Myrkur showing just a bit of her face
Myrkur

Mysterious Danish "one-woman black metal project" Myrkur already released one excellent track from her debut EP on Relapse (due 9/16), and now she's released another new song, titled "Latvian Fegurö." She also officially released her short film (which you may have seen some screenshots of) that features music from the EP and, while keeping her face shrouded, depicts her walking around in nature and talking about how she always dreamed of being an elf girl.

It's an effective piece of media, continuing to flesh out the nordic mystique that has building around her. The song, like the first one she released, is simply a really awesome slice of atmospheric black metal, highlighting her ethereal vocals and is able to abruptly shift gears without missing a beat. The drumming is also particularly fantastic. No word on yet if she'll be playing any shows, but we'll have any updates as they come in.

You can check out the short film and the song stream below...

lol it's 2014. Is there anyone stupid enough to actually fall for this shit?

"Dude, have you heard of this mysterious Danish "one-woman black metal project" Myrkur?"

"No. Who gives a fuck?"

"Well I work for Relapse marketing and the drumming is particularly fantastic."

"Orly?"

I mean, everybody knows sausages are dense but damn.

My Mom's taking me to Applebee's™ for lunch. Think the other patrons will recognize how dark and mysterious I am when I listen to Myrkur™ on my black iPod classic?
