The band's name is Old Icelandic meaning either "Those who fight alone" or "Those who belong to an army". According to both the Poetic and the Prose Edda, the Einherjar are prominent fighters who, upon their death on the battlefield, are brought to Valhalla by the Valkyries to feast and battle with each other until the coming of the final battle of the gods, Ragnarok.
