Indie Recordings 2014
Einherjer is a band with great quality although not often circulate albums. With a 22 year career (Einherjer was formed in 1993) “Av Oss, For Oss” is bands 6th full length. Nonetheless each of these releases are exceptional samples of True, Epic Heavy Metal.
“Av Oss, For Oss” continues the leading tradition handing over nearly 50 minutes of typical but still exemplary Viking, Epic,True Metal. The album includes everything firmly holding the attention including epic and almost cinematic atmospheres, random sampling folk sounds here and there, authentic Norwegian lyrics performed by controlled blackened & metalized vocals. Multitude of classic heavy metal guitar tunes intersperse the heroism of epic romance! Reasonably, without placing unnecessary stuff “Av Oss, For Oss” is a tight exponential album of heroic Epic Metal.
Of course not looking forward for sophisticated convulsions. Not really. Einherjer remain faithful to doctrinal line of absolute Viking, Epic, Heavy Metal. Each song has a certain flow, and the transition from one to the other is to normalcy. Do not expect major differences between songs. The pieces are of similar consistency but the album does not tire, contrariwise is enthralling!
“Av Oss, For Oss” is a semi-typical, perfectly written, article on Viking pentagram, highly inspirational with true Nordic philosophy.
An unbiased donation for any true lover of Viking Saga!
