Naglfar are a Swedish Black Metal band forming in 1992, originally under the name Uninterred, with Jens Rydén on vocals and guitar, and Kristoffer Olivius on bass. When additional members eventually joined, Ryden could focus entirely on vocals. Sometime after a few lineup changes, they changed their name to Naglfar, the name deriving from a ship in Norse mythology made from the nails of the dead.

They signed onto Wrong again records in 1995, releasing Vittra. Drummer Mattias Holmgren left shortly after, and they remained silent until sometime in 1998, with the sophomore effort Diabolical being released on War Music.


In 2002, the were signed onto Century Media Records and it is currently their main label. Diabolical was rereleased and Sheol released in 2003. Jens left the band, with Kristoffer, originally the bassist, now doing lead vocals, which carried onto Pariah and Harvest. In 2009, they begun to write Teras which took two years to complete, but was eventually released.
