Menhir started in 1995. They released a demo the year after. In the beginning the line-up had quite a lot of changes. But the founders kept true to the band and the rest became steadier over the years. In 1997 they released their First real album. And the next year they made a trip to folklore with the album “Buchonia”.
After this the band did a first disastrous attempt to record the album “Thuringia”, during which two members left the band. After this it took a very long time before the band was complete again. But after a long time they managed to finish this project. But again the band had to let go a bandmember. But since this time the band has become stable and they done many concerts and festivals since then.
