EINHERJER's 'Norrøn,' Streaming Now

Norrøn, the first album in eight years from Norwegian trio and Viking-metal godfathers, EINHERJER, is now streaming in its entirety, exclusively, at Terrorizer's site. The album will be released Friday, September 9th in Europe and here in North America on Tuesday, September 13th. Pre-order is available now at Indie's new North American webshop.

Recorded at Norway's Studio Borealis, Norrøn 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. Norrøn Kraft

2. Naglfar

3. Alu Alu Laukar

4. Varden Brenne

5. Malmting

6. Balladen Om Bifrost

For the uninitiated, the band's moniker was inspired by Norse mythology. When a Viking was slain in battle, he was brought to Valhalla by the Valkyries to join the army of slain warriors known as the einherjar, who helped the Gods in their clash against the Giants in the age of Ragnarok.

Founded in 1993, EINHERJER - rounded out by guitarist Aksel Herløe - has previously released four full-length albums and multiple EPs, and toured with such notable names as King Diamond and Cradle of Filth. Norrøn is the band's Indie Recordings debut.
