Kampfar Streaming New Song

Norwegian black metal band Kampfar has released the track "En Hymne Til Urd" ("A Hymn for Earth"), which can be heard below.

"En Hymne Til Urd" is the band's contribution to the forthcoming "One And All, Together, For Home," set to be released via Season Of Mist on May 23rd (5/27 in North America).

Regarding the new track, Kampfar commented: "Former guitarist Thomas Andreassen shaped Kampfar's sound by taking his piano roots and translating them to the guitar. The song 'Hymne,' which appeared on the only demo the band recorded, is perhaps the clearest example of his connection between classical music, old Norwegian folk music and black metal. The lyrics on the song were lifted from the Norse poem 'Voluspå.' In this reinterpretation of the song the band revisits several of the melodies from the original song while also bringing back pieces of the 'Voluspå' poem. Vocals by Ask Ty."

The "One And All, Together, For Home" compilation was assembled by Drudkh main-man Roman Sayenko, and brings together a group of renowned European metal bands to pay homage their distinct, unique heritages. Each band employs their own means to find and present their respective cultural roots to the world via song. The eight appearing artists contribute a total of 17 tracks in the form of traditional song interpretations, cover versions of folk artists, or the use of themes and melodies from their musical heritages in original compositions.

The band lineup consists of:

Primordial (Ireland)
Drudkh (Ukraine)
Ava Inferi (Portugal)
Kampfar (Norway)
Winterfylleth (England)
Häive (Finland)
Himinbjorg (France)
Mondvolland (Netherlands) More...

Hate Announces Tour Dates With Kampfar

Polish extreme metal leviathans Hate will be taking part in the Spreading the Plague MMXIV Tour that will hit Europe in March/April 2014.

The band will team up with Norway's pagan black metal horde Kampfar to bring supreme blasphemy to 16 cites. On the tour that will start on the 28th of March in Munich/Germany, you will also see U.S. avant-garde black metallers Velnias and Norwegian melodic black metal act Iskald.

Hate's front man Atf Sinner comments: "We are very much looking forward to touring Europe again and I think the combined line-up for these shows is simply killer! As we are working on new tracks right now, you may expect some brand-nu-blaspehemy played on the upcoming shows for the first time! We've been waiting for a regular tour since the tragedy happened and I believe the time has come to hit the road again at full force. We will come back rejuvenated and hungrier than ever before, so be prepared for truly riotous shows!” More...

Kampfar Vocalist To Write Book On Black Metal

Dolk, vocalist for Norwegian black metal act Kampfar, has announced that he will begin his new book looking at the history of the black metal genre. Dolk commented on the project by saying;

"This was not supposed to be revealed yet. But I decided to do so through my personal [online] profile. Even my bandmates don't know this yet. But I have now finally started my longtime plan to do/write a book. This has been an idea I had for ages now, due to all the questions I get from the 'media' about this theme/topic/period of time.

"I have been so tired, in a way, to tell parts of this story without being able to tell the whole story. So the book will be about the early years in black metal and about my side of the story of it all. This book will step on someone's toes, that's for sure. But it's my side of the story. This book is for those who are interested (and it's some sort of a soul and mind surfer for me personal). To the rest…Well, I don't give a fuck! It's all very early in the process yet. But I have decided to go all the way now.

"Anyway…This has been a long process for me and a big step to make it official. Besides my woman, you are the first ones to know this at all.

Kampfar Issues Tour Update

Kampfar has issued the following announcement about the band's upcoming European tour dates:

"European tour update: It is almost time for the European tour and befitting a year of change and turmoil we have to tell you that Jon will not be able to bring his bass bashing tricks to the stage with us. Family issues make it impossible for him to be part of the tour, and initially we were reluctant to perform without his presence, but we are lucky to have a solid replacement lined up. Endre Moe, known from Trail Of Tears, is an old friend and has been on the road with us many times before.

"The step up to bass duties is a natural one, and after a weekend of intense rehearsing we're happy to say that this solution will be a very good one. We'll see you, the Horde, on the road! This tour is for you!"

Kampfar has also been confirmed as the direct support band for Vreid's upcoming North American tour, slated to begin in late August and run through mid-September. This will be Kampfar's first time touring on North American soil, and the latest volley of dates supporting new album "Mare," released last month by Napalm Records. More...
