The vikingrock band Njord was created in early 2003 and has now evolved to one of the most active vikingrock bands in the world. The band was created by Mathias (vocals & guitar) and Johanna (bass) after influences of Ultima Thule and Völund Smed.
In February 2003 Andreas Momqvist (former member) from the punk band Soypooh joined the band and placed himself behind the drums to record a couple of songs with us for the compilation cd Party på Valhall.
After a couple of months the band wanted to start playing live and therefore the members decided to introduce a fourth viking.
Patrik Björkmann, former bassplayer in Soypooh jumped behind the drums and Andreas took on the sologuitars and backing vocals instead. This enabled a musical evolution and the possibility to play live.
After 2 years of minor releases on compilation cd’s as well as gigs in front of a couple of hundred persons the band experienced inside problems and therefore Andreas and Patrik left the band. Johanna and Mathias continued for a couple of months looking for new members before Patrik rejoined the band.
The three vikings continued their journey and after several months of looking for a second guitarist, Daniel Eklund (guitar and backing vocals) joined the band.
Njord has made themselves a name by participating on several compilation cds such as Party på Valhall and Carolus Rex together with artists such as Ultima Thule, Hel and Enhärjarna.
The debut album ”Mot himlen…” was released at the moment the band members felt entirely confident with their material; in July 2008 at the company Vikingarock Records (sweden).
Njord is currently working on their second album which is to be recorded during 2010.
