This week, one-woman black metal project MYRKUR shared the music video for her single “Nattens Barn” via NPR, who’ve noted that “Somewhere between the folk-based black metal of Ulver’s Bergtatt and the weightless shoegaze of Cocteau Twins lies MYRKUR.”
Watch the video at NPR HERE.
“Nattens Barn” comes from MYRKUR’s debut eponymous EP which is out now on Relapse Records. MYRKUR combines the rawness of second wave black metal bands with a natural sonic, ethereal beauty and has created a wholly unique perspective on the genre. It’s a feminine yet definitively brutal record that has burst onto the scene like a Valkyrie into battle.
