Myrkur's Mareridt is a conceptual, hypnotic masterpiece that includes lyrics in multiple languages and an array of special instrumentation including violin, mandola, folk drums, Shaman drums, nyckelharpa (an ancient Swedish key harp), and kulning (an ancient Scandinavian herding call).
Like a marriage of King Diamond's "Them" with Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake", Mareridt is a carefully composed concept freed from genre - a profound manifestation of nightmares that demonstrates Myrkur as one of the truly exceptional artists of our time.
