Simon Blackwood Bloody Hell... This is spine tinglingly good. It's beautiful. It's peaceful and haunting. it could quite easily be music of Rivendell, and just as easy be the lament of a much loved warrior in Norse times.
I listened to other stuff but I find the metal music is offensive when accompanying an angelic voice. but this is perfect.

Alec "2Rikov" Tyurikov Epic tracks! Very inspired by her instrumentals and vocal...Not so "blackened", as previous works, but very impressive though! Favorite track: Måneblôt.

erlendi På sett og vis grenseoverskridende. Ja, man har jo hørt titalls grenseoverskridende plater i grenselandet mellom folkemusikk og BM, men din vri på det skiller seg ut fra mengden. Stå på og ikke slutt å levere musikk hvis intensitet framkaller gåsehud. Favorite track: Ulvinde.

about

Mareridt (translation: Nightmare) is the highly anticipated sophomore full-length from renowned Danish composer and multi-instrumentalist MYRKUR. Recorded between Copenhagen and Seattle with producer Randall Dunn (Marissa Nadler, Earth, Sunn O))), Boris, Wolves In The Throne Room), Mareridt is a rich juxtaposition of the dark and the light; the moon and the mother earth; the witch and the saint. MYRKUR explores deeper into the mysterious and the feminine with 11 tracks that further progress her visionary blend of metal with gorgeous, stirring melodies, dark folk passages, choral arrangements and superb, horrific beauty. Further taking MYRKUR to new artistic heights are lyrics in multiple languages, an unforgettable collaboration with Chelsea Wolfe and an array of special instrumentation including violin, mandola, folk drums, nyckelharpa (an ancient Swedish key harp), and Kulning (an ancient Scandinavian herding call). Mareridt is a profound manifestation of nightmares that demonstrates MYRKUR as one of the truly exceptional artists of our time.

about

Myrkur Denmark

Though the word "myrkur" means "darkness" in Icelandic, MYRKUR (aka Amalie Bruun)'s music is far from monochromatic. With its distinct sense of Nordic isolation, MYRKUR's compositions are at once savage and delicate. Choral and folk elements abound, lending the music a mystical, legendary quality and an untouchable equilibrium between dark and light. ... more

Track Name: Mareridt
i en sortgrøn skov
hvor solens lys ej trænger ind
her ligger jeg i det mørke træhus
hvor støvet hvirvler om mit ansigt
en kronhjort svæver deroppe
dens øjne er så sorte
og fulde af raseri
i voldsomt fart den falder ned
den vil knuse mine knogler
gennemspidde mit bryst
i det lille hus jeg ligger alene
men jeg hører nogen hoste
bag det mørke kammers lukkede port
derinde ligger en død kone
hun pludselig farer op mod mig
jeg falder for hendes fødder
Og på det støvede stengulv
jeg overgiver mig til dig
Track Name: Måneblôt
Dét er rummet de gør det i
Det skal koste penge nu
Du åbner munden

I bare my teeth
You touch my skin
I open wide and let you come in
Howling howling praying to the sun

Åh min vakre Sora
Always coming down
Beskidte hore du fortjener det, alt de har gjort ved dig

In pale moonlight
We bathe in blue
A sacrifice of life born new
They fear our kind
They hunt us down
They hear our screams
Like animals

Donna, donna always come around
Oh mi kona kona always coming down
Donna donna they will burn you down
Oh mi kona kona they will make you drown
Track Name: The Serpent
Look in my eyes
you’ll always see a serpent
run from the dark

you’ll always always feel it
down your spine
try me and suffer
impure from holy wood
where angels fall

Cause I put a spell on you
And I broke your book of rules
I put a spell on you
And I am the truth

Flooding your gates
my storm is a disturbance
can you explain
your doorway’s always hiding

try me and suffer
impure from holy wood
where angels fall

Cause I put a spell on you
And I broke your book of rules
I put a spell on you
And I am the truth
Track Name: Crown
Born at night
Many are called, few are chosen

open mouth
swallow up the lakes frozen

Am I adored?
je suis votre amour
am I a whore?
cause you are the drug
solitary are the things i know
in my garden they leave me alone

Soft as blood
an open heart holds no reason
slice me up
Cause your love was steeped in treason

Am I adored?
je suis votre amour
am i your whore?
cause you are the drug

solitary are the things i know
in my garden they leave me alone

sleep little darling
mother virgin
darkness serpent come to feed me
sleep little darling
bathed in moonlight

on her head a crown of twelve stars
Track Name: Elleskudt
i nåleskoven så prægtig og stor
en liden elleskudt pige der bor
af iskrystaller er hendes hår
men når mørket kalder isen slå skår
Little eyes following me now
little eyes following me now
Han hører kaldet langt ude på fjeld
Den væne fæstemø hun sang sig ihjel
Han løb mod skoven for at frelse sin brud
men fra underverdenen slap hun aldrig ud
Little eyes following me now
little eyes following me now
Track Name: De Tre Piker
der stod tre piker på det høgande fjell
såg utover dybe hav
der ser de et skip komme seilende
der ser de et skip komme seilende
som på det tre grever var

den aller yngste greven
som der på skipet var
han ville visst trolova sig
han ville visst trolova sig
enn sjølv så ung han var

så tok han av seg ringen
den var av gullet rent
tak den, tak den du vennen min
tak den, tak den du vennen min
tak den og bli som min

men hva vil min moder sige
når jeg kommer hjem igjen
sig at, sig at du har funne den
sig at, sig at du har funne den
i skogens grønne li
Track Name: Funeral (featuring Chelsea Wolfe)
We don't see eye to eye
So I will be there at your funeral
I've been waiting for this day
So I'll be wearing white
At your funeral

Then I find
Find my peace
When you're buried underneath
10 feet of dirt
I'll dance around in my skirt
At your funeral
Track Name: Ulvinde
Ja med ondt skal ondt fordrives
I en svunden krop
Buret inde som et dyr de lukker aldrig op
Fanget i en dårekiste, drypper af mit blod
Mørkets trofaste lakajer lænket til min fod

Norge Norge Norge

Solen er gået bort
I nattens regn og vind
Min barndoms tunge port
Låst i mit kolde sind

Langt ned i de dybe dale
Der spejler sig i søen
Det er her at jeg vil leve, det er her at jeg vil dø
Under flodens askegrene finder jeg min sjæl
Skyggerne forstenes, lyset slår dem jo ihjel

Norge Norge Norge

SHE-WOLF

Yes destroy evil with evil
In a sunken body
Caged like an animal they never unlock
Caught in a Dårekiste, dripping with my blood
Faithful lackeys of darkness chained to my foot

Norway Norway Norway

The sun has passed away
In the night's rain and wind
My childhood heavy port
Locked in my mind so cold

Far down in the deep valleys
That mirrors in the elv
This is where I will live, this is where I will die
Underneath the river’s ash branches, I find my soul
The shadows petrify for the light shall kill them

Norway Norway Norway
Track Name: Børnehjem
The Demons have always lived inside me
They always watch me, they want to play
But not today no! Today you must be like a normal girl
But I could not do what they told me to because I wanted to kill them
Like the demons have told me to do, I wanted to make sure they all died so I could be alone and
nobody would hurt me

But you see once they made me do those things that you never want to speak about again and
you won’t even remember. Thats what they tell you, you dont remember this no! But my demons
do, they remember everything. Everything. And they will never forget what you did to me, never.
