TÝR launch video for “Sunset Shore” ahead of The Tour from Hel with Heidevolk and Dalriada
As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, The Faroe Islands’ ruthlessly melodic and irresistibly compelling progressive folk metal band TYR will release their eighth full-length, ‘Hel’, via Metal Blade Records on March 8th.
TÝR have also announced a full European tour in support of their new album. On “The Tour from Hel” TÝR will be joined by Heidevolk and Dalriada. See all dates further down this page.
For a preview of the album, a video for the new single ‘Sunset Shore’ (directed by mihasznafilm.com) can be viewed below:
TÝR vocalist / guitarist Heri Joensen comments: “In early January, immediately after spending our holidays in the Faroes, Gunnar and I traveled to Hungary to our bandmates, Tadeusz and Attila, in Budapest. Finally, it was time to shoot another video, our first since 2014, and we’re very happy to present this one to you!
“The Hungarian film production crew, Mihaszna Film, arranged the trips, starting from Budapest and going first to the Julian alps in Slovenia. In the fields and rivers of the snowy mountains we had some amazing scenery for ‘overworld’ part of the video. A few days later we traveled on to the caves of Szent-István in northern Hungary, and deep underground we found some dark and gloomy caves to be the perfect backdrop for the underworld part of this video.
“Terji wrote ‘Sunset Shore’, for our upcoming album, ‘Hel’ – to be released on March 8th, and he plays the solo on the album version, but not in this video. We decided it was the perfect opportunity to introduce you all to the amazing talent of Attila Vörös, who recorded his own version of the solo a few days before the video shooting. The lyrics, written by me, are about how the mind can sometimes be a windswept and weatherworn landscape, and how the only thing to do, in spite of hopelessness and despair, is to aim for a better place and to work towards better times.
“We hope you enjoy the result!”
TÝR have also announced a full European tour in support of their new album ‘Hel’.
