Kampfar's show on August 7 will be something quite unique. They will play on the location of Viking and Metal festival Midgardsblot, which is on historical Viking ground in Borre, Vestfold (Norway). The concert will take place both inside the Gildehall at Midgard Viking Centre (a replica of a Feast Hall from the Viking ages), and in the surrounding nature. There will be flames, stunning surroundings and fantastic metal.
Kampfar about the concert: "We do not know what the rest of the bands will do in this online event. But we know what Kampfar will do... And it's not just another festival show done back in time! It will be as fresh and up to date as it can be in this event. We will most likely lose money too due to this event! But together with Midgardsblot we will try to present something special, Norwegian, historical and honest for you! 2020 is no time for gimmick, more than ever we feel the massive support from all of you. It's time to join forces again.
Taking their name from an ancient Norse battle cry, Kampfar employ a punishing, and at time victorious blend of icy black metal, neoclassical, and rousing Viking folk-metal. With around 25 years of existence and having grown to become one of extreme music’s premier live outfits, while releasing albums that would dominate year-end lists and even bagging a Norwegian Grammy Spellemann award for their 2015 "Profan" album, Kampfar are one of the greatest pagan metal bands out of Norway.
Their latest album "Ofidians Manifest" from 2019 was nominated for Metal Album of the Year at the Norwegian Grammy Spellemann, and was praised with top scores in reviews from Metal press all over the world.
We're looking forward to their one-of-a-kind live stream on Aug 7!
