After playing guitar in Kampfar for quite a few years, I have now decided to leave the band. I cannot even begin to sum up all the good times I’ve had together with my bandmates, and our close friendship will surely continue outside of the context of the band.
I sincerely hope the guys will find another guitarist to play in the band (the riffs are not that hard to play and there are no solos, which could be seen as a plus or a minus depending on perspective.) On the stage, you’ll only need to pay attention to Ask, since he knows how to keep in time. It is also best to watch out for Jon and Dolk as they are maniacs and will not stand still for a moment. 😉
To all the good people I’ve met through Kampfar, take care and I’ll see you around.
For my brothers in the band, my love and respect as always.
