Deeply rooted in tradition but also full of energy and groove, Ofärd is an innovative Scandinavian Folk Metal act that came to life in the ancient wilderness of Öland, Sweden in 2011.
The musical heritage of Sweden, Norway, Denmark and the historical Norse colonies on the Atlantic take new forms as they are combined with riffs and grooves characteristic of melodic death metal, black metal, viking metal and even progressive rock.
With meaningful and detail-rich lyrics based on nature, folklore, cultural heritage and factual episodes and legends from the Scandinavian megalithic antiquity, bronze age, vendel age and Viking age, Ofärd intends to give a new dimension to the folk metal production.
