Bio:

Profession of the Christian Faith or Decapitation: This was the choice given by Sigmundur to his Faroese Viking compatriot Tróndur í Gøtu. And so it was that in 999 A.D., the Christianization of the small “Faeroe Islands” began, casting a veil of oblivion over the ancient Scandinavian gods and only leaving the relics of forgotten heathenry buried deep within the Christian ritual. Or so it was believed...Exactly 999 years later, a small group fondly remembering the archaic gods and rites came together to form the Faroese Viking metal band, TÝR. The one-armed God of War —the bravest of all— became the eponym of the Nordic quartet. Yet TÝR mastermind Heri Joensen is no war monger in disguise and points out that TÝR (also known as the God of Justice) is also revered for first seeking the avenues of diplomacy—an attribute that does not take away from this god of war’s drive.A distinctive trademark that sets TÝR apart from most other bands of the Viking metal genre is the authenticity of their music: “Traditional music dating back to the Vikings, that is not preserved anywhere else in the world, not even in Iceland, is passed on in an oral tradition here and it is still alive and well. That is what we build our music on and draw great inspiration from,” explains Joensen.Almost every song is based on Faroese or Norwegian lore, and is riveted in the garb of the folk metal genre. Its approach unmistakably creates very true Viking metal.Following the release of a demo, the Ólavur Riddararos single, full-length How Far to Asgard, six years of innumerable gigs, and several domestic television appearances, TÝR’s second full-length Eric the Red became the Islands’ best-selling album, coming to the attention of Napalm Records, the label that finally made the album available worldwide in 2006.Immediately, the unique approach of TÝR´s music, melting traditional Nordic songs and dances with Celtic influences, doom, heavy, and progressive metal found fans around the globe. “Hail to The Hammer” became the hymn to the new generation of folk, pagan, and Viking metal fans.In late 2006, TÝR refined their trademark sound with Ragnarok. Technically brilliant and 100 percent authentic, Ragnarok was nothing less than a masterpiece within the true Viking metal genre. The Faroese band embarked on a European tour with Die Apokalyptischen Reiter and a few months later with AMON AMARTH. Though musically different, TÝR gained legions of new fans, impressed by the four men on stage, who were able to turn every show into a demonstration of musical prowess.Festival appearances throughout Europe and continued touring followed until TÝR enjoyed their biggest live triumph ever at the very over-crowded Wet Stage in Wacken.Land was released in 2008 and proved to be yet another milestone in the band’s career. Traditional Faroese lyrics marked tracks such as “Gátu Ríma,” “Fípan Fagra” and “Lokka Táttur,” and “Gandkvæði Tróndar,” which is a poem by J.H.O. Djurhuus about the Faroese chieftain Tróndur, who fought against the dying of the old beliefs and for the independence of the Faeroes. A video clip was produced to the fan favorite “Sinklars Vísa.” Land received overwhelming positive feedback and a new audience was able to experience the power of TÝR for the first time.Following the release of Land, TÝR embarked on numerous tours through Europe. One of the highlights was without a doubt the Aaskereia Festival tour with then label-mates Alestorm and Hollenthon. Thanks to their efforts, the band reached many new fans with their memorable concerts. 2008 ended with TÝR being nominated as “Band of the Year” by the Faroese National TV and radio. However, the band had no time to rest on its laurels and embarked on yet another tour through North America in the spring of 2009.Despite their busy touring schedule, TÝR worked on new songs recorded in early 2009. The band chose to produce the album on native soil. Jacob Hansen mixed the new material with finishing touches provided by the mastering experts at Finnvox. By the Light of the Northern Star met with great feedback from fans and critics alike. The new anthem “Hold the Heathen Hammer High“ was regarded as the legitimate successor to “Hail to the Hammer.” After the release of the album By the Light of the Northern Star, the band played numerous concerts and festivals, as well as taking part in the 70.000 Tons of Metal cruise, while still finding the time to work on new material for their upcoming release.The story of King Thrym, who dared steal Thor´s hammer "Mjollnir," may set the lyrical stage on TÝR's latest album, but it does not prevent them from covering more current topics like in the track "Shadow of the Swastika." The Lay of Thrym follows the path of the band's previous releases by uniting classic heavy metal riffs with impressive drumming, traditional melodies, and powerful choruses. The result is a number of epic anthems, such as "Take Your TÝRant" and "Hall of Freedom," both of which will most certainly earn a permanent spot on TÝR's future set lists. Frontman Heri Joensen continues to give TÝR a unique and unmistakable edge with magnificent vocals and superb guitar work. Jacob Hansen was again responsible for recording, mixing, and mastering the album, complementing this fascinating Faeroese sound universe with finishing touches that allow every last detail to shine. The Lay of Thrym is a genuine Viking metal album that will undoubtedly secure TÝR's hold on this genre with its heroic melodies and glorious riffs.Valkyrja, the 7 full-length album from the Faroe Islands natives TÝR, is a concept album with a story line based loosely around an nameless Viking age warrior who leaves his woman and goes off to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Fólkvangr, the home of Freyja—the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women. Frontman and founder Heri Joensen goes on to explain; “the woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of Women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women.”Recorded at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark with Jacob Hansen who handled production, mixing and mastering, the band began writing guitars and drums for Valkyrja over a year ago with melody lines and arrangements being handled in the studio. “I had the story outline and approximate titles very early in the writing process, but only very late, maybe almost too late, did I write the actual lyrics,” comments Heri Joensen. The band’s drummer, Kári Streymoy, parted ways with TÝR after the band completed their US run on Pagan Fest and before they entered the studio so TÝR enlisted George Kollias who stepped in to handle recording duties on Valkyrja. In terms of what the band hopes fans take away from the album, bassist Gunnar H. Thomsen states “I hope they will enjoy it and they like the new direction as well as (guitarist) Terji's bigger involvement in writing and George's drumming. We had a more upbeat direction without changing TÝR's style.”

Album:

Folk metal veterans hailing from the small Faroe Islands, Týr never fail to impress as this is their 7th full length album. The band parted ways with their original drummer Kári Streymoy and for this album had George Kollias from Nile record the drums.The album is jump started by the riff filled and very catchy Blood of Heroes which tells how legends should remember their heroes and that there is no greater glory than to die in battle. Týr also sing about women and the struggles that can happen and this is clear in Mare of my Night and Hel Hath no Fury which both tell a story of a scored female. With the help of Liv Kristine from Leaves Eyes The Lay of Our Love is a very good traditional Faroese/Danish ballad in which the dual vocals swapping from Heri Joensen to Liv Kristine seems to work very well. Lady of the Slain and Another Fallen Brother definitely shows off the bands skill as these are much faster songs written by Terji Skibenæs and Guns. Terji has mentioned in interviews that his influences are bands like Slayer, Pantera, Testament and Metallica, and it really rubs off onto these songs making them more thrashy and definite highlights of the album.Coming from a Nordic country it shouldn’t be a surprise that their lyrics are based around Norse mythology, paganism and traditional Nordic stories, and this album is no different with a focus on Valkyries and the Viking afterlife e.g. Into the Sky. And this seems to work best when the band sings in their native tongue. The songs Grindavísan and Fánar Burtur Brandaljóð are sung entirely in Faroese which really does make for listening pleasure. All lyrics are written by Heri Joensen or taken from historical figures and stories. Heri Joensen and Terji Skibenæs write most of the songs but Gunnar Thomsen has input on some songs.So in conclusion, this is up there with the top Týr releases, if not their best work to date. Never throughout this work does it get boring or tedious or hard to listen to. The only thing is that there could have been a tiny bit more folky elements and there are no huge risks taken, but it works well so they clearly know something I don’t.

Thomsen states “I hope they will enjoy it and they like the new direction as well as (guitarist) Terji's bigger involvement in writing and George's drumming. We had a more upbeat direction without changing TÝR's style.”

Album:

TÝR has made a name for themselves in Folk Metal as consistent champions in the field. Having released their first five full-length albums over the course of seven years, they quickly branded themselves as prolific purveyors of their craft. However, the band did take some time away to hit the road and begin crafting their next release.Now, after a six-year break since their 2013 album, Valkyrja, the guys have returned to offer up a new sampling of Norse and Viking mythological grandiose Metal for the masses. Their eighth studio album, Hel, is set to release on March 8, 2019 through Metal Blade Records, and it is the culmination of the work put in during their recording hiatus. Composed of Heri Joensen (vocals/ guitar), Attila Vörös ( guitar), Gunnar “Gunz” H. Thomsen (bass), and Tadeusz Rieckmann (drums), TÝR has returned to the scene with a new arsenal of songs that encompass not only their Faroese roots and stories of legend, but their skills and musical dexterity.Hel begins with a classic Folk Metal sound that includes a jogging percussive pace and accompanying chord progression that jolt and jaunts across the first track, “Downhill Dunk.” Compared to their contemporaries and even some of their own previous work, despite the lovely guitar solo at the bridge, it’s a bit of a slow start. This is not to say it’s not without its merit, but it’s not the “wake up and pay attention” track many artists usually select to kick off their albums. This is one of many places where TÝR differs from their peers, because the following track, “Songs of War,” is far more sonically interesting at the onset than its predecessor. Here the listener is given a sharp guitar riff to kick things off before de-escalating into a much grander, fuller sound that rips and runs in dynamics that keep the ear guessing.The band shows respect to their roots and heritage with two ballads performed completely in Faroese, “Ragnars Kvæði,” and “Álvur Kongur.” Lyrical differences aside, it is the emotion and delivery of these songs that set them apart. They are measured and intentional in their performance. In “Ragnars Kvæði,” here is no grandiose overture meant to impress or astound the listener, there is just an earnest homage to their home and the great mythos that enshrouds it. Who doesn’t love a good Viking ballad? If there is one thing TÝR does well is guitar solos and instrumentation. This is not to say that their vocal charm or capability is lacking, but in many ways, it pales compared to their orchestration. There are many bands who try so hard to be great songwriters, musicians, and performers that all three lack considerably. This is not the case with TÝR. As exemplified on Hel, the men of TÝR are definitely not deficient on all these fronts, but rather where they shine is in their capabilities as students. It is apparent from listening to this album that they have invested a lot of time into learning their craft, defining their niche, carving out their skills, and finding new ways to apply these things to their music.Songs like “Fire and Flame” and the first album single, “Sunset Shore,” display this adaptation and learning curve with their incredibly different approaches and development. “Fire and Flame,” much like its name implies, is more dynamic and engaging, whereas “Sunset Shore” lends itself to its namesake with a more waning overtone. Long-time fans will be able to hear the progression from Valkyrja to Hel and the little tricks the band picked up along the way. The string work is strong here, especially when compared to their earlier work. They are taking new chances here and extending their reach a little at a time. This is apparent on “Against the Gods” where the fretwork is in over time along with the percussion, both of which also rip in “Empire of the North.” Overall, Hel is a respectable showing of TÝR’s ability to adapt and leverage the things they learn into a showcase of styles. Both diverse and yet expected, Hel is not reinventing the wheel, but it is displaying what can be done when you put different rims on one. With a sound that is both well-rounded in its finesse and technical aptitude and eclectic in its application, TÝR has given long-time fans something new to devour and first-time listeners a bento box of offerings to choose from. So, for diversity and eccentricity,
