execute_epicurus Myrkur courageously responds to those who questioned her authenticity by tearing out their hearts. These minimalistic renditions of her earlier work show that the core of her success is excellent songwriting. Favorite track: Dybt i Skoven.

Vladimir Poutine I liked M., liked it a lot in fact, but Myrkur has really come into her own here. As far as I'm concerned this isn't really any less metal than her previous album- it's just stripped away the extraneous bits (tired riffs and such) and let the star of the show, which was always her lovely voice, take center stage. Plus, the acoustics are stunning. This be good. Favorite track: Song To Hall Up High.

about

On the one year anniversary of her critically-acclaimed, masterful debut full-length 'M,' Danish black metal artist MYRKUR unveils a captivating live recording from the historic Emanuel Vigeland Mausoleum in Oslo, Norway. Aptly titled 'Mausoleum', the album features beautifully dramatic & stripped down acoustic reinventions of seven songs from 'M' plus one brand new song and a Bathory cover; all accompanied by the Norwegian Girls Choir and Håvard (ex-Ulver) on guitar. Captured in a cold, dimly lit tomb covered in morbid frescos that depict the circle of human life from conception til death, 'Mausoleum' is an incredible showcase of MYRKUR's sublime yet haunting voice in a truly chilling, unrivaled atmosphere.

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
