Týr's preceeding two albums, "Ragnarok" and "Eric The Red", have been recorded at Jacob Hansens Studio. It is situated in Ribe on the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. Ribe is one of the oldes known large and organized viking settlements in Scandinavia, so it's only very fitting that Týr record their albums there.
The co-operation between Týr and Jacob Hansen have been most appreciated by all parts involved so the decision for Týr to continue recording at Jacob Hansens Studio was not a hard one."

Ben Bond is a 5 and 6 string bassist, formerly of the prog outfit Twilight Machine and currently holding down the duties on the low end for the local band "Into the Arena". Ben has been rehearsing with us most of this month and will be making his first live appearance with us on Saturday evening October 27, 2007 (see Shows page) We hope to see you there!
Speaking of which, some slightly bad news....We have had to cancel the scheduled Friday night October 26 show due to the various things that have happened with the band since May. We regret having to do this but there is only so much we can accomplish at one time - especially when working with a a new member of the band. Better luck next time, eh?
