At Odin's table in Valhalla, you will find the "einherjar", the slain warriors who died in battle. Einherjer from Haugesund, Norway are one of the Viking metal pioneers. They have been at the forefront of the movement since 1993 with a string of albums balancing between black and folk metal. 25 years after their cult album Dragon of the North, North Star sees the Norwegian combo rejoin forces with Napalm Records for another round of Norse mythology-infused folk-influenced heavy metal music.

Whether its bm, heavy, folk, this release just wasn't my cup of tea. Very generic sound from start to finish brought down even further by the vocals which I think only makes matters worse. There's just no power/boom to his raspy voice, he sounds like a diet/zero calorie Abbath. Id say he sounds very similar to Fredrik Wester (or FW to him by virtue of time) from warfect too, whose vocals I genuinely like, but for whatever reason I'm let down by one and just fine with the other. His voice just lacks something and really damages an already sub par release IMO.

When such size of cannon bands put album out we expect it will be as their old ones. It has own character this band,. good solid viking metal, black metal whit progressive and power touch when its vikinanaized. Its good, I enjoyed it, maybe one of bands what I have not listen so much in old days as other big firts bands from that country
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!
