NEW SIGNING / Thyrfing
THYRFING emerged from the ever-growing underground scene in Sweden back in 1995. After seven full-length albums and numerous live performances all over the world, the band have gained a strong following over the years and an exquisite standing within the metal scene.
They are considered one of the top bands within the so-called viking/pagan metal genre – but on the other hand, Thyrfing are so much more with their truly outstanding and self-contained musical offering.
The band is now finally about to start the production of their next album, scheduled to be released through Despotz Records in spring 2021.
Guitarist and founding member Patrik Lindgren says: ”It feels great to finally be back and ready to record and release new music with Thyrfing again. We know that many, just as ourselves, have been anticipating this for a long time now. We are also confident in our choice of Despotz Records as partner in all this, and that they will provide us a great platform and navigation in the musical landscape of this age.”
Carl-Marcus Gidlöf, co-founder and active partner at Despotz Records comments: “This is a very proud moment for us at Despotz, having followed these pioneers of pagan metal since the ninetees and be able to now work their eight full-length album closely with them, making strategies, planning online/offline activities (incl. our large in-house photo/film-studio), and utilizing the strength of our great network of PR-partners and the distribution setup we’ve got with INgrooves/Universal worldwide.”
