2 stars The second album from Tyr takes up the thread from the debut album and expands it in all directions. The artwork tells me this is Viking Metal. That is partly wrong. This album has everything and that it's major flaw.

The first two tracks are good medium hard viking metal. It is nowhere as hard as Enslaved, the kings of this genre. In fact; Tyr cannot be compared to Enslaved at all. Tyr is nowhere as hard as Enslaved. Tyr is based on folk rock and heavy metal. And as I also found out on this album; indie rock.

The first two tracks The Edge and Regin Smiğur are good folk rock based metal anthems. Then the album branches out in all directions. German heavy metal and indie rock. Parts of this album sounds like Paradise Lost in their indie rock days. The quality drops to the ocean floor and so does my interest in this album. This album is so varied that I more than once has actually had to investigate if I have got a faulty CD from Amazon. But reviews on other websites has confirmed my worst fears that there is indeed nothing wrong with the CD. The indie rock that fills my ears is actually from this album.

The quality is not good. This album is also too diverse and difficult to follow through to the end. The first two songs are great. The rest is a major let down. Tyr is a better band than this ?
