Tyr Streaming Full New Album "Valkyrja"

Tyr is streaming brand new album, "Valkyrja," all weekend. The album can be heard in its entirety beginning today (Friday the 13th) through Monday, September 16th. Check it out below or at the Metal Blade website. The label comments:

"Fans: this is your chance to hear previously unreleased tracks, including The Lay of Our Love, which features Leaves' Eyes vocalist Liv Kristine. Plus, Tyr's covers of Iron Maiden's Where Eagles Dare and Pantera's Cemetary Gate, which about.com called 'downright amazing, faithfully capturing the emotional essence of the original.' Additionally, George Kollias was enlisted to handle drum recording duties on Valkyrja."

In terms of what the band hopes fans take away from the album, bassist Gunnar H. Thomsen states, "I hope they will enjoy it and they like the new direction as well as (guitarist) Terji's bigger involvement in writing and George's drumming. We had a more upbeat direction without changing Tyr's style."

"Valkyrja," the seventh full-length album from Tyr, will be released next week in North America. Tyr is on tour now with Finntroll and Skalmold in Europe. Dates are available below.

There seems to be a typo on the tour dates: Hungary, Colorado, Romania....one of these things is not like the others.

What a vicious new album... Kollias adds all those extra double-kick sweeteners, Terji finally gets to faithfully cover Pantera on record (his CFH tattoo is the most identifiable on him), and Heri grabs his balls for the highest falsetto on a Tyr record so far! Whoah.
