MYRKUR - New Album Coming In September, First Trailer Released

The highly anticipated sophomore full-length from renowned Danish female composer and multi-instrumentalist Myrkur entitled Mareridt (translation: Nightmare), will be released on 15th September via Relapse Records. The album was 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 compositions that further progress her visionary blend of metal with gorgeous, stirring melodies, dark folk passages, choral arrangements and superb, horrific beauty. Today Myrkur gives us a glimpse behind the scenes and of what is to come this autumn in the album trailer for Mareridt and you can view it in the player below.
Further taking Myrkur to new artistic heights are lyrics in multiple languages and an array of special instrumentation including violin, mandola, folk drums, nyckelharpa (an ancient Swedish key harp), and Kulning (an ancient Scandinavian herding call). Myrkur was recently captured at home in Copenhagen playing Scandinavian Folk on her nyckelharpa. Check out also this video in the second player below. Previously released video for the new single "Två Kongunbarn" can be checked out over HERE.
Mareridt is a profound manifestation of nightmares that demonstrates Myrkur as one of the truly exceptional artists of our time. In August she will perform her first ever North American headlining show in NYC at Saint Vitus before heading to this year's Psycho Las Vegas Festival. Link
