About FrijgardFrijgard is a Metal band from Fricktal, Switzerland, which was founded in early 2009. 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 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 followed by some concerts in Switzerland and Germany aswell as the first gig at a festival.
In 2014 the band finished a new full length album called “Bellum Aeternum Est” which deals with several wars of the last century.
Frijgard’s sound is constantly evolving and was getting more and more melodic and heavy over the last few years. By the end of 2017 founding member Timo left the band and their long-time friend Alex was introduced as a new Frijgard guitarist. At the same time the band changed their two main vocal setup to one lead voice done by bassist Sandro.
At the moment Frijgard are preparing for new live gigs with the new line-up and are writing new songs for their third album.
Frijgard has absolutely no interest in political themes. The lyrics are inspired by historical events, nature, paganism (early songs) and fantasy. The Band refuses involvement in political extremism - be it right or left.
