Greetings Aksel, how things are going?
Hey! All well here.Been busy doing festivals and being creative this year.Having fun playing and do what we do best.

First, tell me when did Einherjer was founded?
Einherjer was founded in 1993 by Frode and Gerhard.

Last year, ”Av Oss, For Oss”, the sixth full-lenght was released. Tell me about it.
This is probably one of the albums which we have dared to challenge ourselves by implementing more of our influences musically. Before we were more inside a frame on how we were suppose to sound.But on the two last albums we have done what we think is cool regardless. We still have our signature.No one can tell us what Einherjer should sound like.We started it and we’ll do what sounds right to us.

Have you got nice reviews about ”Av Oss, For Oss”?
Yes. The feedback has been nothing but amazing,so we must have done something right.
