Yo, ye folk bands of the mighty earth-lore, take heed. A new and pretty promising band is on the prowl. One that might very well make you hang your head in shame in the future.

The RMR crew already covered Tvinna for their first video back in 2019. And since then, we’ve seen only scarce news from this emerging band.

But fear naught. Kreiz, their newest clip, just hit the airwaves beginning of December 2020. This time with guest artist Eivør from the Faroes1) in tow.

Yet here, things are a bit more Gaia than may be … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider - Myrkur - Leaves of Yggdrasil - Video Cover

Okay, I admit it. Throughout the clip I waited for the trademark Black Metal screams that Myrkur is famous for. Amalie Bruun surprised me so many times since her first Black Metal piece we covered, I just don’t trust the soft sweet music that’s wafting from my boomboxes anymore.
