Morgarten smallIn lands with ancestral history, Morgarten was created in 2005, in the region of Neuchatel in Switzerland. The five brave warriors being part of Morgarten stood up to bring the world to their cause, starting immediately to compose, giving birth to their first songs. At the end of 2006, they considered that their weapons were ready enough to step out of their cave and received good feedback, after several gigs. Using the theme of medieval times, their metal has been described as “both melodic and warlike, transporting you into the middle of a forest at the time of knights” (Eternel.ch). Morgarten released their debut album, “Risen to Fight” in March 2015, which was very well received. An interview with the Morgarten warriors follows below.
