Kampfar To Release New Album

Napalm Records has issued the following announcement about Kampfar releasing a new full-length album:

"Kampfar's latest album 'Mare' 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. Isolated keyboard passages and sprechgesang consort with icy riffs, dark melodies, and oppressive drums. Dolk's raw vocals continue to set the pace, while giving songs like 'Bergtatt,' 'Volvevers,' and the title track such intensity that they are left with no other choice but to crawl under the skin of even the most discerning black and pagan metal fans.

"The album was produced by none other than Peter Tägtgren (Abyss Studio), who provided the songs with a piercing and very powerful sound. 'Mare' is the pagan black metal masters' best work to date and is sure to become the genre's next cult classic."

Kampfar Guitarist Leaves Band

Kampfar guitarist Thomas has posted the following statement online, announcing his departure from the band:

"After playing guitar in Kampfar for quite a few years, I have now decided to leave the band.

"I cannot even begin to sum up all the good times I've had together with my bandmates, and our close friendship will surely continue outside of the context of the band.

"I sincerely hope the guys will find another guitarist to play in the band (the riffs are not that hard to play and there are no solos, which could be seen as a plus or a minus depending on perspective.) On the stage, you'll only need to pay attention to Ask, since he knows how to keep in time. It is also best to watch out for Jon and Dolk as they are maniacs and will not stand still for a moment.

"To all the good people I've met through Kampfar. Take care and I'll see you around.

"For my brothers in the band, my love and respect as always."
