Týr returns to Bucharest on December 11 at the Quantic Club in Bucharest.
Probably the most exotic occurrence of the folk / Viking scene, Týr was born in 1998, when the band members were only 17 years old. The band’s music is strongly inspired by northern mythology, the traditional music of the Faroe Islands and heavy metal music.
‘The mission of Týr is to demolish the walls built between any kind of metal that has appeared in all these years. Power, doom, black, progressive, gothic, viking, folk, ethnic or epic metal. “Such walls do nothing but destroy ideas. ‘” declares the band. Not a foreign band for the Romanian public, Týr has performed in the famous Paganfest and Black Sails Over Europe, alongside Ensiferm, Eluveitie, Turisas, Korpiklaani, Amon Amarth or Alestorm.
With Hel, the Faroe Islands’ Týr provides even more irrefutable evidence that they stand at the vanguard of Scandinavian metal. Their eighth full-length is a collection of ruthlessly melodic and irresistibly compelling progressive folk metal that will immediately resonate with any who have followed the band at any point over the two decades of their storied career. “Being so close to the album, it’s almost impossible for us in the band to have an objective opinion about it, but my impression is that it’s a more diverse collection that’s also more extreme in some ways. There are more instrumental passages than on ‘Valkyrja’ (2013), and there are a lot of guitars and bass details,” states guitarist/vocalist Heri Joensen. “I really feel we’ve realized the vision we set out to create all those years ago, and as I listen through the album, I am satisfied with every aspect: the epicness, the intricacy, the melodies and harmonies, and the sheer heaviness of it. I love the whole atmosphere of it.”
The first 100 tickets cost only 59 lei, the next ones in the press office 79 lei and at the entrance 100 lei.
