Týr-Eric the Red (2003)

Magnificent second full-length from the Farøe Island's Týr. Unlike most folk/viking metal bands these days, Týr takes a more traditional metal approach, with strictly clean vocals, progressive, yet traditional metal sounding riffs, and absolutely face-melting guitar solos, and they mix these elements with the mythology, history, and folk music of their native Farøe Islands, to create a truly unique and unforgettable listening experience. HIGHLY recommended, to all metal fans in general, and especially to folk/viking metal fans. Tuti Records.
