azhidahak For those who seek something deep and honest in Ambient/dungeon-synth genre, this is a very special record. The charming vocals of Helm from ‘empyrium’ featuring on this album, has given it a faint scent of NEOFOLK!! cant wait for my CD to arrive! Cheers from Montreal, Canada. Favorite track: Song Of The Rain.

Andrea Bartuz Isutra One of the best records I've heard in recent years. Epic, melancholy, melodious and majestic at the same time. Really a great job. Absolutely to have in your own collection.

After a promising debut recording in 2016, Turkish horde Tir returns three years later with a new offering entitled “Urd, Skuld & Verdandi”, an 11-track ordeal of what one could describe as classic Dungeon Synth, utterly atmospheric and evocative. Drinking from the ancient fountain led by entities such as Burzum and Mortiis, Tir portray a shadowy landscape filled with visions of mystery, an aura that embraces the cryptic and the arcane. Ethereal keyboard passages are intertwined with Folk overtones expressing the darkness and gloom of a long-forgotten past, a piercing and poignant musical and visual display.

Out on Repose Records on limited cassette and Digipak CD edition, “Urd, Skuld & Verdandi” stands as a full-on experience of powerful patterns of nature and nostalgia that will certainly take the listener on a startling journey through the unknown and beyond...

Track Name: Song Of The Rain
When I cry the hills laugh;
When I humble myself the flowers rejoice;
When I bow, all things are elated.

The field and the cloud are lovers
And between them I am a messenger of mercy.
I quench the thirst of one;
I cure the ailment of the other.

The voice of thunder declares my arrival;
The rainbow announces my departure.
I am like earthly life, which begins at
The feet of the mad elements and ends
Under the upraised wings of death.

I am the sigh of the sea;
The laughter of the field;
The tears of heaven.
Track Name: Tyr
Tyr is the god of war
Tyr norse god
Tyr is justice
Tyr son of Odin…
Track Name: Invisible Part Of Mountains
I am here,
you have called me 

and I am here

Here where my roots are 

in the land beneath the mountains 

in the dark woodlands down by the river

Where the graves are 

of the noblemen of my tribe

and of its wise women

Where your wind talks to the trees 

and carries your ravens to the mountains 

where the last of the Old Ones live

I am here,
 take possession of my heritage

and I step into the line of my ancestors

A wanderer I am,
just like you 
driven by the longing for insight

I chase through the worlds

The fire of my yearning for wisdom 

burns my fetters and I rise 

your raven eye is with me

I am here, Odin

you have called me

I follow the way that you reveal to me.
Track Name: Memories In The Shadow
Nameless creatures ascend from silken fog.
The sounds of whispering night meet your ear,
Implanting incomprehensible riddles in your mind.

The mystery of what has not yet transpired flees from the blade of early morning’s light.

Memory remains as a shadow.
