Myrkur – Mareridt (2017) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Myrkur - Mareridt - Album CoverAmalie Bruun and her alma mater Myrkur are on the loose again. I can already hear the haters’ black tongues wagging away at her metal credentials. “Pop girlie gone Black Metal has no reason to exist…” – and so on and so forth. Nonetheless she does exist and gains maturity as her endeavor soars along these icy, black and dreary landscapes. She started off with a first self-titled EP that already sent some shock waves all about the metal planet.

M – the début full length album – raised expectations for future offerings big time. And it is against this winner of the 2015 Top 10 Records that Mareridt measures against. Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Myrkur - Myrkur - Album CoverThou shalt not review old records, because it is a waste of your life energy! The 11th Commandment of a review blog. Right? But rulez are there to be broken – at least sometimes. So, let’s have a look at what was, before M graced us with its unholy presence. And yes, we will harken back in time to the beginnings of Myrkur and their self-titled EP. You heard that right. The very same band, who earlier last year – in 2015 – roughed up the Black Metal world real good. And she did that so well, Myrkur ended up at the top spot of RockmusicRaider’s 2015 Top Ten Records.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Myrkur - M - Album CoverYou are a metal fan, right? That is why you are here. Right? So, have you ever tried to listen to Enya? Yes, the one of the surreal, kind of weird, ethereal melodies and soft tunes. Not #metal at all, y’know. Now: Mix three parts of Enya with a shot of Caladan Brood, together with 2 parts of Cradle of Filth on steroids (meaning: Dani Filth’s annoying screams amplified times five…). Then throw in three parts of Ulver and one psychedelic part of Suns of Thyme. And thus you get M, the latest and best of Myrkur. And no, this has nothing to do with James Bond and his 007-ish being.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
