Schandmaul is a German rock/folk band. The band specializes in a genre of music often known as "Medieval-Folk Rock", as they often include instruments typically used in Medieval folk songs such as the bagpipes and shawms as parts of their rock sound. Contemporaries include Subway to Sally, In Extremo, Saltatio Mortis, Regicide and Letzte Instanz.SCHANDMAUL GENRES
Schandmaul was founded in the summer of 1998, when six musicians from Munich and the surrounding area decided to put on a concert of folks music songs. Because just doing covers was not enough, they decided to write some of their own stuff. Thus was created the first tune they wrote themselves, "Teufelsweib" (Devil Woman), which already had what was to become the typical Schandmaul sound that they've built on over the years.
