From the Promoter
Metal band founded in 1998, from the Faroe Islands. Týr is currently finishing work on their eighth studio album, due out fall 2018 via Metal Blade Records. This upcoming record will be the follow-up to the band's critically claimed full-length, Valkyrja, which was released in 2013. The concept behind Valkyrja involves a story based around a nameless, Viking-era warrior, who leaves his woman and goes off to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Folkvangr, the home of Freyja - the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women. Front man and founder Heri Joensen goes on to explain: "The woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of Women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women."
