10. Tva Konungabarn (Mareridt, 2017)

“I absolutely love this song and the unique instrument used in it. I highly recommend it if you are into folk music.. A very pretty song. Myrkur joyfully traipses the line between beauty and horror to show us how thin that division is.”

9. Skogen Skulle Do (M, 2015)

“This is an amazing album. Most Black Metal pales by comparison. The blend of choral voices, scandinavian folk music and searing metal is beautifully handled.”

8. Latvian Fergurð (Myrkur, 2014)

“This album has just blown me away, beautifully dark and melodic yet so ferocious. I could’nt even compare this to any other band, but listen with an open mind and it will grow on you.”

7. Den Lille Piges Dod (Mausoleum (Live), 2016)

“Masterfully performed acoustic versions of songs from Myrkur’s debut full-length album “M.” Recorded in a Mausoleum, hence the title, this recording gives new life to these songs by bringing them closer to the realm of death. Myrkur illustrates on this LP that black metal can be beautiful.”

6. Jeg Er Guden, I Er Tjenerne (M, 2015)

“This is one of those rare cases where the words Black Metal and Beautiful can go together. A one woman project M is an album combining icy black metal sounds with delicate folk like vocals and guitars”

5. Ulvinde (Mareridt 2017)

“Mareridt bears the strong confidence of an artist with all cylinders firing, “Ulvinde” being a prime example. A majestic chorus backs Bruun as she sways back and forth from enchantress to demon, the music driving and methodical.”

4. Ravnens Banner (Myrkur, 2014)

“The most striking element of this debut EP from the new atmospheric black metal project “Myrkur” is the various contrasting aspects of its music. As it is basically a one woman musical act, it is all the more impressive that musician Amalie Bruun manages to bring disparate elements of classical music and black metal together in so interesting a fashion.”

3. Maneblot (Mareridt, 2017)

“Absolute master work from the Danish artist. From almost choral/orchestral sounds through to death metal, she demonstrates a fantastic range and deep emotion.”

2. H’vnen (M, 2015)

“Haevnen” is probably her best attempt to synthesize these various sounds. The song collapses in a shrieking fit, rights itself in a clean melodic passage with synth-organs, then convulses again with frothing rage. This gives even Bruun’s clean vocals an air of malevolence, even in the song’s calm-sounding ending. Violence somehow remains in the air.”

1. Onde Born (M, 2015)

“. “Onde Born” in particular sounds exactly like an Alcest song — the guitar could pass for early-nineties shoegazing, and the vocals are dreamy and airy rather than aggressive. “Dybt I Skoven” sounds like dream-pop that could have been written by a late-eighties  indie-noise  band.”
