Týr - "By the Light of the Northern Star" (audio)

Ο δίσκος των Týr "By the Light of the Northern Star"
In the mass grave of mythology
Lie the legends of the past
Discarded superstitions,
Although once held high
Both in honour and in awe

Now they have fallen
Too far to rise,
And closed their eyes
The time and the tide

From yearning years
Of want on to dark days of wane
We have walked
By the light of the northern star
From frozen fjords
Of rime out to swift seas of raid
We have sailed
By the light of the northern star
The northern night has never seen
The southern cross shine bright
Across the colder seas
Under rain ridden skies
We go on
By the light of the northern star
May the mighty Mjølnir
Nail the bleeding
And naked Nazarene
Upon the pagan planks
Pound in the painful nails now
And hang him high and dry

Or have we fallen
Too far to rise
And closed our eyes
The time and the tide

Have we fallen too far
To rise and closed our eyes
The time and the tide


Στα τελειώματα της άνοιξης του 2009 οι Týr κυκλοφορούσαν τον δίσκο "By the Light of the Northern Star" ολοκληρώνοντας την πλέον ενδιαφέρουσα δεκαετία της ύπαρξής τους. Η δεκαετία που (την) ακολούθησε είχε περισσότερο εμπορική και λιγότερο καλλιτεχνική επιτυχία.

Το "By the Light of the Northern Star" είχε την "ατυχία" να έπεται των δύο magnum opus της μπάντας, του δίσκου "Ragnarok" και του album "Land". Τα κατάφερε; Μμμ... όπως έγραφα τότε «Κατώτερο των προηγουμένων, μα όχι και των προσδοκιών. Συνειδητή επιλογή. Πιο εύληπτο, πιο "πιασάρικο", πιο εμπορικό, σε καλά όμως στάνταρ ποιότητας.»...
