This is what Asatru Music should be! It is authentic enough to keep traditionalists interested and metal enough to rock to! As the title suggests, this is a concept album chronicling the ancient Norse version of the End of the World, from Balder’s death (“Brother’s Bane”) to Loki’s binding and eventual escape (“Lord of Lies”). The lyrics are fantastic as they chronicle these timeless stories while the music is varied and interesting. While “Wings of Time” does not really seem like part of the narrative, it is a truly inspiring song. Tyr has recently been cemented in my mind as one of the best bands currently recording today and this album is the proof!
