FEITEL was formed by four musicians who had previously worked together in the Austrian medieval music scene and decided to start a new project in 2012 to incorporate the diversity of their manifold musical backgrounds and influences:
bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy, rauschpfeiffe, bouzouki, and davul
meet keyboards, flute, rock drums, e-guitar, and e-bass.
The result is a new sound that stylistically slips across the boundaries between medieval, folk, fantasy, rock, and punk music ... a style that’s hard to peg with familiar labels.
Closely related genres: medieval rock, power folk, world music (Western European).
