Viking Metal pioneers EINHERJER return to their roots on "North Star"
With "North Star", Viking Metal pioneers EINHERJER release their eighth studio album on February 26, 2021, proving their status as the pioneers of blending Nordic Black Metal and Folk Metal genres once again. The album marks the band’s return to Napalm Records after 25 years, and their release of the legendary "Dragons Of The North" album (1996). The Norwegian metal outfit remains musically true to themselves and reinforces their exceptional position.
"North Star" was recorded in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic at the in-house Studio Borealis, owned by founding member and mastermind Frode Glesnes. The raw production ties in seamlessly with its predecessor "Norrøne Spor" and makes "North Star" probably the most powerful EINHERJER album to date! "North Star" is EINHERJER's musical mission towards something bigger - the search for guidance by the North Star in a constantly changing world that is searching for stability.
The album’s opener, "The Blood And The Iron", peppered with uncompromising double-bass thunderstorms, pulls the listener in from the very first second, while "Stars" stomps through atmospheric soundscapes with dark chords. "West Coast Groove" underlines EINHERJER's technical songwriting sophistication with finest guitar solos.
Founded in Norway in 1993, the band has significantly influenced the way of Viking Metal in the following years with "Dragons Of The North" - 25 years later, EINHERJER are stronger than ever and are bursting with energy on "North Star"!
