Einherjer Av Oss, For Oss on LP
Norwegian Viking metal trio, Einherjer will unleash the battle-ready fruitions of their epically infectious Av Oss, For Oss full-length to North American ears in May 2015. The band’s sixth full-length was written and produced by the band, recorded at guitarist/bassist/vocalist Frode Glesnes’s own Studio Borealis and mixed by Matt Hyde (Hatebreed, Slayer, Children Of Bodom, Monster Magnet). Released on European shores earlier this year, the offering delivers eight elaborately executed war hymns that are at once vicious, gallant and treacherously catchy.
Adds the band: “The Vikings courage and boldness have inspired us to never compromise our vision: A vision that is a unique, self-made, original and modern interpretation of our mighty Nordic heritage. Einherjer have never used their banner to spread cowardly and ignorant propaganda. We never seek entry in the un-culture extremists taint our ancestors with. We wish to give people in all countries knowledge to what we feel is a mysterious and fascinating culture that can be shared and enjoyed by many. Our history rings with the same sound and side by side with other cultures worldwide.
"From the age of the Egyptian pharaohs, the splendor of the Roman Empire, the genius of the Inka, the bastions of Constantinople, the wonders of the east, the honor of the Samurai and the Greek philosophers. Our heritage is a world heritage. And we strive to renew ourselves. We strive to retell our story in a new way. With a new sound. But with the same spirit that has followed Einherjer since the beginning. In the wake of Norrøn, we once again tread a new path. The new album Av Oss, For Oss will help us bring our vision and our heritage even further!”
