Myrkur shares new black metal hymn 'Valkyriernes Sang'

A standout number that treads both ends of extreme spectrum while returning to the multi-instrumentalist's connection with Scandinavian mythology.

On October 20th, Myrkur's latest invigorating effort, Spine, hits shelves via Relapse Records and the latest audio sample to stem from the full-length effort is the moving black metal epic, Valkyriernes Sang. Blast beats and tremolo picked riffs transition into a soulful vocal performance sung in mastermind Amalie Bruun’s native Danish, providing both a confrontation and a vulnerable moment of introspection in one shape-shifting endeavor.


Myrkur comments:


“I wrote this song after diving into different interpretations of the old Norse sagas again, particularly Njál's saga and the poems about the valkyrier - ‘Spydsangen’ (‘The Song of the Spear’). I have always been fascinated with the figures of Valkyrier in Norse mythology, their power, their role in the battles, in Valhalla and with Odin.”


Stream Valkyriernes Sang below and pre-order Spine via Relapse Records.
