Naglfar

Naglfar formed in 1992. The band was originally called "Uninterred", and was founded by Jens Rydén on vocals and guitar, and Kristoffer Olivius on bass. The band had its first full line-up when Ulf Andersson from Nocturnal Rites joined the band to play drums, and Morgan Hansson and Fredrik Degerström joined on guitar. With this new line-up Jens could concentrate on vocals. In March of 1994, Fredrik left Naglfar due to personal issues with the band as well as musical differences.

Naglfar formed in 1992. The band was originally called "Uninterred", and was founded by Jens Rydén on vocals and guitar, and Kristoffer Olivius on bass. The band had its first full line-up when Ulf Andersson from Nocturnal Rites joined the band to play drums, and Morgan Hansson and Fredrik Degerström joined on guitar. With this new line-up Jens could concentrate on vocals. In March of 1994, Fredrik left Naglfar due to personal issues with the band as well as musical differences. Soon afterward Ulf left the band as well so that he could concentrate on Nocturnal Rites. It was during this tumultuous period which the band was writing and recording their first demo in Garageland Studio, titled Stellae Trajectio. The demo was released in November of 1994. Before it was publicly released, however, the band officially changed their name to Naglfar.

In early 1995, the band was signed by Wrong Again Records, and that summer they released their debut full-length album, Vittra. After the recording was over, Mattias Holmgren left the band. Other than appearing on an Iron Maiden tribute CD (they performed the song "The Evil That Men Do"), the band was relatively inactive for the next few years. Their second album, which received strong reviews, was titled Diabolical and released in 1998. After more line-up changes, Naglfar recorded an EP called Ex Inferis, and a full-length called Sheol.

In 2005, the full-length album Pariah was released. With some of the best production values to date and more imaginative song formats, this album was impressive to old and new fans alike. The album was followed by a highly successful tour together with Dark Funeral across Europe, as well as several festival dates.

In December, Morgan Lie had been confirmed as the full bass player for the band. "It's now official. Morgan Lie has joined the ranks permanently as our bass player. He's been handling the live duties exceptionally well, and also has been contributing with music for the new album, so it's our pleasure to welcome him into the band". « hide
