TÝR: New Album Title, Release Date Revealed

Faroese Viking metallers TÝR have set "The Lay Of Thrym" as the title of their sixth full-length album, due on May 27 via Napalm Records.

The latest webisode featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the studio can be viewed below.

TÝR's last album, "By the Light of the Northern Star", was released on May 29, 2009 in Europe via Napalm Records. The CD was recorded in early 2009 on the band's native soil. Jacob Hansen mixed the material and finishing touches were provided by the mastering experts at Finnvox.

On "By the Light of the Northern Star" the Faroese band delivered catchy yet technically brilliant tracks, and once again demonstrated how to impressively unite the contemporary present with the mythological past. Traditional homeland melodies, Viking choruses, and classic heavy metal songs, such as "Hold the Heathen Hammer High" or even the title track, offered fans new and powerful hymns. Responsible for the brilliance of this "Northern Star" was once again frontman and mastermind Heri Joensen, who provided an undisputed goosebump factor with his clean and majestic vocals.

TÝR is:

Heri Joensen - Vocals, Guitar
Terji Skibenæs - Guitar
Gunnar H. Thomsen - Bass
Kári Streymoy - Drums
