The main project. Everything has started from it, 10 years ago. Mostly, it's rock and folk playing with classical, electronical and other elements. For many years Percival Schuttenbach's music has been changing along with changes of musicians.

* Currently it represents the New Wave of Polish Heavy Folk -this name was created by the band itself (analogically to New Wave of Brithis Heavy Metal), although there was never the old one nor any wave of polish heavy folk (but who cares?)
* Keywords: folk, paganity, energy.
* The sub-project of Percival Schuttenbach are polish, patriotical songs in new, heavy and energical arangament.

The project is conected with historical reenacment. It evolves all the time, new ideas arise.

Till now it involves two sub-projects:

* Early mediaeval PERCIVAL- Slavs and Viking music.
The project is the result of fascination with the Early Middle Ages. Its intention is to try to reconstruct the Early Middle Ages culture, traditions, instruments and music of Slavic and Scandinavian people, mostly on the basis of the knowledge of instruments that contemporary artists have used and archaic, pagan songs.

* II world war - songs of Warsaw Uprising, partisants and other;
Traditional instruments of this time: accordion, mandoline, vocal.
