Watch & Listen
Týr is a folk metal band from the Faroe Islands. Their subject matter revolves almost entirely around old Nordic lore, mythology, and history, taking their name from the Norse god of law and justice. They signed a worldwide deal with Austria's Napalm Records in early 2006, while signed to the Faroese record label Tutl. In September of 2012, they signed a three album deal with Metal Blade Records.
Israeli band with roots in the Death/Doom Metal scene which has been adding progressively more and more Prog Rock and oriental elements (e.g. Israeli and Morrocan Folk) to their music in the course of their career.
Ghost Ship Octavius
Ghost Ship Octavius was formed in 2014 by guitarist Matt Wicklund (God Forbid, Himsa) and drummer Van Williams (Nevermore, Ashes of Ares, Pure Sweet Hell). After some searching for a singer the duo soon discovered what they were looking for in the very talented up and coming vocalist, guitarist Adōn Fanion. In April of 2014 the trio launched a KickStarter campaign and successfully raised from anticipating backers over 17k for their debut album. After the 45 day campaign the band fine tuned their sound with the help of producer/ guitarist ( 7 horns 7 eyes) Aaron Smith (envisage audio) and have come out the other end with 11 stunning tracks that are rich with a unique blend of melody, texture, atmosphere and groove. The group also asked bassist Dagna Silesia (The People Now) to lay down some bass tracks for the record and to join them for live shows when the time comes to hit the stage.
With the album releasing world wide March 23rd 2015, the inevitable live shows grow increasingly near!
Stay tuned as this Ghost ship is about to set sail!
