Viking Metal outfit Einherjer have announced their new album, North Star, will be released on February 26th via Napalm Records. The follow-up to 2018’s Norrøne spor marks the group’s return to Napalm Records since 1996’s Dragons of the North. To accompany the announcement of their overall eighth studio album, the band has shared a video for the first single “Stars.”


The band comments on the track:   

“’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 during the pandemic at the in-house Studio Borealiss, owned by the group’s mastermind Frode Glesnes. 


The group explains:

”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!”
