Emerging from the darkness of Scandinavia comes one­ woman black metal project, Myrkur. Combining the rawness of second wave black metal bands like Ulver and Darkthrone with a natural sonic, ethereal beauty, Myrkur has created a wholly unique perspective on the genre. She elaborates: "Nature is a big part of the reason black metal even exists. And all types of pure music that comes from a pure place. The word 'Myrkur' means 'darkness' in Icelandic. The place where there are no boundaries, where no one can hurt me. And when I have sung the screams it, physically hurts but it feels like something is leaving my body. I can't remember it afterwards." Hailing from Denmark, Myrkur signed to Relapse Records earlier this year and will release her eponymous debut EP on September 16th respectively. With a distinct sense of Nordic isolation, Myrkur's debut is a feminine yet definitively brutal record that has burst onto the scene like a Valkyrie into battle. You can hear her first single “Nattens Barn” below.
