Faroe Islands-based Viking metallers TÝR unveil their newest single, “Dragons By no means Die.” The monitor comes by the use of the band’s gorgeous ninth full-length studio album, Battle Ballads, set for launch on April twelfth by way of Steel Blade Data!

As soon as topped, “highly effective, heroic and memorable,” by New Noise and lauded by Exclaim for, “expertly balancing energy and demise metallic” and perfecting, “the Viking metallic method,” with Battle Ballads, TÝR has crafted an album that resounds with their trademark Viking metallic sound — a crushing, hovering, batch of classical embellished songs that conjure photos of galloping steeds, clashing swords, and hard-fought victories. On the identical time, the band has experimented with new writing kinds and musical strategies and created songs which can be structurally less complicated, but musically extra variegated. For founding frontman Heri Joensen, it’s a transparent illustration of how he plans to proceed exploring completely different approaches sooner or later whereas staying true to the spirit of thunderous Viking metallic.

We consciously determined to make this a extra direct album with songs which can be simpler for listeners to get immediately than among the stuff on our final album, or perhaps even on our 2006 album Ragnarok, which was very progressive,” says Joensen. “With Battle Ballads, there are progressive parts right here and there, however we tried to maintain the songs primarily based on one or two musical concepts every, and work on every little thing from there. So, in a manner, it’s extra concise than our final album, however it’s extra epic due to the symphonic parts.”

There’s no escaping the masterfully meticulous mix of melody and savagery on Battle Ballads. Notes Joensen of the band’s “Dragons By no means Die” single, “The music begins with a protracted harmonic crescendo on drums and guitar paying homage to classical Deep Purple, then shifts an jap impressed melodic journey again in time with wordless singalong components, going right into a rhythmically easy and stomping verse a couple of gold-grabbing dragon and a protagonist set on defeating it. It’s a quick and riveting refrain. The metallic story progresses and culminates right into a face melting solo. With the final refrain, the protagonist finds that changing into wealthy past measure simply makes him the following dragon.”

As a lot as TÝR would have appreciated to put in writing, rehearse, and document with a symphony, scheduling conflicts made it unattainable. So that they did the following neatest thing. Joensen despatched the band’s ten thunderous compositions to a Danish colleague, Lars Winther, in England, who added the orchestral samples, paying shut consideration to the tone and tempo of the songs so the violins, violas, cellos, woodwinds, and horns complimented the normal rock devices. When the samples had been all in place, the album sounded spectacular, however the tones weren’t completely blended. So, TÝR despatched the album to veteran producer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, The Black Dahlia Homicide, Amaranthe) in Denmark to place collectively the ultimate combine.
