Otyg is a folk metal band from Sweden, featuring Andreas Hedlund, the frontman for Vintersorg.

During their existence, Otyg released two albums with songs written in traditional Scandinavian folk style, featuring traditional Scandinavian instruments not frequently heard in heavy metal, such as the keyed fiddle and willow flute. All the lyrics were written in Swedish. Vintersorg had unofficially expressed that Otyg didn't find anymore inspiration to resume with the project[citation needed].

Two songs from the band were used in the MMORPG Granado Espada: "Huldran" and "Trollslottet".[citation needed]

In an interview in May 2012 Andreas Hedlund stated that Otyg is now reactivated and a new album is going to be released.[1]
