    I think I could live in this section :p

    Tyr are one of my favourite bands. My favourite album is Ragnarok with Eric the Red as close second

    New album is fantastic. Took me a while to get into it though.

    Saw them live a few years ago, so good live.

    I realize it may be a bad reasoning to some, yet when I heard in an interview with the band they were asked something like 'do you buy into this heathen religion in your lyrics or belief?' And the lead singer vehemently said 'no'.

    Lost a lot of enjoyment from the music then, because Hold the Heathen Hammer High is a good inspiration song for the faith, in my not so humble opinion. So, it rings hollow when the artist has no heart for it.

    I had to look for an interview, just to be sure this was true, and sure enough it is. I kind of wish I was still ignorant of this fact, it does steal some of the magic.

    I wouldn't worry about it to much, they are probably just afraid of any ridicule. They obviously feel something in their hearts, and perhaps are having trouble putting it into context, the fact that it is misguided at times shouldn't take that much away from it.

    If they were afraid of such, the logic does not add up. In the one video, they chop down a cross and look all victorious. That could raise more hackles, I am sure, in the local christian community.

    In the interview I saw, they looked quite vehement in the claim.. as if they were just carrying a heathen them for a 'look' or maketability. Which is a bit, to me, like those who are into Asatru for the viking metal and nothing beyond that.

    I can still enjoy the music, for what it says to me, but as a band itself.. I lost faith.

    As for other bands, like Amon Amarth, the lead singer has admitted that he gets ideas for his songs from the Sagas and tales. I do not recall him professing faith or lack thereof. I simply enjoy the music for the same reason as Tyr.

    Now, if I could find a band that sounded good, had the message *and* was heathen.. well, I would then be rather excited I admit.

    Yeah that's what I loved about Ulver's first album, just a long story about Trolls and stuff.

    Music artists just in it for fame, women and money?



    There is a saying: "The art surpasses the artist". Maybe more true in music than anything else.

    Heidevolk is the band you seek.

    Indeed, Hornedhelm.
    Especially the first two albums.
