Myrkus working on debut album

Metalnews Power of
"I am honored that Kristoffer is helping me create my full length album, and to work with musicians like Teloch and Øyvind. I have done everything myself except drums previously so it is a big change to have more people involved, but I know it was the right choice. People can expect an album that will be nastier, prettier, and more disorienting than the previous recordings. It is very cold in Oslo." - MYRKUR

MYRKUR is currently in Oslo recording her highly anticipated full length LP to be released next year on Relapse Records. Kristoffer Rygg, aka Garm of Ulver is producing the album, Øyvind Myrvoll of Nidingr and Dodheimsgard is on drums while Teloch of Mayhem plays guitars alongside Myrkur. She also shared they will be recording in Olso's Valhallveien Studio as well as in Emanuel Vigeland's Museum.

If you missed it last week - MYRKUR confirmed her first live performance at Roskilde Festival in Denmark and shared her new demo "Skaði", giving us a glimpse of what's in the near future.
Listen "Skaði" On Soundcloud or Bandcamp

"a black metal record that respects tradition without drowning in it…" - Decibel

"Somewhere between the folk-based black metal of Ulver's Bergtatt and the weightless shoegaze of Cocteau Twins lies Myrkur." - NPR

"'s haunting and it's beautiful, and it's generally everything you want black metal to be…"
- Metal Sucks
