Vocalist Dolk of Norwegian old-school black metallers KAMPFAR has released the following statement:
“This was not supposed to be revealed yet. But I decided to do so through [my] personal [online] profile. Even my bandmates don’t know this yet. But I have now finally started my longtime plan to do/write a book. This has been an idea I had for ages now, due to all the questions I get from the ‘media’ about this theme/topic/period of time.
“I have been so tired, in a way, to tell parts of this story without being able to tell the whole story. So the book will be about the early years in black metal and about my side of the story of it all. This book will step on someone’s toes, that’s for sure. But it’s my side of the story. This book is for those who are interested (and it’s some sort of a soul and mind surfer for me personal). To the rest… Well, I don’t give a fuck!! It’s all very early in the process yet. But I have decided to go all the way now.
“Anyway… This has been a long process for me and a big step to make it official. Besides my woman, you are the first ones to know this at all.”
KAMPFAR has been confirmed as direct support for VREID on a North American tour which is slated to begin in late August and run through mid-September. This will be KAMPFAR’s very first time touring on North American soil, and the latest volley of dates supporting new album “Mare”, released this past spring by Napalm Records. Entitled “The Black Path Of America Tour 2011”, the tour will also feature NECRONOMICON.
