Viking metallers Einherjer will release their eighth studio album, North Star, on 26 February 2021, proving their status as the pioneers of blending Nordic Black Metal and Folk Metal genres to pure Norse heavy metal once again. On North Star, the band around singer / guitarist / bassist Frode Glesnes and drummer / keyboarder Gerhard Storesund adds more modern, edge designed to appeal to a broad audience while staying true to their roots. The album marks the band’s return to Napalm Records after 25 years.
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 band comment: ”North Star is our eighth 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!”
