About Týr

Based in the Faroes, a group of islands located between Iceland and Norway that has been an autonomous region of the Kingdom of Denmark since 1948, Týr is a progressive folk/Viking metal outfit that records and performs in both English and in their native Faroese language. Taking their name from the Norse God of law, justice, the sky, war, and heroic glory, Týr elicited international acclaim for their 2003 sophomore effort Eric the Red. Subsequent albums like Ragnarok (2006), By the Light of the Northern Star (2009), Valkyrja (2013), and Hel (2019) continued to find favor with metal audiences at home and abroad, while the 2022 concert LP, A Night at the Nordic House, provided fans with a dazzling display of the group's technical prowess.
