      Einherjer's final album (2003).

      Einherjer's final album prior to their amicable disbanding sees something of a return to their roots as a more black metal influenced band, principally extending to the resurgence of rasped vocals and drum blast beats. The album sounds a little overproduced which weakens the effect of the drums, but this was perhaps necessary to accommodate the sound of the orchestra, which is used excellently here, more rooted in the bass and brass end than higher strings.

      Opening instrumental 'Einherjermarsjen' paints the perfect historic Scandinavian scene, even if it sounds a little too much like video game background music, and after this the album is led by strong, repeated riffs that unfortunately tend to be a little over-repeated. The quantity of tracks also means that the songs tend to blur together a little more with less individual character and little variation, but there are still a few notable exceptions, especially the faster 'Wolf-Age' with its great guitar solo and the melodic 'Ride the Gallows' that makes effective use of a choir.
