CD Reviews

A Prelude to "Fra Underverdenen"
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This MCD was released as a teaser for the full-length "Fra Underverdenen". It includes one track from that album ("Norse") and two tracks exclusive to this MCD. As there are only three songs here, let's take the review song-by-song.
NORSE- A bit more upbeat than most Kampfar tunes, due to the fact that it is in a major key. This is also the first Kampfar song with English lyrics. Great Viking feeling all around.
TROLL- This starts off with a beautiful acoustic guitar which sets the riff to be used in this song. Very melancholy and good for contemplation.
TÆRING- This sounds like a Viking folk song with black metal vocals, nothing electric here, just grim vocals, acoustic guitars, and handclaps (!).Even though this MCD is only 12 minutes long, it is still a worthy and ESSENTIAL addition to your collection. This MCD proves, like all other Kampfar releases, that they hold the throne of Viking Metal."
