TYR — Regin Smidur

The album "Eric the Red" bases almost every song on Faroese or Norwegian lore, and is revetted in the garb of the Folk Metal genre. Its approach unmistakenly creates a very true Viking Metal, as the video to "Regin Smiður" (Regin, the Blacksmith) proves.

BTW "Regin Smidur" is an authentic folk song. Tyr even used an original melody (just arranged it on electric guitar).
Luke Irvine 31 декабря 2018 года в 13:17
For that matter, here is an English translation of the lyrics too:


Regin Blacksmith
Will you now listen
whilst I will sing.
About the rich kings
that I will now speak of

Greyfell carried the gold from the heath
He swung his sword in wrath
Sigfried defeated the dragon
Greyfell carried the gold from the heath

Hundings sons at war
they did damage there
Poison was in the sword
they carried against me

Fafnir is the name of the dragon
that lies on the Glittering Heath
Regin is a good blacksmith
to few is he faithfull

He was on fields of play
rages amongst men
Tears up large oak trunks
he maims some to Hel

On the easten side under the mound
where heroes grow in numbers
Dark is this sad day
down in the mould to go

A man stepped forward upon the field
Noone knew him
He had a wide hat on his head
and a Finnish bow in his hand

A man stepped forward upon the field
raging with his sword
He had one eye
and his trouser legs were buttoned

The dragon has slithered of the gold
it is rumoured widely
Sigfried seats himself on Greyfells back
he prepares himself to ride

Greyfell carried the gold from the heath
He swung his sword in wrath
Sigfried defeated the dragon
Greyfell carried the gold from the heath

The only thing savage about vikings is how they fought. The Romans called them savages in the same way that SJW''s call all white people racist, just a way to unite the people against a common enemy

+Gabe Grothaus Close. What you are calling Germans here are actually Proto-Germanic people, who came from Scandinavia, just like the Caucasian Russians, the Goths, the Norman people, Anglo-Saxons, the majority of the British, and the Icelandic, as well as everyone in the Baltic Peninsula. Google "Proto-Germanic Migration".

But yes, they brought the Æsir and Vanir with them, whose names evolved like Odin here, Óðinn there, Woden, Wotan, etc.
Bulgarian Lion 24 октября 2015 года в 12:12
+Manguch Beg Everyone else actually called them Greeks, because that's what they were for the most part. They themselves called themselves Romans, as they thought themselves as a continuation of the Roman Empire, which was in many ways true.
Tamer of Horses 29 сентября 2015 года в 13:34
+Leonidas Andriotis
I was talking about other nations, calling Byzantines Romans. Since the word Byzantium or Byzantine wasnt actually that common in that era, shitton of other people also called them the Romans.
Leonidas Andriotis 27 сентября 2015 года в 15:43
+Manguch Beg That's right. Like all empires, the Byzantine empire was multi-national. The ruling culture however, was Greek. Furthermore, like you said, the barbarian kingdoms of western Europe also callled themselves Roman, but their culture was decidedly Germanic/Gothic with a bit of Roman influence, while the Byzantines thought themselves the "continuation" of Rome and in a sense, they were.
Tamer of Horses 27 сентября 2015 года в 12:50
+Leonidas Andriotis No, not just Byzantines called themselves Roman, shitton of other people did. Plus, not all Byzantines were Greek. A lot of different people lived in the empire, including real Romans(aka latins). Plus the ruling dynasties were from different nations

About the rich kings

Greyfell carried the gold away from the heath
He swung his sword in wrath

Greyfell carried the gold away from the heath

Regin is a good blacksmith,
To few is he faithful

Greyfell carried the gold away from the heath

Greyfell carried the gold away from the heath

He was on the fields of play,
Rages amongst men
He tears up large oak trunks,
He maims some to Hell

Where heroes grow in numbers

Down in mould to go

Without knowing anything about the video, this is most likely a bigger vikingfair/festival where lots of different re-enactment and warrior-groups get together, usually from all over Europe. And I think in most cases most of the groups are not paid, they are also not trained actors, most of these guys just have this as a hobby.

I don't know why vikings are always depicted wearing chain or ringmail when they actually for the most part wore leather or fur.

 Here it is called lake, bog, swamp or other iron. Depending where it is found.

And everything in nature is pretty (and interesting). Even if it kills you :)

Mail was used by the more well to do, and by the so called viking age of ca. 800-1000 pretty common. And as traders and plunderers many made rather well. And iron- and steelworking was well known in the Nordics.

These were no standing army/militia commoners these movies depict. But rather the bold and brave adventurers.

Victorian era and Frazetta bullshit.
Vikings for the majority wore common linen and wool clothing.
Linen and wool was made into padded jacks which worked well as armour.
Those who could afford it or picked up from the dead wore mail armour or lamellar.
Ring mail is nonsense - it was (chain)mail armour.
Joona Vainio 08 ноября 2014 года в 23:19
Depends. As many have already said, some of it was loot. But that is NOT to say they weren't able to make metal armour. It was called iron age, after all. And when speaking of Nordics, Iron Age began well before the "Viking Age" of something like 800 onwards. This is about 1000 years later than in Asterix.

As prolly in Norse sagas as well, Finnish runos repeatedly mention all the significant persons and their frontline soldiers (i.e. not peasants, but as close as "knights" you get in the Nordic 'democratic monarchy') having both mail and swords. Poorer had to do with spears and padding. A seasoned battle veteran is more valuable an asset than his equipment, so I wouldn't be surprised if the local lords did their utmost to equip them well. One might also consider that the raiding parties and adventurers these movies usually depict were crack troops - not some local militia.

As for archaelogical finds, it is clear both western (Scandinavian) and eastern (Finnish) Varangians knew how to forge high carbon steel and layered blades. The ancient and only way to make the ubiquitous Finnish puukko being a deceivingly puny example. And Iron ore was readily available as the lakes and swamps of Fennoscandia were rich in it so no real mining ops were even necessary.

The Norsemen actually plundered all of the nearby countries. They had the most gold and precious metals and access to a virtually unlimited supply of iron. The mountain ranges in Norway are extremely rich in iron to the point were Norse blacksmiths could take the moss in the valleys and super heat them in fires to get an iron ingot (look it up, it's true). So yes, most of them were heavily armored and had excellent weapons (that's why they always won and had little opposition).

Why is the name of this song Regin( the blacksmith) when the song is about Sigurd defeating the dragon Fafnir xD? The clip doesn't even make any sense with the story.
TheSuluhope 27 июня 2016 года в 11:34
Because the song has a lot more verses in the original version. I have a version with 87 verses. Regin the Smith is in some of them. Regin shows up in verse 19 where Hjørdis is told to send the broken pieces of Sigmund's sword to Regin so he can forge a new on to the child she is carrying. In verse 40 the now grown Sigurd travels to Regin and the main part of the story starts to unfold and ofc. Sigurd kills Regin in the end. You can probably find versions with even more verses.

Latin? Do you even know history. Faroese is descended from an Old West Norse language, brought there by norwegian vikings. Norwegian, Icelandic and Faroese have since then split into different languages and is not the same as what it was back then, which is why we cant understand eachother anymore.

if tyr were to compose their music into complete orchestra it could be done. they do have a large band but hollywood uses full orchestra's that is the difference... but i totally hear ya.. tyr's music could go with many great film scenes
Hans Peters 04 ноября 2013 года в 18:37 0
Because Hollywood is nothing more than Jews at all, the filth of mankind.
Using musi like from Týr would emersively work against their own evil plans.
Instead they are producing films like "Thor", where they put all European
pride to them in the dirt.
