Biography

Thüringen, Germany (1995 – present)

There are at least 2 bands using the name Menhir:

1. A German pagan/black metal band
2. A Dutch stoner rock band

1.) Menhir is a pagan/black metal band from Thüringen, Germany and was formed in 1995 by Heiko, Manuela and Fix. The band’s name is a term from the Celtic meaning “long stone”. Hence, the Celtic / Germanic ancestors of the band members are thematically their focus. Menhir’s lyrics usually shows this influence since they dive into the linguistic world of the Germans using the ancient language harmonized with their songs.

→ The current line-up of the band is:
Heiko - Guitar, Vocals
Fix - Guitar, Vocals (Drums until “Buchonia”)
Christian - Keyboards
Fritze - Bass
Erwin - Drums

Some members of Menhir are also in Odroerir.

2.) Around the corner of Queens Of The Stone Age and next to the village of Asterix live the three-piece that is Menhir. It’s a well-picked name for a band that is often described to be ‘as solid as a rock’. Adjectives like ‘heavy, big-ass and overwhelming’ are also often used. And it’s no wonder, the three lads from Groningen are specialised in testing the ground work of houses and buildings alike, thanks to the use of two bass players and one drummer. Formed in 2012 they play a brutal mix of southern and stoner rock.
