Týr - 'Ragnars Kvæði' (live video)

Hvørki fekk hann Ragnar kongur
Frið um nátt rógv ella dag
Fyrr enn hann hevði knørrin smíða
Suður yvir hav

Títtir við streingjum berjast dreingir
Syngur í oddameingi
Klovna taka tvinni skjøldur
Ørnin dregur á veingir
Deyðir detta dreingir niður á svørðin

Frúgv steig inn um snekkjunnar bor
Tað mundi ongan vara
Orm bar hon í eyga á sær
Dóttir Sjúrðar snara

Sjúrður frægi var faðir hennar
Hann stóð í ormsins blóði
Ásla vard hon kallað sjálv
Og Brynhild var hennara móðir

[English translation:]

Ragnar king got neither
Peace at night or day
Until he had built the ship
South across the sea

Fast on their strings, heroes fight
The vanguard sings
Double shields split
The eagle draws its wings
Heroes fall dead down on the field

A lady stepped on the ship's board
Nobody seemed to notice
She bore a worm in her eye
Daughter of Sigurd the Fast

Sigurd the Fast was her father
He stood in the blood of the dragon
Asla was her name
And Brynhild was her mother



Τον Φεβρουάριο του 2020 οι Týr έπαιξαν "ζωντανά" με την συμφωνική ορχήστρα της πατρίδας τους. Όλο αυτό φιλμογραφήθηκε - ηχογραφήθηκε και το αποτέλεσμα το απολαμβάνουμε ήδη με την κυκλοφορία του δίσκου "A Night at the Nordic House" που "βγήκε" χθες...

Ο δίσκος των Týr 'A Night at the Nordic House'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Týr delivers a stunning show performed live with the Symphony Orchestra of the Faroe Islands. This special event was recorded at The Nordic House in Tórshavn, the Faroes on February 8th, 2020.

This seismic live album will be available on 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.

"Working with the Symphony Orchestra was without a doubt one of the highlights of our careers," admits vocalist Heri Joensen.

"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!
