The intention and the goal as musicians has always been to try to capture the atmosphere and the feeling there is to Norse mythology , combined with the intensity of heavy metal music . Therefore we label Einherjer's music as Viking Metal . Einherjer have with their new album "Norwegian Native Art" moved to a more different musical landscape where the dismal and agressive atmosphere are conspicuous. The production is grimmer than ever and positively reeks of raw energy.  In 2004, Einherjer disbanded feeling they had accomplished what they wanted and wishing to pursue other interests.

The name:
Einherjar (or Einheriar) referred to the spirits of warriors who had died bravely in battle. Half of them were escorted from the battlefield after dying by the Valkyries (these are what is referred to as "einherjar"); the other half went to Sessrumnir, Freya's hall. The einherjar live on in Valhalla. During Ragnarok, Odin will call up the Einherjar to fight the frost giants.
