In the end of 1994 they recorded their first demo CD using two DAT recorders. This recording, produced during only at two weekends, served as master-tape for Martigans first Album. The album was named after the village where the bands first rehearsals took place: Stolzenbach Martigan then met cologne music-producer Rudolf Nepix who got interested in their music and encouraged them to start recording a second CD called “Ciel Ouvert”, which was released on the Label FLOH DUR in 1996. Additionally, a Maxi-CD „Simplicius“ came out in early 1997 You will find all CD’s on the website www.martigan.com – Take a look at the Fansit to !: www.martigan-progrock.com........
Several concerts and gigs followed. A highlight in Martigans history up to now was a concert as support act of the Canadian Progressive Rock Band SAGA in Cologne. Guitar-player Juergen Edlinger left the group in the mid of 1998 because he became father for the second time :-) To fill in for Juergen, Björn Bisch - Brother of the drummer Alex Bisch joined the band. He grasped the essence of Martigans music very fast and by adding his own „grain of salt“ the music became even more impulsive.
The years 1999 and 2000 were dedicated to the composition of new songs and the work on various draft recordings. In 2000 Axel Schuetze left the band - he became a father too ;-) Peter Kindler took over the bass instead and gave Martigans music an absolutely new dimension by deeper modulation ;-) Our new album „Man of the Moment“ was released in 2002. At the end of 2008 the Bassplayer Peter leaved the band in case of personal circumstances. Since begin of 2009: Out now – the new album VISION is out !!! Enjoy it !!!!
