Kampfar Streaming New Track "En Hymne Til Urd"

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)
