Týr - "Sunset Shore" (video)

Δισκογραφική επιστροφή μετά από έξι χρόνια για τους Týr. Ο διάδοχος του "Valkyrja" (2013) και όγδοος συνολικά δίσκος των pagan metallers τιτλοφορείται "Hel" κι αναμένεται τον επόμενο μήνα. "Ποδαρικό" έκανε το lyric video του τραγουδιού "Fire and Flame". Σειρά για παρουσίαση παίρνει το βίντεο του μουσικού κομματιού "Sunset Shore"...

Heri Joensen: «In early January, immediately after spending our holidays in the Faroes, Gunnar and I traveled to Hungary to our bandmates, Tadeusz and Attila, in Budapest. Finally it was time to shoot another video, our first since 2014, and we’re very happy to present this one to you!

The Hungarian film production crew, Mihaszna Film, arranged the trips, starting from Budapest and going first to the Julian alps in Slovenia. In the fields and rivers of the snowy mountains we had some amazing scenery for “overworld" part of the video.

A few days later we traveled on to the caves of Szent-István in northern Hungary, and deep underground we found some dark and gloomy caves to be the perfect backdrop for the underworld part of this video. Terji wrote Sunset Shore, for our upcoming album, Hel - to be relased on March 8th, and he plays the solo on the album version, but not in this video.

We decided it was the perfect opportunity to introduce you all to the amazing talent of Attila Vörös, who recorded his own version of the solo a few days before the video shooting. The lyrics, written by me, Heri, are about how the mind can sometimes be a windswept and weatherworn landscape, and how the only thing to do, in spite of hopelessness and despair, is to aim for a better place and to work towards better times. We hope you enjoy the result!»

Δελτίο τύπου: «On March 8th, the Faroe Islands' Tyr will release their eighth full-length, Hel, via Metal Blade Records. Hel 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. Hel can be pre-ordered in the following formats:

➤ digipak-CD
➤ box set (digipak CD, drinking horn, leather belt clip, poster, autographed photo card - limited to 1000 copies)
➤ steel-blue / gray marbled vinyl (US retail exclusive - limited to 500 copies)
➤ clear mushroom brown marbled vinyl (US webstore exclusive - limited to 200 copies)
➤ blue / white / black / red splatter vinyl (US webstore exclusive - limited to 100 copies)
➤ 180g black vinyl (EU exclusive)
➤ turquoise blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 500 copies)
➤ clear / blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 300 copies)
➤ bordeaux red /black marbled vinyl (EMP exclusive - limited to 200 copies)
➤ olive marbled vinyl (Nuclear Blast exclusive - limited to 200 copies)
➤ white / blue marbled vinyl (Tutl exclusive - limited to 100 copies)

Known for their prolific nature - dropping their first five full-lengths in the space of just seven years - the six-year gap between Valkyrja (2013) and Hel is by far the longest between any two of their records. During that period the band toured hard, taking the album around the world, including a support run with Children Of Bodom in North America and an appearance on the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise. However, other factors played into this extended break between releases.

"We approached this one differently because I learned that if I continue doing albums in the way we had up to now, I would die from a heart attack before I'm 50!" says guitarist/vocalist Heri Joensen.

"That's one of the reasons we changed our method and took such a long time on this one." That this tactic - which also includes more songwriting contributions from bassist/vocalist Gunnar Thomsen and guitarist Terji Skibenæs than on previous releases - has been beneficial is borne out in the finished product, which is perhaps more immersive than those that came before.

"Musically it leans a bit towards our album, 'Ragnarok' (2005)," states Thomsen. "It's a bit more epic and also much better worked through than any of our previous albums." It also marks the recording debut of drummer Tadeusz Rieckmann, who has manned the drum throne for Tyr's live shows since 2016.»

  1. Κάποιος να πληροφορήσει τους Τυρ ότι το heavy metal μέσα στις σπηλιές απαγορεύεται λόγω κινδύνου κατολίσθησης (εκτός κι αν είσαι οι Manowar όπου το σπήλαιο κοκαλώνει λόγω σεβασμού)

    1. Το σπήλαιο (όπως και κάθε τι πάνω σε τούτο τον πλανήτη) σέβεται μόνο τον Chuck Norris!!!

  2. A, και όσον αφορά το κομμάτι...

    2/2 μέχρι τώρα που δεν μου αρέσουν από τον επερχόμενο δίσκο.
    Παραμένω βέβαια θαυμαστής των πρώτων Τυρ και του ωκεανού έμπνευσης που είχαν τότε.
    Η περίπτωση μου θυμίζει Grand Magus που από τα έπη Wolf's return και Iron Will ξέπεσαν στα ανέπνευστα τελευταία.
    Για το όλο φαινόμενο ωστόσο ευθύνονται οι Manowar αλλά αυτό είναι άλλη κουβέντα...

    1. Εμένα, πάλι, μου άρεσαν και τα δύο. Δεν με "τρέλαναν", αλλά μου άρεσαν. Θεωρώ τα πρώτα albums αξεπέραστα, οπότε δεν έχω δεν έχω ιδιαίτερες προσδοκίες (και) για τούτο.

      ΥΓ. Θέλω να ακούσω την θεωρία σου περί του "φαινομένου Manowar" που αναφέρεις...
