Frijgard is a Melodic Black Metal band from Fricktal, Switzerland, which was founded in early 2009. The four founding members are Timo (Guitar, Vocals), Sandro (Bass, Vocals), Michael (Guitar) and Maxi (Drums). It was October of the same year when they released their self-produced demo CD called “Morgenrot”.
The feedback inspired them to go on and after the first few concerts (amongst others with Finntroll) they began with the song writing for their first full-length album. They decided to omit the keyboards which were very present on the demo CD. This gave a rougher touch to the new sound.
“Nebelwacht” was finally released in spring 2011 via Black Tower Productions followed by some concerts in Switzerland and Germany and the first gig at a festival. At the moment the band is preparing the production of the new album called “Bellum Aeternum Est” which will be unleashed in early 2014.
