Biography

GMM2018 is proud to welcome its first band from the Faroe Islands because the Faroese folk/viking metal band Týr has been added to the bill! Most tracks are sung in Faroese and musically they rely heavily on melodic guitar work and catchy vocal harmonies. Most of the time they forego the use of traditional folk instruments, making their music somewhat heavier than most of their peers. Their music transcends genre boundaries as they feel genre conventions only lead to prejudice. Týr’s lyrics centre around Viking tales, mythology and history. (#GMM18)
