    Tyr

    Is anybody familiar with this great band? They have been touring with Amon Amarth quite a bit in the past year but not many people know about them.

    Here are a few pics from a recent show and some other related stuff on this entry on my blog.

    Agreed, Tyr is pretty good. Here is one of their videos, Regin Smiður:

    Absolutelly great band! One of my favourites songs is Ragnarok

    They really rock and don't need to growl.

    Hail to Tyr!! 1

    :tiwaz: :raido:

    BTW, I also like very much Amon Amarth (Johann Hegg's beard rocks! )

    Check out this video:

    I love Tyr. Regin Smiður is one of my particular faves. I really wish that they'd tour Vinland. I like Amon Amarth as well, but I'm a guitar junkie and the sparse amount of solos in their earlier work kind of disappointed me, though. I'm not too up on the latest album, maybe they have put more work in on that front.

    Týr is pretty good but their vocals is to power metal-ish at times, but I still enjoy the music alot.

    Yes Tyr is an amazing band. Aren't they Scottish or Faroese or something?

    They are Faroese (or Faeroese, if you prefer). I like it when they sing in their native tongue. A professor of mine from Sweden once told me that the Faroese language is the closest surviving language to Old Norse, even moreso than Icelandic. Awesome.

    I have the cd Eric the Red. It is AWSOME.
    Right now I am listening to Blut Aus Nord. They are great too.

    These are the lyrics of Ragnarok (from the album Ragnarok). Is the first part in Feroese?

    Tøgn gomul søgn forminnis mál
    Hevnd og hatur nevnd øvundar bál
    Á vígvøllum vónin hon doyr
    Hátt for heljar grind garmurin goyr

    Vindøld, Vargøld er komin
    Skeggøld, skølmøld brátt farin er

    Ber fram herklæði merkt av mongun stríð
    Brynju og blankan brand og fram á vøllin ríð
    Komi hvat koma má, lat so fara alt
    Leingi eg henda dag í huga havi fjalt


    Revenge returns to us, this returns to me
    We are bound to battle for eternity
    The wolf restrained in chains, dragon in the deep I see
    This war will throw us corpses in a heap

    With heavy hearts we head, on towards the end
    I've done all I can, never will I bend
    Battle clad we ride, over barren land
    Nothing matters on the battlefield we stand

    And I heard my unborn children's requiem
    I saw carved upon a stone my epitaph
    Sometimes it seems to me there is nothing left between
    Me and eternity

    Again

    With heavy hearts we head, on towards the end
    I've done all I can, never will I bend
    Battle clad we ride, over barren land
    Nothing matters on the battlefield we stand

    All will rise again for a better day
    Earth green with waterfalls where eagles hunt their pray
    Gather our kin again reminiscing times
    All seemed at peace all thought that evil died but then the

    Dragon with fallen in it's
    Feathers entered the world again
    "Cuando la Patria está en peligro, todo está permitido excepto no defenderla"
    José de San Martín

    Yes, I believe so. While I haven't seen Ragnarok specifically quoted as being in Faeroese (and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between that and any other Scandinavian language ), all the older interviews I've seen say that the language used would be Faeroese. I don't see any reason why this track wouldn't be as well. Some of the songs are old Faroese folk tales (such as Regin Smiður). Pretty cool, huh?
