KAMPFAR To Spend 2010 Writing And Recording New Album

Norwegian old-school black metallers KAMPFAR have issued the following update:

"2010 will be a KAMPFAR year in the name of making music. We will use a big share of the year finishing the next album and finally enter studio! We will do a very limited amount of festival appearances, and that's it. The fist festival booked for 2010 is the mighty French Hellfest open air [in June in Clisson, France]. This will be our only show in France, and most probably the only show in western Europe 2010. Be sure to visit, as we will not save anything on these shows! Expect INFERNO!!!"

KAMPFAR released its latest album, "Heimgang" (said to be "the connection between the underworld and our own"), in September 2008 via Napalm Records.

Check out audio samples on the band's MySpace page.

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."
