Hamferd Shares New Live Video – “Evst”

Doom band Hamferð have released a live video recording of “Evst”, the title track off the band’s 2013 debut LP. Hailing from the Faroe Islands, the band made the clip at the release show for their latest album, Tamsins likam, on March 17th, 2018 at the old Sjonleikarahusið theater in Torshavn. The new album is out now via Metal Blade Records, and you can watch the video below.

Singer Jon Aldara commented:

“This concert was a meticulous production in regards to performance, sound and lighting, and we felt it was the perfect opportunity to record it properly. It’s a great feeling to have a live recording of Hamferð that does not come from an iPhone or from a festival production that we had little to no control over. We took everything in our own hands and went the whole nine yards with a brilliant crew and all the high-end equipment we could get our hands on. Luckily, I really think it shows!”

Hamferð will head out on a tour of Scandinavia this week, notably playing Sweden for the first time in their 10-year long career. See below for all dates!

Hamferð – Támsins likam

Hamferð’s slavish devotion to pristine technique and execution on Támsins likam (Metal Blade) becomes abundantly clear merely minutes into it. It’s got the type of laser-focus that may not be feasible for other metal musicians. It’s so well-formed and thought through that it could slightly border on predictable for some listeners. And it’s all well and good to feel that way, but this reviewer enjoys a good Doom Metal album that’s been properly mapped out and won’t run way passed its welcome. Continue reading
