Im Vorfeld des kommenden Livealbums hat die nordische Metal Truppe TÝR, ihr Livevideo zu ‘Hold the Heathen Hammer High’ veröffentlicht.  Der Clip zeigt die Performance zusammen mit dem Symphony Orchestra der Faroe Inseln vom 08. Februar 2020 im  Nordic House Tórshavn.

TÝRs Bandopf Heri Joensen erklärt:
The lyrics of ‚Hold the Heathen Hammer High‘ are about upholding the old Northern ways, but in a modern fashion, not religiously but culturally. The original video was very anti-Christian, although that was never the main message of the song. This new symphonic live version, with the symphony orchestra Holding the Heathen Hammer High with us, will bring out the modern heathen in us all!“ und fährt fort:

Working with the Symphony Orchestra was without a doubt one of the highlights of our careersThe feeling of sheer sophisticated power behind us was extraordinarily uplifting. We were awed by how well the songs worked in a symphonic setting.

Die mit 18 Songs wahrhaftige Langrille ”A Night at the Nordic House” erscheint am 18. März.
