Tyrs first album is a masterpiece. Anyone who likes heavy metal should pick this CD up now.
Out of print for many years, TYR’s early musical signs of life are almost as secretive as the band’s reclusive homeland, the Faeroe Islands. Yet fans of TYR will finally be able to also embrace their early works. The re-release ”How Far to Asgaard” comprises not only the debut album of the same title, but also the original version of the single ”Ólavur Riddararós” (2002). Both releases deliver the ingredients that fans of the Viking Metal genre have come to love and expect, including sweeping vocal lines, diverse songwriting, and extraordinary musicianship, as well as new artwork that fits in perfectly with the album’s lyrical theme. Witness the birth of a Viking Metal legend!

I Just Recently Bought this CD and i really enjoy it. as far as Tyrs best work, 3/5 I reccomend By Lght Of The Northern Star, which is a better portrayal of tyrs work. though, you wont go wrong with any Tyr if you are looking for Nordic/Icelandic music!
