Thread Name: Songs of Corvus Corax (German Band)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Mille Anni Passi Sunt
I don't know the lyrics or translation, but I know a bit of info about the band. I'm not going to bore you

But Corvus Corax was formed in 1989 in (East) Germany. They are known for playing neo-Medieval music using authentic instruments. Their name is the Latin name for the common raven. The band often uses bagpipes as the solo instrument; their live performances attract attention with the bizarre look of the musicians being reminiscent of ancient Greek myths: half-naked, dressed in unusual clothes, wearing primitive tribal decorations, often tattooed.

They have gone through many changes, but have been together for 30 years.

They released their first album Ante Casu Peccati (1989)
