A folk-metal collective based out of Aschaffenburg, Germany, Minotaurus' dynamic blend of Celtic folk and power metal invokes names like Suidakra, Cruachan, Primordial, and Eluveitie.
Formed in 1994, the group utilizes the talents of multiple vocalists, and employs a large arsenal of unconventional instruments, both electric and acoustic. A pair of demos preceded the release of the band's full-length debut, Path of Burning Torches, in 1999. Two EPs, Carnyx and The Silent Cave, followed in 2001 and 2003, respectively, and in 2004 the band dropped their sophomore effort, Myth or Reality. The Lonely Dwarf arrived in 2009, followed by The Call in 2013. The group expanded to a seven-piece for the release of their fifth studio long-player, the Limb Records-issued Insolubilis. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
