Old school black metal group Kampfar will release their new disc Mare on March 25, 2011, through Napalm Records, the band has revealed.
The disc follows 2008’ Heimgang. You know, your mom’s favorite record of ‘08? I dig Kampfar, because their from Norway and their name sounds like the answer to a question a fat kid might ask during the summertime. According to a press release, “the band delivered an album that sounds, looks, and feels like the very essence of Kampfar music inspired by Nordic natural beauty, folklore and myths. It is dark, cold, menacing, and yet alluring in a unique way.” Phat!
Sounds good. Tell me more — TELL ME MORE! “These Norwegians belong to the forerunners of the genre, though they cannot be compared to any one specific band. Kampfar does not place the most importance on speed, as do others, but rather on expression and content. Kampfar is a self-contained mix of raw black metal and pagan metal embossed with traditional folkloric influences. Kampfar’s music is and remains Norse pagan folklore metal, and proves that compromises are unnecessary in creating greatness.”
And Chris is tickled for this record. Napalm — hook a brotha up!
