||The following update was issued on the SIG:AR:TYR's MySpace blog:
"I've been hard at work over the last several months on the third full-length SIG:AR:TYR album. I'm about 2/3 of the way done, and still aiming to be completed by the end of summer.
The new album will be called "Godsaga". Its theme centers around the concept of man transforming into a god, and Odin's sacrifice on the world tree Yggdrasil. This album is not a linear concept album such as "Sailing The Seas Of Fate", but each song deals with these similar themes.
Expect a darker, heavier, more intense and focused album, while still delivering the traditional SIG:AR:TYR hallmarks of previous works."

In other news, I've been asked to put together a playlist of Viking/Folk metal songs for the Blood Eagle Radio podcast show. I hope to play some of my favourites, but also a few more obscure tracks from bands that I think deserve more attention.
As an added bonus, to give everyone a taste of what is to come, we will also be playing a brand new track from the upcoming "Godsaga" album! Stay tuned for news on when this podcast will be released.
Hails to you all this Midsummer,
Till next time,

At the end of the show is the premiere of a brand new SIG:AR:TYR track "Blood Of The North" from the forthcoming album."
