Eihwar

Viking War Trance - France

Eihwar Band

Many bands have explored the Pagan & Norse worlds over the last 15 years seeking
atmospheric, acoustic and ritual sounds with great seriousness. This is not the path EIHWAR
chose.
Although the musicians of EIHWAR are virtuosos in their acoustic instruments, their goal is to
bring some fun… and as much chaos as possible during their concerts, provoking the craziest
trance on dancefloors. They bring a festive and powerful neo-viking music whose primal force
is based on technoid machines, mixed with trance vocals and traditional Nordic sounds.
Electronics are a ‘new steel’ for those modern warriors, cold and powerful. As the web already
says, the duo is a kind of new ‘Viking Carpenter Brut’.
Since its appearance on YouTube in February 2023, Eihwar has shook the Internet and concert
venues. The band experienced rapid expansion on YouTube and was quickly booked by major
European festivals such as Hellfest, Leyendas del Rock & Wave Gotik Treffen, and more to be
announced.

“Three winters before the Eihwar clan got together, Asrunn had this crazy experience during a
runic ritual. She started bawling and got her period right then and there. I mean, not even
scarfing down her neighbour’s rabid chihuahua or winning the beer trophy with those
Pyrenean lumberjacks messed her up that bad. After that, she started having these wild visions
during her trances. Then there’s Mark, this shady dude who supposedly hung out with Shredder
(from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) in kindergarten. People say he got kicked out for
practicing some weird stuff called Seiðr and he’s terrified of sunlight. Anyway, Asrunn, Mark,
and a bunch of other misfits formed Eihwar without even planning it. Asrunn ended up
recording music while she was in a trance, like tapping into some ancient power or something,
and that’s how they bridged the gap between ancient gods and our fucking and collapsing
modern world.”

Line-up:

  • Asrunn : Vocals, Traditional Percussion
  • Mark : Vocals, Drum Pad, Samples
