Emerging from the darkness of Scandinavia comes onewoman black metal project, MYRKUR. Combining the rawness of second wave black metal bands like Ulver and Darkthrone with a natural sonic, ethereal beauty, MYRKUR has created a wholly unique perspective on the genre.
Hailing from Denmark, MYRKUR signed to Relapse Records earlier this year and will release her eponymous debut EP on September 16th respectively. With a distinct sense of Nordic isolation, MYRKUR’s debut is a feminine yet definitively brutal record that has burst onto the scene like a Valkyrie into battle. Shrouded in darkness and mystic elegance…this is black metal unlike anything that has been heard before.
Pre-orders are now available via Relapse HERE.
Also, Pitchfork has premiered a track from the forthcoming EP, entitled “Nattens Barn.” You can stream that track
