New Track "Blood Of Heroes" Streaming From Týr

Týr is streaming the new track "Blood of Heroes." The song appears on the band's upcoming new release "Valkyrja," the first for new label Metal Blade Records. The new album is slated for release on September 13th (G/A/S), September 16th (EU) and September 17th (North America).

"Valkyrja" is a concept album with a story line based loosely around an anonymous Viking age warrior who leaves his woman and goes off to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Fólkvangr, the home of Freyja—the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women. Frontman and founder Heri Joensen goes on to explain: “the woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of Women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women."

The album was produced by Jacob Hansen and the drums were recorded by Nile drummer George Kollias. Check out "Blood of Heroes" here:
