“The lyrics of ‘Hold the Heathen Hammer High’ are about upholding the old Northern ways, but in a modern fashion, not religiously but culturally,” explains TÝR founder, guitarist and vocalist Heri Joensen. “The original video was very anti-Christian, although that was never the main message of the song. This new symphonic live version, with the symphony orchestra Holding the Heathen Hammer High with us, will bring out the modern heathen in us all!“The live album, A Night At The Nordic House (With the Symphony Orchestra of the Faroe Islands), will be available in multiple limited-edition vinyl variants, including 2 LP (gatefold, with insert, poster, digital download), a 2 CD/DVD digi-book with 12-page booklet, and everywhere digital music is sold on March 18th, 2022.Pre-Orders for the album are available at: metalblade.com/tyr“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.“TÝR will celebrate a special 20th anniversary show on February 26th in Runavik, Faroe Islands, before hitting Europe and Australia with festival and headlining dates through October 2022.All TÝR tour dates: tyr.fo/showsEuropean Variants:180g BlackCrimson Red Marbled (limited 300)Twilight Blue Marbled (limited 200)Olive Green Marbled (limited 200)US Variant:Ochre Brown MarbledBand Exclusive:Bright Red Marbled (limited to 200)Artwork by Gyula HavancsákA Night at the Nordic House Track Listing:01.
