A masterpiece of Norwegian Black Metal Art! A true classic!
KAMPFAR is one of the most brilliant bands in the whole black metal genre. They perform straightforward raging mystical black metal. This album transports you to a densely wooded forest were nihilistic black metal beast are jumping from trees and living an utter pagan lifestyle. If this description does no make sense let me elaborate, KAMPFAR has a magical feel but the music strikes right at the heart of black metal which I see as an embodiment of nihilism. Unlike other nihilistic bands like Mayhem, I find KAMPFAR much more amusing. The production is cleaner, their is a less satanic feel and more of a pagan feel, and the music is melodic. KAMPFAR even uses foreign instruments like a didgeridoo which I think blends perfectly. This album along with every KAMPFAR release is a monument to black metal.
Anyone who enjoys the pagan/forest side of black metal as opposed to the satanic imagery needs this album….
