Viking Metal pioneers EINHERJER will release their eighth studio album, North Star, on February 26th 2021, once again proving their status as the pioneers of Norse Heavy Metal.
The album marks the band’s return to Napalm Records after 25 years and with stomping drums and gloomy guitar chords paired with ice-cold vocals, new single “Stars” draws the listener into the icy, dark world of EINHERJER!
EINHERJER on “Stars”:
“’Stars’ have many meanings. The night sky is vast and can be overwhelming. Throughout history man has turned to the stars to find answers to all kinds of questions. “Stars” takes you on a musical journey in classic EINHERJER style. A timeless journey. Without borders. Limited only by your own imagination. And as usual, no bullshit! Just proper Norse Heavy Metal!”
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.
EINHERJER on North Star:
”North Star is our 8th full length album, and follows in the (Norse) tracks of Norrøne Spor. The North Star is a symbol with numerous meanings. It can be guidance, or it can be a personal mission. Something to reach for. It’s the Anchor of the Northern Sky. We need something steady in this rapidly shifting world we live in. The North Star album is us reaching for something greater. Developing ourselves through a musical journey in classic Einherjer style – no bullshit, just proper Norse Heavy Metal!
