Albums:
Amalie Bruun, aka Myrkur, started this one-woman musical project a few years ago. In addition to the two aforementioned full length albums, she did a self-titled EP in 2014 and a live album, Mausoleum, in 2016. This stuff is classified as black metal but doesn't fit neatly into a single genre IMO. There's a definite folk/traditional and a bit of a gothic vibe here too. Classify it however you want - I dig it, and I love this woman. She does both beautiful, angelic clean vocals and harsh growled vocals. It's really good stuff.

Garm from Ulver and Borknagar was the producer on M. If you're familiar with early Ulver at all, you'll definitely recognize his influence here:


This is the second track off of Mareridt. It's much harder than Crown, which I posted in another thread. It has a mixture of screams/growls and clean singing.


I particularly love her softer songs. This is a live version of the closer from Mareridt.

This woman is pretty much my go-to for car rides to and from work, and particularly when I'm having trouble deciding what to listen to. Her music just works perfectly for me, no matter what mood I'm in.

These are both softer songs:

Nordlys (from M)


De Tre Piker (from Mareridt)


Here are two (somewhat) harder songs:

Ulvinde (from Mareridt)


Funeral (feat. Chelsea Wolfe - from Mareridt)
