It’s been almost a month since our last installment of this editorial where I suggested Limbonic Art to fans of (early) Dimmu Borgir. I’ve thought long and hard about to whom I could compare to whom this time around, and ultimately decided to descend the abyss a little further to suggest a band to those of you who enjoyed Limbonic Art, but wanted something perhaps even more obscure. If this is you, give the band Morgart an honest listen.
Morgart is a Swiss band that formed in 1995 under the name Forsth, later changing their name in 1999 to what they are known as now. The track above is from the band’s first album released under their name Morgart in 2005, ‘Die Schlacht (In Acht Sinfonien)’. The album is a concept based on a diary the band found of a monk written in 1315, recalling his experience with the famous Swiss battle of Morgarten. The album is broken down into eight symphonies or ‘sinfonie’ with the names of the tracks distinguished by a number and in some cases, a few words. The songs are extremely synth heavy, aptly titled as symphonies, with light vocals and, at times, almost indistinguishable guitars.
Have a listen to the track ‘Sinfonie 5- In A-Dur’ by pressing play above and leave us your thoughts in the comment section
