EDITORS’ NOTES

Myrkur’s second album is a haunting journey into the bad dreams (the title means "Nightmare") of Danish singer and multi-instrumentalist Amalie Bruun. Writing in English for the first time on “The Serpent” and “Funeral” (which features American songstress Chelsea Wolfe), Bruun also uses various Scandinavian languages in her alluring amalgamation of classical music, black metal, and Norwegian folk. With traditional rock instrumentation against a backdrop of strings and her own piano, violin, and nyckelharpa playing, Bruun deftly balances beauty and darkness.
