Shortly after their split-up in 2004, 3 of the band members went on to form Battered, however, Einherjer was reformed in 2008.
The word Einherjer itself means 'glorious dead'. The Einherjer were slain warriors, who upon death, were taken to Valhalla by the Valkyries to join Odin's army. In Valhalla, they feasted all night and battled all day, wounds miraculously healing. Thus, they endlessly prepared for Ragnarok, when Odin would call upon them to fight along side the Æsir (Gods).
