Thinking or Northern European bands, it’s probably not one from the Faroe Islands that would come to mind first. But, believe it or not, there is a small, yet lively Faroese metal scene which is slowly but surely gaining international attention. Our next confirmed band comes from precisely this scene: HAMFERÐ. For most people, HAMFERÐ are probably still unknown, but we are sure you will hear a lot about them in the future. They created quite a stir with their debut album ‘Evst’, which is not surprising considering the death/doom gems contained in it. HAMFERÐ are deeply rooted in the Faroese culture, which gives their gloomy songs an extra flair. Especially the use of the Faroese language gives the tracks an exotic touch, which is further underlined by their amazing melody lines. So if you want to experience a band which exists far away from the average mainstream corporate metal you should definitely put HAMFERÐ on your personal running order, as they are an exceptional treat, both live and on record.
