Tyr 2

I've been meaning to post a few pics from this for a few weeks. Yet another Tyr show! This one was at a Nordic Isles festival about a month ago. Most of the people there were from the Faroes and Iceland who weren't the usual metal types, although there also some Danish and German metal fans that made it to this show too. Lots of fun in a very casual atmosphere. 95% of the people there were drunk but there were no fights, no attitudes, no lame posers trying to out cool each other. When the band took a break they came out in the crowd and drank and talked to people like they were at home among friends. A great night of fun, Odinist metal and love for the true northern culture.

Here are a few pics taken by my wife from a show Tyr did right down the street at Christiania recently. Tyr is a GREAT folkish Odinist/Asatru metal band from the Faroe Islands. The Faroes are a group of remote islands that are technically a part of Denmark but they have their own language and their own distinct culture and way of life. The Faroese language closely resembles old Norse. The lyrics of many of Tyrs songs are in Faroese.

Tyr on Myspace -Go here and watch the videos to Hail to the Hammer and Regin Smiur. I get chills every time I hear these songs. Real Odinic music! Hails and love to all Father Odin and the mighty Thor! Some of us will never forget! Our Gods are not dead! We are eternal!

P.S- Check this out. 'Gandkvæði Tróndar' by Janus Djurhuus. Translated from Faroese its a call to the Gods and spirits of nature to destroy the churches and invasion of demonic Christian tyranny to the Faroes.

Gandkvæði Tróndar

Hevjið í homrum
harðmælta kvæðið,
villu valkyrjur,
vetrarins børn,
tit mínar frælsu,
froysandi hvirlur,
føddar av ódn.

Hastið í hernað
hamranmna døtur,
vekið til veldis
vilt glaðustrok;
gravið frá grunni
goysandi orrusturok.

Ramar eg risti
rúnir, ið rinda
ravni ræ.
Sanna skal Sigmundur,
Tróndur trøllsterkur kvað.

Verjast skal valhøll,
ið vølvur veittu
Miklum norðlanda monnum til mið.
Eydnast at inna
ei skal Signumdi
Eystlanda sið.

Fjallfríðu Føroyar,
ramasta rúnin,
ritað av gudum
um einstakra rætt!
Trygdareið Tróndur
hann treystligt at verja
svór síni ætt.

Hevjið í homrum
harðmælta kvæðið,
villu valkyrjur
veiti mær vørn.
Fram móti Sigmundi
skip hansar sorandi,
land honum forðandi,
fram móti kristni
kirkjurnar brótandi,
Tróndur til Tórs og til Óðins er blótandi,
høgt kvøður heiðin ørn.

J.H.O. Djurhuus (1881 - 1948)
Trond's Magical Chanting

Raise the roar
of rage from the rocks,
wild valkyries
from winter born,
fly my freeborn
furious whirlwinds,
born in the storm.

Ride in rage
daugthers of rocks,
wake up the wildest
waves of the sea,
raise from the sea-beds
raving madness and fear.

I carve ruthless
runes that reach
the ravens rape.
Sigmund shall suffer,
Trond the sorcerer sang.

Stand up for Valhall,
granted by gods,
to the great Norsemen as ultimate bait.
Sigmund shall never
succeed to impose
the East-landers faith.

Mountainous Faeroes
the ranciest runes
written by gods
about human rights!
Oath of allegience
Trond made in truth
for all in his sight

Raise the roaring
rage from the rocks,
wild valkyries
protect my rights.
Storm agains Sigmund,
ship wreck his vessels,
keep him from land.
Storm Christianity,
churches and vanity,
Trond prays for Thor's and Odin's insanity,
the heathen eagle fares high.
