Tanzwut [ˈtantsvuːt] is a German NDH-metal and Mittelalter rock band composed of members from the folk band Corvus Corax. Their name is the German term for "dancing mania", but is directly translated with "dance rage". Tanzwut are known for their heavy use of bagpipes, an unusual instrument for a metal band. The group has achieved international success, filling concert halls as far away from their home country as Mexico. The band's recent releases have been gravitating towards a more industrial metal approach, incorporating the use of more down-tuned guitars, harsher vocals and darker atmospheres.
Tanzwut's live performances have a medieval theme, expressed through their stages, costumes and choreography.
