Thyrfing Streaming New Song Online

Thyrfing has delivered its very own brew of metal music since 1995. After six full-length albums and numerous live performances, the band is going to release "De Ödeslösa" on March 1st, 2013 via Noiseart Records. As a pretaste the band has released the track “Veners förfall," which can be heard in the player below.

Thyrfing guitarist Patrik Lindgren comments: "“Veners förfall” is a track we’re truly satisfied with and think it showcases the album in a great way. The song was actually written around the rather offbeat middle piano part – which I think is really different from how you usually put your piano in metal music. In the chorus we can also hear Toni Kocmut on choir vocals. Those who have been following the band through the years will surely recognize this as a familiar element of Thyring. So … here we go – hope you’ll enjoy the song and appreciate it as a first teaser of 'De ödeslösa.'"

Thyrfing will also be appearing on the upcoming Paganfest tour starting at the end of the month, with full details available here. More...
