Kampfar is a pagan folk/black metal band from Fredrikstad, Norway. According to their singer, Dolk, their name is an ancient Norse battle cry which means Odin or Wotan.
Kampfar was formed by Dolk in 1994 when he left his former band, Mock, and was joined by Thomas. Following the release of Fra Underverdenen, became inactive, and it was not until Dolk joined the band Gruesome and met the bass player Jon that Kampfar became active again. Jon soon became a permanent member of the band and the threesome began rehearsing.
