W52 Project 2012 - Miikka Skaffari Music Photography

Tyr, 9/11/2012, DNA Lounge, San Francisco

It's not every week you get photos of half naked rockers from Faroe Islands. Tyr is one of very few bands that have more fans on Facebook than the whole population of their home country. This folk-metal band takes old Norse tales and turns them into metal songs. They have been getting more and more popular around the world and signed record deal with Metal Blade Records right after the tour where I had the privilege to photograph them.
