Faroese Viking metallers Týr don't seem like they want to take a break as they're back with The Lay of Thrym, not long after their previous effort By the Light of the Northern Star. Týr is (more like, was) one of those rare bands that has managed to create their own sound in a genre where most others just try to get their share out of the hype by following the genre's basic formulas. On the other hand, Týr had a distinct progressive touch, utilize no death vocals and managed to blend this progressive/heavy metal successfully with their traditional Faroese music. This, however, has started to change recently.

Quite a good album. I would give it a 7 but because of the Arab Spring-themed lyrics, I'll make it 9.

The lyrics are very good. I'll vote it 10 anyways. Best album I've heard in a long time.

Really? In what songs? I've heard this one like 6 times, but I didn't notice anything.

I was greatly disappointed after listening to first few songs, but the second half of the album changed my opinion. This is quite a good album. Definitely not as good as its predecessors, but still worth listening to. For me the real highlights were the last two songs, and two songs with Danish lyrics are also very good.
