Týr - New Album Details

The Lay Of Thrym, the new album from Viking metal band Týr, will be released on May 27th through Napalm Records.

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 setlists.

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.

01. Flames Of The Free

Of all the songs I want to hear "Stargazer" the most, they do have the talent to do Dio and Blackmore proud... can't wait

Oh man, I like what I'm seeing here. Reminds me of some of my favorite Thor comic books. Hope it's good.

I didn't like too much their latest effort, hopefully this album may be slightly different from that one. I can't wait to listen to this album
