Guest review by

Týr is a viking metal band. Oops, a mistake. Even though the riffs, and the folk elements are there, the sound is more like epic heavy/doom metal. Even so, I consider them to be Progressive Viking because their style is really unique, and it gives me a viking feeling when I hear them. Notice there is no harshness on the album, nor folk instruments. This isn't your typical Viking metal album. That it's what makes it so special.

  The cover of this album reminds a lot of Equilibrium's ''Turis Fratyr''. Almost a copy cat
