Music played in this episode

The Music in this episode is by Spanish Dark Medieval Pagan Folk Group 


From their website:

Trobar de Morte was born in 1999. It’s the most ambitious project of the multifaceted Lady Morte, singer and songwriter. Having played at several festivals, concerts and tours – including one big tour with Faun in 2011 – and visiting countries such as Germany, Holland, Portugal, Romania, France or Italy, the band has recently collaborated with the Celtic Orchestra of Barcelona and toured through Europe as coheadliner with The Moon And The NightSpirit to celebrate its 18th anniversary. Two tribal dancers have accompanied them in several concerts throughout the years, adding a strong visual impact to many of the songs.
