Morgarten comments on the new single: “‘Tales of My Lands’ is the starting point of the story that ‘Cry of the Lost’ is based on. It’s about the day a man realizes who he’s meant to be and that he longs for the outdoors. With the song, we want to show this man’s excitement and his dreams, his thirst for great things and for travel, and his will to be a warrior.”
In search of battles and victories, Morgarten has been touring Europe since 2005. In addition to several short European tours, Morgarten has performed at international festivals such as Occultfest (NL), Brainstorm Festival (NL), Devils Rock For An Angel (BE), Mannried Open Air (CH), Winter Armageddon (DE) and Rise Of Trolls (BE). The band was also requested to be the opening act for Finntroll during their visit to Switzerland in 2018.
Now Morgarten is back with their new album “Cry of the Lost”, which will surely not disappoint fans of folk and black metal! 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 have David Castillo (Carcass, Opeth, Leprous) do the recording. The result is a high-quality release that will please fans of bands like Ensiferum, Eluveitie and Wind Rose. Morgarten proves that they are the leading folk and black metal band from French-speaking Switzerland and with their new album, Morgarten is ready to march on the European battlefields once again!
“Cry of the Lost” will be released on June 18th on CD, limited vinyl and digital via Inner Wound Recordings.
