Dear friends! We proudly present the long awaited second MORTON album "Horror of Daniel Wagner"! From the bottom of our hearts we thank everyone who's been waiting for it all these years.
"Horror of Daniel Wagner" is a very special album for us. We started working on it in 2013, and now, in 2022, it feels like an entirely different era... Since then, we've gone through a lot. If this album was a magic spell, we're pretty sure it would be a powerful one, with all the negative energy it managed to absorb only to transform it into the most pure and healing force: music.
The album consists of two parts: "Sinful Heart" and "Grand Awakening". The opposing parts of the spectrum, the darkness and the light, the riddle and the answer, the disease and the healing. Being a concept album, "Horror of Daniel Wagner" still leaves enough room for imagination, as most of the songs tell their separate, self-dependent stories.
Travelling all the way through the purgatory into forgiveness, the protagonist goes through rebirth to live many new, better lives and eventually witness the Grand Awakening of humanity. We believe that every story should end well. Let the bad things pass. After all, it's always darkest before the dawn.
P.S. At the current times it is almost impossible for us to print CD's and ship them, so we're not planning a physical release in the nearest future. However, you can help us by sharing our music and buying it digitally.

MORTON releases a new song! "Promiseland" is yet another single from the upcoming and long awaited second full length album. A true road song, telling a stormchaser's story: Road is life. Freedom is the key. Only facing our fears we can grow stronger and reach our aims.
So turn the key, get on the freeway and play it loud!

Dear friends! After almost two years of silence, we present you a new MORTON song, "Arrival". It won't be included on any album - it is truly a single. "Arrival" is a song about the never-ending journey called life, on which we sometimes feel homesick. About getting lost and then returning - returning to the true and good things we once knew and then forgot. "Arrival" is a song about us.

We’re proud to present the new MORTON music video for the title track of the new album: “Horror of Daniel Wagner”. The most musically complex and conceptual song of all our repertoire, this 8-minute composition tells a story of a man lost in the darkest corners of his mind. Will the protagonist find salvation, or is he doomed to ramble through his nightmare forever, experiencing each of its episodes over and over again? Let’s find out.
Now it’s a matter of days! We're about to release the new MORTON music video. One of our most conceptual, complex and heavy songs will be revealed on September 6, 2018. The direct forerunner of the new album, this song bears its name: “Horror of Daniel Wagner”. We can’t wait to present our new creation!
MORTON launches the new web-site! Updated info, new music, and very soon - online shop, where you’ll be able to buy all our music and merch. We welcome you to morton.band!
