30.) Tyr- Valkyrja

Tyr is one of those bands that isn't afraid to show their roots, and their roots are Folk and Viking Metal in the lyrics, and Iron Maiden and Pantera in the music. This album is no different, but that is a good thing, it's a great combination. It's fast, it's heavy, it's cheesy at times especially with lyrics like Mare of My Night. It also features George Kollias on some of his slowest playing ever, stuff that isn't 300bpm Blast Beats in 5/8 (haha) Overall, while not the best Tyr album, it is a damn solid album that kicks ass, and that's all you really need in a Tyr album.
