Nagelfar were a German progressive black metal band founded in Aachen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany in 1993 by Zorn and Rhyktius V. Grhabakk von Meilenwald.
After a long search for a lead vocalist, Smaug was selected; Svein von Hackenberg became acquainted with Smaug and Rhyktius at a party and entered the band's lineup as bassist in 1995. In autumn 1995, Smaug was replaced by Jander, and Garvin joined as session keyboardist.
Als der Himmel sich schwrzte, fielen unsere Brder
Mit dem sterbenden Licht eines klaren Wintertags
Erlagen ihre Krper dem blutroten Schnee
Und ber weite Felder - der Trauer - sah ich den Krieg
Unter kahlen Bumen blieb ich allein zurck
