TYR "Eric The Red"
  • Album: Eric The Red
  • Year: 2006
  • Label: NAPALM
  • Artist: 

This project makes no sense to me! The masculine voice is a pretty fine one, normal, rather sung and full of inspired inflexions. The main feeling about it: too light! It is announced as Viking Metal coming right from Faroe Islands! My way of apprehending it brings out a mix-up of commercial Metal with melodic Epic trends, also Power or even Progressive features, in which the key sound is defined by warrior-like guitars and choirs. The album is long and complex and, it would be unfair rating it as a feeble one! It hasn't inspired me at all, nor created a soaring state of mind! I wasn't convinced by these musicians, in spite their experience and numerous concerts held as far as I know... Too luminous and transparent for my underground tastes! But who knows, you might see things differently?
