Týr (locally: [tʰʊɪːɹ]) is a Faroese folk metal band. Their subject matter revolves almost entirely around Viking 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.

Týr announced on 12 May 2013 via their official website as well as their Facebook, Twitter and Myspace pages that they had parted ways with long-time drummer Kári Streymoy, owing to the back injury he had received in 2008 which had affected his drumming. On May 15, 2013, they announced that renowned metal drummer George Kollias will record drums for their seventh album Valkyrja. Amon Djurhuus enters temporarly in the band, once again, for the tour with Finntroll between September and October 2013.
