TYR

Based in the Faroes, a group of islands between Iceland and Norway that has been an autonomous region of the Kingdom of Denmark since 1948, Týr record and perform in both English and in their native Faroese language. The progressive folk/Viking metal outfit formed in 1998 in Denmark around the talents of Heri Joensen, Kári Streymoy, and Gunnar H. Thomsen. Joensen's brother Jón and singer Pól Arni Holm joined the group for its 2002 debut, How Far to Asgaard, but left soon after. New guitarist Terji Skibenæs replaced Jón and Streymoy's brother Allan took over vocal duties on the single Ólavur Riddararós. After Allan's departure, Heri took over lead vocal duties and the band began work on its breakthrough song cycle, Eric the Red. Inspired heavily by Norse mythology (the group is named after a Norse god of war), Eric the Red was originally released in 2003 on the regional Tutl label, but found international success when it was reissued by European giant Napalm. The blistering Ragnarok arrived in 2006, followed by Land in 2008 and By the Light of the Northern Star in 2009, all three of which helped earn the group accolades both local and international for its complex arrangements and keen ear for traditional Scandinavian-infused melody. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi

Norsk Folksongs put to metal!!
I love their songs. So awesome.
These guys are so much fun live. so much fun to chant to :D
This cannot be played loud enough
gonna see them along with children of bodom in 5 days so excited!! :D
yeah im glad they have valkyrja now! and so far my favorite albums are valkyrija and lay of thrym!
I can't believe Pandora has the Valkyrja album already. It hasn't even been out for a month yet!
Its all about Regin Smidur
my favorite song by tyr is definately Hold the Heathen Hammer High
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
why hasn't the new album been listed let
Not sure if I like By The Light of the Northern Star or Lay of Thyrm more.

Týr is pretty awesome all around, but By The Light of the Northern Star is easily their best album. I'm disappointed that Pandora doesn't have it.
It will not be the same without Kári
Saw them at Paganfest... INSANE!
I agree with canal_downto w n . . . There's nothing better than listening to modern songs about our ancestors and our Gods
Damn good music! Need more of our ancestral music!
Awesome
Gonna see them AGAIN next month with Ensiferum!
Seen them live, playing with Alestorm, good times..
I once dry humped a goat. It was all like... Baaaaaaaa!
More albums!!!
molan1998oif
I could listen to any song by these guys until my ears fall off :)
Amazing.
One of my all time favorite bands.
compactxassa s s i n
metal bands like tyr and amon amarth are the best kind of metal in my opinion there arent any bands out there that can even touch them
Saw them live...AND IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!
where r they playing on this sat?
Seeing this band this Saturday! STOKED
Would love to see Land and By the Light of the Northern Star on Pandora; they're great albums!
@edogpavlik hell yea!
viking metal kicks a**. it really helps me with Skyrim haha
Favorite band at the moment.
@michal.rudz k i 9 Amon Amarth is not nearly as good as this band. Joensen is a great singer and TYR's albums belong in mainstream record stores at least as much as Amon Amarth. If brick and mortars (Best Buy, for example) were still relevant to music sales, I bet AA would sell more. And as far as death growls go, check out Eluveitie, Ensiferum, and Wintersun for death growls and songwriting talent, something Amon Amarth lacks.
Amazing band live. Well, they're amazing in general, but still.
Hey! White guys who aren't p***ies or coke-sniffin g , gold-chain wearing guidos? How weird and awesome! *The above statement is intended to be swallowed with a heavy dose of irony. Don't get yr panties in a bunch.
@liquidskill s . Some tracks of this album and most of the previous album (by the light of the northern star) of Tyr could be Amon Amarth after one really heavy concert and the singer can't manage his raspy death growls.
Pandora says that this band is similar to Falkenbach, Cruachan, Mithotyn, and Amon Amarth. Do you think this is true? I never heard Mithotyn, but I don't think this band in similar to the other three save for it's Metal with Folk over (or under)tunes. Anyone else think that?
YES! Finally the newest album is on Pandora! (The Lay Of Thrym)
bushaxetothe m a x
Hell yeah that show was sick! I chilled with them in Raleigh as well after a show.
Awesome band! They are really cool guys as well. Drank some with them after a show bout a year ago. Tyr and Amon Amarth in one night, f**king epic night.
where did you see them play live ?
torgo00
Currently my favorite band. I've seen them play live, and they were great. The Eric the Red album that Pandora has is more of a progressive rock sound than say By the Light of the Northern Star (which Pandora REALLY needs to add) but both are awesome.
AMAZING Band BTW...

One of the reasons Pandora matches Tyr with the similar artists on the list is based more heavily on the musical structure of the music in it's library.

I'd say what I've heard of the Pandora catalog is very similar to Falkenbach or Hammerfall, though I wouldn't normally group them with either if I wanted a "Viking Metal" station.

Similarly, Land and LOtNS are much more like AA in sound than either EtR, or Ragnarok.
Interesting rune reading in their name? Journey, Protection (Reversed) and Warrior. Heh heh! A name, a reading, a guidance and a pun all in one neat and tidy package. Great music, too! Vikings always did have an excellent sense of humor, after all?
I'm pretty sure he meant "If you don't know who Tyr the Norse God of heroism is then you shouldn't listen to Tyr."

I don't necessarily agree with that sentiment, but that's what Elicoor meant.
ye how wuld some1 listen to the band but not no them
steelerfnati c 1 9 7 1
Listening to them, very interesting metal. I like it. But anyone who doesn't know who Tyr is should not be listening to the band Tyr.

What an odd statement. How does one grow their tastes then?
@Surt: So you're saying they sound chaotic, like the music is getting pulled from too many directions? I will have to listen closer and see if I can identify with that.
