      Ragnarok is Tyr's 3rd album, released in 2006 on Napalm Records having moved away from their previous deal with the small Faroese record label Tutl.

      There were good and bad aspects of Tyr's 2003 album Eric the Red but their 2006 follow up Ragnarok certainly wasn''t put together in a hurry and the band had plenty of time to focus on the good aspects.

      Perhaps the things that they found good and the things that I found good are different because I would say that Ragnarok is nowhere near on par with Eric The Red, what it has done is taken the poppy theme of Eric The Red which seems even tamer than their Proclaimers type vocals previously used.

      The lyrics in Faroese are incomprehendible to the non-speaking majority and are a bit too songbirdish and twee for my liking. The band particularly seem to boast of eclectic tracks but there's very little to seperate the various styles used on this album and I personally find that it gets a bit tedious despite the occasional good albeit not spectacular guitar solo. The band have tended to stick with their formula of using well known (at least in the Faroe Islands) traditional songs but haven't added Danish and Irish tracks like the previous album.
