Einherjer To Release Their First New Album in Eight Years

(IR) Einherjer will release Norrψn, their first new album in eight years on September 13, 20111 via the newly created Indie Recordings North America.

According to singer/guitarist Frode Glesnes, "Varden Brenne" is "an old-school viking metal song, greatly inspired by our own efforts from the mid-'90s. I don't like to limit the reader's reflection on our lyrics, but since it's in Norwegian, I'll bend my rules a bit. 'Varden Brenne' is about the lack of balance, the carelessness and the indifference we see in the world today. We're only humans, but it's too bad we're too narrow-minded to understand that we are rushing to our graves."

Recorded at Norway's Studio Borealis, Norrψn was produced by Glesner and mixed and mastered by Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed, Skeletonwitch). The cover art, painted by Renathe H. Bryn, can be viewed above. The album commences with a 13-minute epic and features the following track listing:

1. Norrψn Kraft
2. Naglfar
3. Alu Alu Laukar
4. Varden Brenne
5. Malmting
6. Balladen Om Bifrost

Says Einherjer drummer Gerhard Storesund, "This is an album that has caused much joy and despair in the creative process. I hope and believe all the blood, sweat and hard work reflect and color our relentless pursuit of creating something beautiful, original and epic, and at the same time giving you the raw and attacking feeling of the real Viking metal spirit."

Einherjer was one of the first bands to incorporate Norse mythology into heavy metal, and one of the founders of the "Viking metal" subgenre.
