Valfar founded Windir in 1994. With Windir as a one-man band,
he released the albums Soknardalr (1997) & the legendary
Arntor (1999). By melting black metal and Norwegian folk
music, he created his own style which he referred to as
SognaMetal, due to the strong lyrical connection to Sogndal.
In 2000 he joined forces with his long time friend and
neighbor Hvll. Together they included all the Ulcus members
and set their minds on developing Windir further.
Windir became a massive live act and released the 2 critical
acclaimed albums 1184 (2001) and their greatest success
Likferd (2003). Windir was rising and set on recording their
5th album when tragedy struck. Valfar died in the mountains
Sogndal in January 2004.
The rest of the members decided that Windir could not
Windir died with Valfar. The band released a last album in
honour of their fallen warrior, entitled Valfar, Ein Windir.
The release of the album was marked by a final
Windir-concert at a sold out Rockefeller in Oslo, on the 3rd
of September 2004. This day would have been Valfar's 26th
birthday. Windir guitarist Sture & Valfar's older brother
Vegard Bakken did the vocals this night.
