Windir, translating to "warrior" from the Norwegian dialect of Sognamål, was a folk metal/black metal project of vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Terje Bakken, who went by the pseudonym Valfar. The band formed in 1994 and split up in 2004 after the tragic death of Valfar.

Taken from the metal archives: "On January 14, 2004, Terje 'Valfar' Bakken went out on a walk towards his family's cabin at Fagereggi, but he never arrived. Three days later, authorities found his body at Reppastølen in the Sogndal valley. He had gotten stuck in a snow storm, and had died of hypothermia."

A final Windir concert was played in Oslo, Norway on September 3, 2004 (which would have been Valfar's 26th birthday), along with guest bands Finntroll, Enslaved, and Mindgrinder, in order to honor Valfar's memory. It will not be forgotten.
