Mareridt (translation: Nightmare) is the highly anticipated sophomore full-length from renowned Danish composer and multi-instrumentalist Myrkur. Scheduled to be released on September 15th via Relapse the album was recorded between Copenhagen and Seattle with producer Randall Dunn (Marissa Nadler, Earth, Sunn O))), Boris, Wolves In The Throne Room), Mareridt is “a rich juxtaposition of the dark and the light; the moon and the mother earth; the witch and the saint.
Myrkur explores deeper into the mysterious and the feminine with compositions that further progress her visionary blend of metal with gorgeous, stirring melodies, dark folk passages, choral arrangements and superb, horrific beauty.”
Today Myrkur gives us a glimpse behind the scenes and of what is to come this fall in the album trailer for Mareridt; view below.
