Swiss based folk black metal band Morgarten is proud to present you its first official music video for the song ‘Wind from the Forest’ from the album “Risen to Fight.” It was filmed during a live show at “Le Manoir Pub”, St-Maurice in Switzerland on the 8th of December. The video can be seen below.

It was 2005 and in the region of Neuchatel, Switzerland, a land rich with ancestral history, five brave warriors stood up to bring the world to their cause. Thus was born Morgarten ! The warriors immediately began to compose, giving life to their first songs. At the end of 2006, they decided that their weapons were finally ready to step out of their cave. Their metal was then described as “both melodic and warlike, transporting you into the middle of a forest at the time of knights”. Continue reading »
