Einherjer - Signs With Indie Recordings

Indie Recordings is proud to announce the signing of Einherjer.

Official press release: Legendary Viking Metal act Einherjer have signed to Indie Recording for the release of their comeback album due out in the spring of 2011.
Einherjer was one of the very first bands to use the Viking thematic and the Norse mythology in metal, and are one of the founders of this now widely acclaimed metal sub-genre.

Their name also origins from the Norse mythology as Einherjer is a vikings life after death. When a viking was slained in battle, he was brought up to Valhalla by the Valkyries, for then to join the army of Einherjers and help the Gods in their clash against the Giants in the age of Ragnarok.

Einherjer disbanded in 2004 after the release of their album Blot through Tabu Recordings. Einherjer was gone until 2008 when they announced their return to the live scene, and in 2009 they played the Wacken, Ragnarock, Kaltenbach and some selected dates on the Paganfest 09 tour. Einherjer is currently finishing up their 5th studio album, still in the spirit of their previous releases.

OMFG YES. Finally... at last! Been waiting for an update ever since they announced being in the studio a year ago.
A new signing means there's more than one album coming, I fucking hope!!!

However many greats there are in metal, these guys are still my most favorite metal band.
