We had a grand time last night at the Viking Metal concert. Here’s the band we specifically went to see, the Faroese group Tyr, playing my favourite of their songs:
We also really enjoyed the band that played first, Metsatöll. They had a guy who played Baltic bagpipes, baybeh, as well as two different kinds of Estonian zyther, one of them (the moldpill, if I’m not mistaken) played with a bow. I was in obscure-instrument heaven! Now I want to find a way for someone to play a moldpill in the sequel, because I’m like that!
Anyway, a good time was had by all!
2 thoughts on “Viking metal!”
That was probably the most coherent Metal I’ve ever heard,-and it wasn’t even in English!
I love TYR. The first song I’ve heard from them was, “Hold the heathen hammer high”. After that I was hooked on viking metal!
