Myrkur streams new EP

Metalnews Power of
Hailing from Denmark, carrying a distinct sense of Nordic isolation, one-woman black metal project Myrkur combines the rawness of second wave black metal bands with a natural sonic, ethereal beauty. Myrkur’s eponymous EP, out on Relapse on September 12 in Germany, Benelux and Finland and on September 15 in the rest of Europe, is a feminine yet definitively brutal record that has burst onto the scene like a Valkyrie into battle and this week you can stream it via Pitchfork's Advance here.

"Her work greatly recalls Ulver's Bergtatt album, emphasizing the influence of ambient music on black metal. The riffs stay true to the all-consuming enchantment that accounts for the continued relevance of Norway's classics." - Pitchfork

"A black metal record that respects tradition without drowning in it..." - Decibel
