Denmark's Myrkur wins Metal Hammer’s 'Album Of The Year' award at Golden Gods Ceremony for 'Mareridt'
Renowned Danish composer and classically trained multi-instrumentalist, Myrkur’s, recent full-length release Mareridt was the recipient of Metal Hammer’s prestigious Album Of The Year Award at last night’s Golden Gods Ceremony, as chosen by the magazine’s editorial staff! A full list of winners is available here.
Mareridt is available for purchase via Relapse.com HERE and on all digital retail outlets HERE.
A full collection of Myrkur’s music videos and live performances is available AT THIS LOCATION.
On Mareridt (translation: Nightmare), Myrkur explores deeper into the mysterious and the feminine with 11 songs that further progress her visionary blend of metal with gorgeous, stirring melodies, dark folk passages, choral arrangements and superb, horrific beauty. The conceptual masterpiece includes lyrics in multiple languages, an unforgettable collaboration with Chelsea Wolfe and an array of special instrumentation including violin, mandola, folk drums, nyckelharpa (an ancient Swedish key harp), and Kulning (an ancient Scandinavian herding call).
Like a marriage of King Diamond's 'Them' with Tchaikovsky's 'Swan Lake', Mareridt is a carefully composed concept freed from genre - a profound manifestation of nightmares that demonstrates Myrkur as one of the truly exceptional artists of our time. The compositions sweep into one another like a soundtrack designed to guide the listener through emotional turmoil. Timeless, triumphant, powerful and hypnotic, Mareridt is a sonic nightmare that you never want to escape.
Amalie Bruun - all instruments and composition.
