Doomster Hamferð from the Faroe Islands returns on Metal Blade Records with Támsins likam. Roughly translated as "Body of the Mist," Támsins likam is an attempt to create the most intriguing, honest and unique Hamferð experience yet. It is nothing less than a pinnacle; a culmination of many years of refining both sound and songwriting, spearheaded by a strong desire to keep progressing and expanding. This has resulted in an album bustling with elements ancient and familiar, violent and strange, earthen and spectral – all the while fiercely seeking to surprise and move the listener.
Once again recorded in Studio Bloch in the Faroe Islands, but this time mixed by the legendary Swedish sound wizard Daniel Bergstrand in his Dugout Productions studio, Támsins likam exhibits a rawer and more mature version of the known Hamferð sound. The somewhat harsh and bare soundscape deliberately contrasts with the refined compositions, while at the same aligning with the increasingly honest and violent lyrical content.
Comments Hamferð on the new album: "‘Támsins likam' is a natural progression of the Hamferð sound, and we feel that it is our most special and cohesive work yet. Even more so than on previous albums, we have sought to create a full musical epic; inspired among other things by classical symphonies and progressive concept albums. It should be obvious that we are extremely excited to start performing this new material on the road."
