Nordic metal legends Einherjer have unveiled the third single from their upcoming live album, Norse And Dangerous (Live…From The Land Of Legends), which will be released August 5 via Napalm Records.
“Dragons Of The North” is one of the band’s signature songs. Originally released over 25 years ago on their debut album, Dragons Of The North (1996), it offers powerful, throaty live vocals and heavy drum and guitar elements, marking another band staple.

Einherjer is back to unleash their dark fantasy sound once again. Founded in 1993, the metal veterans have spent nearly 30 years making their mark in the viking metal genre with eight studio albums and two EPs. This year, the band even hit another benchmark, earning a nomination for a Spellemann Prize – the most important music award in their home country of Norway.
Norse And Dangerous (Live… From The Land Of Legends) kicks off with the grand opening “West Coast Groove” from their latest studio album, North Star (2021). Next, ‘The Spirit Of A Thousand Years’ showcases the technical sophistication of Einherjer’s songwriting with the best guitar solos, while ‘The Blood & The Iron’ offers intense, glowing energy and ‘Kill The Flame with his signature riff. But the group does not stop at the most recent songs. After touring several other favorites, the band soon returned to the days of yore with tracks like “Dragons Of The North” and “Ballad Of The Swords” from their 1996 feature debut Dragons Of The North, before concluding with the turn of the century banger “Ironbound” and the classic tune “Far Far North”. The live contrast between their formative hits and more recent orchestrations is clear evidence that the band have stayed true to themselves over the decades, continually delivering an authentic sound.
