New album of Norwegian vikings is titled North Star.
The word Einherjer is the modern Norwegian version of the Old Icelandic Einherjar meaning either "Those who fight alone" or "Those who belong to an army". According to both the Poetic and the Prose Edda, the Einherjar are prominent fighters who, upon their death on the battlefield, are brought to Valhalla by the Valkyries to feast and battle with each other until the coming of the final battle of the gods, Ragnarok.
Historically, the concept of Einherjar is thought to have been linked to Odinic beliefs and cults spawned sometimes during the late Heathen-period.
Shortly after their split-up in 2004, three of the band members went on to form Battered, however, Einherjer was reformed in 2008.
