Norwegian old-school black metallers KAMPFAR are putting the finishing touches on the material for the follow-up to 2008's "Heimgang" album. The band will soon enter Abyss studios in Pärlby, outside Ludvika, Sweden with producer Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN) to begin recording the CD for a spring 2011 release."Heimgang" (said to be "the connection between the underworld and our own") came out in September 2008 via Napalm Records. A press release reads: "Refusing to follow in the footsteps of others before or after them, 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. 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." Check out audio samples on the band's MySpace page.
