Band of the day 🤘🏿 🤘🏿 🤘🏿
Kampfar is a black metal band from Fredrikstad, Norway. Tha band formed in 1994".
According to their singer, Dolk, their name is an ancient Norse battle cry which means Odin or Wotan.
The music of Kampfar can be described as Black Metal inspired by Norwegian folklore and nature.
Tha bands first full length album "Mellom Skogkledde Aaser" released in 1997. Although the album leaned heavily on folk influences, it still espoused Black Metal finesse.
"Fra Underverdenen" (1999), being darker and more emotional than its predecessors, saw Kampfar move away from some of the folk aspects and concentrate more on classical music. The result, however, was still very deeply rooted in the Black Metal genre.
Following the release of Fra Underverdenen, Kampfar was put on hold.
In 2003, Kampfar focused on writing new material and finally accepted one of the numerous offers to play live.
Hiatus ended with "Kvass" released in 2006.
Kampfar once again remained true to their primordial style delivering raw Pagan Folklore Metal, as it is meant to be heard. Piercing riffs, driving drums, and catchy melodies shaped "Heimgang" (2008).
Heimgang proved that alongside Darkthrone and Satyricon, Kampfar, without a doubt, remains a forerunner and one of the last true originals of the scene.
"Mare" (2011) opens a new chapter in the Norwegians' band history, while delivering a true monument to black metal. Frontman Dolk and the rest of the band have achieved the difficult task of giving their sound new impulses without losing their unique style.
"Djevelmakt" was released worldwide in 2014.
"Profan" (2015). It was given Norway's 2015 Spellemann award for best achievement in the 'Metal' genre.
The bands latest studio album will be released in May 2019 called "ofidians manifest".
