‘Mareridt’ (translation: Nightmare) is the highly anticipated sophomore full-length from renowned Danish composer and multi-instrumentalist MYRKUR. 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 fall in the album trailer for ‘Mareridt’; view 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 the video below
‘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. Tickets and more info are available here and stay tuned for more details to come on ‘Mareridt’.
