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...

Jotunheim Festival Canceled

The 2010 edition of the Jotunheim festival was scheduled to feature bands such as Thyrfing, Manegarm, Vreid, and more. The Jotunheim organizers have now issued the following statement about canceling the festival:

"We must inform you that we have unfortunately been forced to cancel the first edition of Jotunheim Festival! Jotunheim Festival is canceled due to apparent pressure from Antifa who believed that the line-up included bands that advocated fascism or were affiliated with fascistic political movements. This was completely untrue, with not a single band having ever expressed such political sympathies (if any), only pride in their heritage (though of course, any such display immediately gets Antifa up in arms anyway). Nor was there any statement made on behalf of the festival that specified any particulars about who could and could not attend, certainly not on racial grounds.

"Because of the Antifa groups, Northwind Promotion declines to do concerts and festivals in Croatia, and in the future will be focused on the external market where there are no organizations that will charge based on nonexistent facts. For a refund of the tickets, please contact us by e-mail info@jotunheim-festival.com."

Thyrfing Clarifies Festival Appearances

Thyrfing have announced they will not be appearing at the Metalfest Open Air festivals in Germany and Austria, as was previously reported. The statement from the band is as follows:

"This is an official statement from Thyrfing regarding some gigs that have been announced (e.g. Metalfest Open Airs in Germany & Austria). Obviously there has been a misunderstanding between promoters and local arrangers confirming these shows. We were in negotiation about them, but had to withdraw and turn down the offers for various reasons. We never confirmed these shows, but obviously they were announced anyway. This is of course very unfortunate, and we are sorry about any inconvenience it might have caused, but also it's something that is totally beyond our control."
