Jack Kadien This is an incredible recording. The nyckelharpa (an instrument I really want to hear more of) and her angelic voice make this cover of a traditional Scandinavian folk song one of the most haunting and beautiful songs I've heard in quite some time. When I hear this music I envision this as a song I would listen to before going into battle.

Anders M. Nordli It was kinda unexpected to see this appear as a single here on bandcamp, since I saw an excerpt on social media not long ago. It's so awesome that it ended up as a recording! :D

The key harp is a weird looking instrument with a pretty cool violin-ish sound, so it's fun to see Myrkur just go for it like this. This is a nice traditional folk song with Swedish lyrics.
