Folk/Black Metal Band Morgarten Releases New Single & Lyric Video ‘Tales of My Lands’


The Swiss folk/black metal band Morgarten just released a lyric video for ‘Tales of My Lands’, the second single from their new album “Cry of the Lost” which will be released on June 18th on CD, limited vinyl and digital via Inner Wound Recordings.

,,’Tales of My Lands’ is the starting point of the story on which ‘Cry of the Lost’ is based”, says Pierric (guitars/vocals). ,,It’s about the day when a man realizes who he’s meant to be and that he longs for the great outdoors. With the song we want to show the excitement of this man and his dreams, his thirst for great things and for travelling, and his will to be a warrior.”

The video can be seen below.

In search of battles and victories Morgarten has been touring Europe since 2005. Besides several short European tours Morgarten appeared on international festivals, like Occultfest (NL), Brainstorm Festival (NL), Devils Rock For An Angel (BE), Mannried Open Air (CH), Winter Armageddon (DE) and Rise Of Trolls (BE). Also the band was asked as opening-act for Finntroll on their visit to Switzerland in 2018.

Morgarten now returns with their new album “Cry of the Lost”, which surely won’t leave fans of folk- and black metal disappointed! The album was mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Amon Amarth) and mastered by Tony Lindgren (Opeth, Eluveitie, Sepultura). For the drums Morgarten visited Fascination Street Studio’s to let David Castillo (Carcass, Opeth, Leprous) handle the recordings.

The result is a high quality release that will please fans of bands like Ensiferum, Eluveitie and Wind Rose. Morgarten proves to be the leading folk- and black metal band from the French speaking part of Switzerland and with their new album Morgarten is ready to march upon the European battlefields once more!
