TÝR Recruits NILE Drummer For New Album Recordings

Faroe Islands-based metallers TÝR are recording their new album at Hansen studios in Ribe, Denmark with producer Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, ABORTED, MERCENARY). For drum tracking on the CD, TÝR has enlisted the services of George Kollias, one of metal's most accomplished drummers, primarily known for his work in NILE, as well as NIGHTFALL.

A video clip featuring drum-tracking highlights, as well as a short message from Kollias, can be seen below.

Kollias comments on the experience: "Hey, TÝR fans, this is George Kollias and I hope you are ALL ready for a crushing new album from TÝR!!! I had the pleasure to record the drums on the new album. We had an absolutely great time in the studio and I gotta tell you, the material is super strong and catchy, I'm 100% sure you will all love this new album!! Big thanks to Heri, Terji and Gunnar for the opportunity and to Jacob Hansen for his incredible work with the recordings!"

TÝR comments: "It was a pleasure to have George in studio. He's an amazing drummer and he certainly made an impact on this album. We're very excited to release this album."

A recent announcement on the TÝR Facebook page has confirmed that the band has parted ways with drummer Kári Streymoy. The group stated aboutn the amicable split: "Kári suffered a back injury in 2008, and since then he has had some issues with his drumming. That is the main reason that the co-operation has been problematic for some time now, and we finally decided to part ways. We want to thank Kári for his time in the band. It's been great to have you with us, we wish you the best of luck in the future and we hope you recover fully some day."

TÝR's seventh full-length effort will include the song "The Lay Of Our Love", which is a duet between TÝR vocalist Heri Joensen and Liv Kristine from LEAVES' EYES. Kristine stated about the experience: "Heri already joined LEAVES' EYES at our headliner show in Wacken Open Air 2012. This was an absolute highlight during our live performance. Moreover, I really like his voice and I am grateful for the invitation. A superb track, with inspiring melodies and lyrics, proving the authenticity of TÝR."
