Himinbjørg is a melodic viking metal band from Chambéry, France. It was formed in the spring of 1996 and signed to Adipocere Records in 2003. It released 6 albums: Where Ravens Fly, In the Raven's Shadow, Third, Haunted Shores, Golden Age and Europa.
The band made a come-back in 2010 to release a new album entitled "Chants d'hier, chants de guerre, chants de la Terre". This album sounds closer to their first release, more pagan-oriented, and is in French.
The name comes from a castle in Scandinavian folklore, where the god Heimdall lives.
