Terji Skibenæs began playing guitar at the age of thirteen. He received some lessons from his older brother, but is mainly self taught. In April 2001, Terji Skibenæs’ first band, Flux, played in the same contest as Týr. That’s where Terji Skibenæs and Heri Joensen found out they liked the same kind of music. Terji Skibenæs was contacted in December 2001 by Heri Joensen and asked to join Týr.
Since then he has recorded multiple albums and toured the world for several years with TÝR.
Now he has recorded a full length instrumental debut album which will be released early 2016.
