Týr comments on the success of Valkyrja thus far: "Needless to say, we're very pleased with the co-operation with Metal Blade, and we thank Brian and his crew for the amazing work they have done for us and our new album. We're thrilled that our new album has been so well received by the reviewers and the fans, and the chart entries are just a fantastic bonus on top of it all. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who bought our album.”
About Valkyjra: Valkyrja is a concept album with a story line based loosely around a nameless Viking age warrior who leaves his woman and goes off to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Fólkvangr, the home of Freyja—the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women. Frontman and founder Heri Joensen goes on to explain; "the woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of Women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women."
Valkyrja, the seventh full-length album from Týr, will be released on September 17th in North America, and September 13th/16th in Europe/UK.
