Hamferd Signs With Metal Blade

Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the signing of up-and-coming doomsters Hamferd from the Faroe Islands. The band comments:

"We're thrilled and proud to announce that we have signed a recording agreement with Metal Blade Records! Since we started out back in 2008 we have worked closely with our local label TUTL. The cooperation has been rewarding and our ties will not be severed completely.

"However, for the upcoming album and in the future we felt it was time to work with an internationally renowned metal label to hopefully help take Hamferð to the next level as a band. We feel positive and confident about Metal Blade's setup and their commitment towards quality as the label houses many of our favorite artists and has released a ton of groundbreaking releases.

"Their legacy and dedication to metal music is vital. Our new record has been a long time coming. Needless to say, we are extremely excited to finally set it up for release!"

Hamferd will release an upcoming new album in early 2018. Stay tuned for more news coming soon. In the mean time, check out a live video of "Vrain" performed in the cathedral of Torshavn below. More...
