Rycraft Phenomenal release from one of the originators of Viking Metal. Perfect mid-paced tempos with a strong traditional metal influence. The bass really drives the rhythm section and it's great to hear an instrument properly utilized that is too often neglected in the extreme metal genre. This whole release will keep the metal grimace on your face and rowing hard until you make landfall. Cannot wait for their next release! Favorite track: Fra Kinge Te Narr.

H.L. Currently there is a kind of renaissance of great bands from the 90s, for example Norden, Hecate Enthroned or EINHERJER. I really appreciate that the Dragons from the North are back with full force, means with old school viking metal, rough, pulsating and very anthemic! These vikings rock and and it is good to see that the flame is still burning! Favorite track: Mine Vapen Mine Ord.

about

The legendary pioneers of Viking Metal, Einherjer, have carried out their vision for more than two decades. The band was there when Norwegian extreme metal grew forth and took shape as an enormous cultural export. Only 4 years after their Norwegian Grammy-nominated masterpiece “Av Oss, For Oss” and 2 years after “Dragons Of The North XX”, the band comes back with a smasher! The band will release their ninth full-length titled “Norrøne Spor” on November 9, and the record’s first single and music video “Spre Vingene” is already available!

Einherjer’s Norse heritage is a phenomenon that reaches far beyond what one can hear alone. It is an amalgamation of the mystique and sagas of old, of songs and poems, of woodcutting and sword grinding and the vikings merciless way of life. It’s a cultural patchwork that fills the consciousness with the brutal majesty of the Nordic nature, the elemental strain, of mighty longships plowing the black seas to reach unknown shores. The wisdom of the gods and their Valhalla. Of cultural encounters and trade. Of violence and brutality. Of tough men in a tough time. Their hometown Haugesund also rings with historic sound, and from their own shores on the west coast of Norway the influence of the Vikings stretched towards the sea and the world beyond. The adventurers, pioneers, poets and craftsmen have inspired Einherjer to go their own way. The Vikings’ courage and boldness have inspired us to never compromise Einherjer’s vision: A vision that is a unique, self-made, original and modern interpretation of our mighty Nordic heritage.


The band’s vocalist & bassist, Frode Glesnes, has commented their upcoming album: “Classic Einherjer meets the future and the past! No, we have not returned to our roots! That's a way overused cliche and it always calls for bullshit! We have simply written and arranged more stuff together. On our last few albums we have written songs separately, this time we've looked at what happens when Gerhard & me are in a room together. We still have a firm grip on what Einherjer is all about. That will never change! Here is 10 new songs that any heathen metalhead should be able to love and appreciate. No bullshit, just 10 great metal songs!", and has continued about the single: “New Einherjer single! It always feels good to release something new, but this time we've fuckin' nailed it! Can't wait to present the whole album!
