Former band members


The Samans (Simplified Chinese: 萨满) is an Chinese Industrial Metal/Folk Metal band formed in 2006. All five current members are from Manchuria and Inner Mongolia where shamanic activities are important in people’s daily life. However, the band refused to use the common English form Shaman because native Tungusic speakers don’t pronounce it that way. The debut EP Weltreich was released on 24th Oct 2009.[1]
