Hamferð: “Hvølja” Video/Single from Faroese Death/Doom Outfit Now Playing!

Hvølja,” the chest-caving new single from Faroe Islands-based death/doom practitioners HAMFERÐ is now streaming alongside an accompanying video. The punishing new hymn appears on the band’s Men Guðs Hond Er Sterk full-length, set for release on March 22nd through Metal Blade Records.

When this magisterial sextet’s third album Támsins likam emerged in 2018 – ten years after they first entered a rehearsal space – the highly acclaimed and powerfully emotive opus thrust the mourning-suited band onto the world stage. Louder Sound crowned the record, “a stunning triumph,” Heavy Music HQ concurred lauding a, “tour de force for the band,” while Nine Circles observed, “HAMFERÐ taps into a rich cultural vein to draw influence for their lyrical and musical themes, yet the filtering of this through the lens of death/doom makes for a unique approach to folk-themed metal, and one that is hugely successful in its application.”

Six years on, the accumulation of plentiful live experience and interpersonal chemistry has had a profound impact on HAMFERБs extraordinary fourth LP, Men Guðs Hond Er Sterk, feeding into the artisanal sonic vision of guitarist and producer, Theodor Kapnas.
