltatio Mortis have been preparing step by step to climb the Olympus of European rock.
Their studio album “Brot und Spiele”, released last summer, catapulted the eight musicians to no. 1 in the German long-play charts for the third time, while “Zirkus Zeitgeist”, its predecessor from 2015, had just been awarded a Golden Disc. Time for Saltatio Mortis to celebrate the occasion with a long-cherished dream.
With this edition of “Brot und Spiele – Klassik & Krawall”, the eight musicians have added an entirely new spice to their genre of music: the original punk rock anthem “Sie tanzt allein” was collaboratively rejigged into a moving piano ballad, while the dramatic punch of “Brunhild” was given a bombastic classical make-over by a whack of mental cinema with Hollywood flair, and the distorted punk rock guitars in the political statement “Europa” have been unplugged and acoustically reset with simple string support. “Thanks to this melodramatic approach I think the lyrics take on a completely new meaning,” adds Lasterbalk. “For the new arrangements we listened to our gut feeling. The idea was to present the tracks in a new light without robbing them of their original character. It was incredibly thrilling to watch a professional classical orchestra working and interpreting our songs. Two utterly different worlds literally came together!”
