Danish composer, vocalist and classically trained multi-instrumentalist Myrkur (Amalie Bruun), releases a video for the track “Leaves of Yggdrasil” taken from the upcoming album “Folkesange“.
“Myrkur journeys into the heart of Scandinavian culture. Through Bruun’s crystalline vocals, an array of traditional instruments and storytelling, ‘Folkesange’ offers listeners an immersive, emotional and transcendent experience that resonates in today’s turbulent times.”
“On Myrkur’s first two full-length studio albums (2015’s M and 2017’s Mareridt), she recast black metal in the most personal yet expansive of terms, their blending of Bruun’s Danish folk roots with tempestuous internal struggles breathing new life into a subgenre whose followers can be rigidly possessive.”
“After the nightmare-induced visions that wrought themselves throughout 2017’s immensely acclaimed Mareridt, Folkesange offers an emotional sanctuary, a means to reconnect to something permanent and nature-aligned. It’s an awareness that’s become deeply bound to the album’s organic, regenerative spirit.”
Folkesange, which will be released in several formats will be released on 20th March 2020 via Relapse Records.
