Northern Fury has conducted an interview with vocalist Dolk of Norwegian old-school black metallers KAMPFAR when the performed in Portland, Oregon on September 7, 2011 as part of “The Black Path Of America Tour 2011” with VREID and NECRONOMICON. You can now watch the chat HERE.
“The Black Path Of America Tour 2011” marked KAMPFAR‘s very first time touring on North American soil, and the latest volley of dates supporting new album “Mare”, released this past spring by Napalm Records. The follow-up to 2008’s “Heimgang” was recorded at Abyss studios in Pärlby, outside Ludvika, Sweden with producer Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN).
According to a press release, “Mare” “opens a new chapter in the Norwegian band’s 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.”
