Hamferð – ‘Támsins likam’ (2018)!

Hamferð refers to an apparition: the image of a person facing death, appearing before his or her loved ones as an omen.

“Faroese doom metal” is a powerful sound. Exclusive to this self-styled tag is Hamferð. For nearly a decade, the funereally dressed sextet has been casting a unique expression rooted in conceptual tragedy and intense, narrative doom metal.

“Hamferð is heavily inspired by our natural surroundings and our cultural heritage. Those aspects combine into unique feelings and atmospheres which we attempt to describe through our music.” – Theodor Kapnas

With an ambitious lyrical and conceptual approach, Faroese language, history and folklore are mixed together with grand atmospheres and weather-beaten grimness; a trademark that has earned worldwide attraction.
