TÝR will be delivering a show performed live with the Symphony Orchestra of the Faroe Islands in LP and DVD formats for fans. This special event was recorded at The Nordic House in Tórshavn, the Faroes on February 8th, 2020 and the performance will be available from Metal Blade Records on 2 LP (gatefold, with insert, poster, digital download), a 2 CD/DVD digi-book set with 12-page booklet, and everywhere digital music is sold on March 18th, 2022.
Vocalist Heri Joensen enthuses:
Working with the Symphony Orchestra was without a doubt one of the highlights of our careers. The feeling of sheer sophisticated power behind us was extraordinarily uplifting. We were awed by how well the songs worked in a symphonic setting. ‘By The Sword In My Hand’, for example, seems to take on a new life. It is based on a Nordic traditional melody, and the lyrics are about Sigmundur Brestisson, Faroese Viking chieftain who, on behalf of the king Olaf of Norway, forcibly Christianized the Faroes. We are very excited to finally release a live DVD, CD and LP, and even with the incredible new artwork by Gyula Havancsák, that excellently captures the epic atmosphere of the event. In other news, our team is working on tours, festivals and shows, so please stay tuned and patient. We hope to see you all soon!
