Originally written for Black Wind Metal. There’s very little to complain about here, save the two cover songs that close out the album, which are both unnecessary and outright lackluster. Write your own review. The darker and grounded melodic vocals of Heri Joensen sound very natural, and both singers harmonize very well together. The music is great, as you would expect from Tyr. The drum work of George Kollias is a breath of fresh air, as the man loves his toms and cymbals, and the small little flourishes he adds are perfectly timed and very much appreciated.

Things You Might Have Missed 2013: Týr – Valkyrja

How Far To Asgaard. As valkyrjw the vinyl itself, it’s well mastered, and there is no surface noise on the record. Most of the lyrics here are as poetic and metaphorical as they normally are, but this one is just upfront and downright raunchy, and it’s uncharacteristic for the band and vwlkyrja, really hard to ignore.

Heri Joensen’s voice may have gotten a bit sandier over the years with the new aggressive style, but his ear for melody is still damn near unmatched, the the harmonies are just as sublime as they’ve always been, it’s really only the subject matter that’s shifted dramatically over the last few albums. It’s also unfortunate that tracks that start off interestingly or more epic and creative than the rest “Grindavisan”, “Fanar Burtur Brandalijoo” just end up reverting to the tried valkyrjja true “Amon Amarth with folk melodies, clean vocals, and less heaviness” formula they’ve been admittedly successfully milking for three albums now.

The album is jump started valkryja the riff filled and very catchy Blood of Heroes which tells how legends should remember their heroes and that there is no greater glory than to die in battle. And this seems to work best when the band sings in their native tongue.


Album Review: TÝR Valkyrja

What made Tyr unique was the richness of their background and the light their songs shed upon the northern world. Heri Joensen lifts what is great writing and ties the very manly, metal bow on an addictive and enjoyable record.

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? It’s just as clean sounding as a CD. Many detractors have generally associated folk metal with power metal, and while I would argue that the similarities between the two sub-genres don’t necessarily lead to confusion, that’s basically where “Valkyrja” ends up. Luckily, unlike some other bands I’ve written about in the past looking at you, ArsisTyr manages to handle the subject matter with an astounding amount of class, keeping everything grounded with their trademark Nordic flavor, obviously sticking to themes like Valkyries, wars fought in their name, and spirit women blowing you in your sleep.

The clear vinyl looks cool too! It meshes together quite nicely with the punchy guitar tone and busy riff work, opting to avoid banshee wails and advanced vocal calisthenics under the guise of a melody, thus keeping things intelligible in spite of the highly technical elements in play.

He has none of the baggage of David Coverdale worship or German thrash that so horribly mars the performance of tons of what would be otherwise excellent bands and that is so avidly worshiped by tasteless power metal fans everywhere.

Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. It’s a bit heavier and more aggressive than an otherwise comparable act like Orden Ogan, but the overtly catchy songwriting and chorus-centered approach carried with it is pretty hard to miss. I enjoy this album do we even use that word any more? This isn’t untrue, but there are a few standout spots that break the mold, like the duet with the chick from Leaves’ Eyes in “The Lay of Our Love” or the basically straight up power metal track and definite standout of the album with “Lady of the Slain”, or even the hearkening back to longer, more developed and complex songs like the title track.


Never throughout this work does it get boring or tedious or hard to listen to.
