The story of King Thrym, who dared steal Thor´s hammer "Mjollnir," may set the lyrical stage on TÝR's latest album, but it does not prevent them from covering more current topics like in the track "Shadow of the Swastika." The Lay of Thrym follows the path of the band's previous releases by uniting classic heavy metal riffs with impressive drumming, traditional melodies, and powerful choruses. The result is a number of epic anthems, such as "Take Your TÝRant" and "Hall of Freedom," both of which will most certainly earn a permanent spot on TÝR's future set lists. Frontman Heri Joensen continues to give TÝR a unique and unmistakable edge with magnificent vocals and superb guitar work. Jacob Hansen was again responsible for recording, mixing, and mastering the album, complementing this fascinating Faeroese sound universe with finishing touches that allow every last detail to shine. The Lay of Thrym is a genuine Viking metal album that will undoubtedly secure TÝR's hold on this genre with its heroic melodies and glorious riffs.
