New Track "Nattens Barn" Streaming From Myrkur

Danish one woman black metal act Myrkur is streaming the new track "Nattens Barn," which can be heard below. The song will appear on upcoming debut self-titled release due out in North America on September 16th (September 12th German/Finland and September 15th in Europe) in CD/LP/digital formats via Relapse Records.

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 in 2014 and will release her eponymous debut EP this fall. 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. "I always dreamed about becoming a Huldra, an elf girl, a Valkyrie, the goddess Freja. These powerful women in Norse Mythology have an element of beauty and mystique, but they are also deadly," Myrkur explains.
