The Band

Bandbiography

Heavy guitar sounds now meet medieval instruments, leading to an exciting mixture of punching and metal typical riffs with catchy bagpipe lines supported by folky accordion melodies.

Epic synthesizer sounds complete the atmosphere while carrying the songs with choirs and string sections to underline the intended emotions in the songs. Diversely structured pieces tell the tales from ancient days and heroic battles, or invite to party along and drink, leading to a unique mix of Epic- and Folk-Metal.

Finally, in 2016, the first original EP “Mandragora erwacht”, presenting own songs, was released. The Band was awarded prices for their new record at the “German Rock- and Pop-Awards” for “German Hard Rock”, scoring first place in the categories “Best Metal-Band” and “Best-Metal-Song” with their new EP.

In early 2019, the recordings for the first full-length original record were performed with Mario Dahmen in the LIQUID AETHER AUDIO studios (e.g. Roadrunner and Locomotive Records) and since then the new album was worked on eagerly.
  “Der Vagabund” was released in spring 2020 at the “Rock am Wehr – Winterwehr” Festival in Jena. The full length album was received very well by fans and press:

Hier fiel es mir vergleichsweise leicht, eine Wertung zu geben, denn es gibt eine saubere Produktion, Abwechslung und Atmosphäre, das in Union bedeutet kurz und knapp 10 von 10 Punkte.

(Metalzone)

„[…] Durch die Vermengung von Symphonic-/Epic-/Bombast-Metal-Elementen mit den üblichen Bausteinen des Mittelalter-Rock bekommt der vertraut tönende Sound der deutschen Band eine frische Note […]“

(Legacy, Issue #122)

Unfortunately, the associated promotion tour was canceled due to the pandemic, but the band was not idle during this time. New material was written, and in the summer of 2021, the second album “Rex Silvarum” was recorded and produced in collaboration with Dom R. Crey (NOTHGARD/EQUILIBRIUM) at Splendid Wave Studios.

Despite ongoing pandemic-related contact restrictions, MANDRAGORA THURINGIA managed to play several festivals in 2021, including the online Sternenklang Festival 2021, the Mahlstrom Open Air 2021, and the Thorshammer Festival 2021.

The year 2022 was marked by the return of festivals, and so MANDRAGORA THURINGIA were featured on the bill at scene-specific festivals (e.g., Mead and Greed Festival, Hörnerfest, Helmfest).

In June 2022, a suitable partner for the release of the upcoming album “Rex Silvarum” was found with MDD-Records, and it was released on 4 November 2022. Once again, the feedback was overwhelmingly positive:

„Kurzum, hier sollte wirklich jedes Fanherz auf die vollen kommen, sofern nur einem nur einer der gesamten genannten Bandnamen zusagt. (In Extremo, Alestorm, Slartibartfass, Equilibrium, Varg, Wolfchant)“

(Zephyrs Odem – 9/10)

„The album gives the typical folk metal fan everything they desire for the music, such as driving guitar accompanied by folk instruments like bagpipes and accordion.“

(folk-metal.nl – 8/10)

The as-yet-untitled follow-up album to “Rex Silvarum” is currently in the writing process. The collaboration with Dom R. Crey and Splendid Wave Studio will continue for this album.
