World renowned Danish composer and classically trained multi-instrumentalist, Myrkur, finally sets foot in North America for a full tour since the release of her groundbreaking, sophomore release, Mareridt. Myrkur will be backed by a full band on Decibel Magazine’s 2018 official tour whose lineup also includes performances from progressive metal legends, Enslaved and Wolves in the Throne Room. Check below for a full list of dates.
MYRKUR’s ‘Mareridt’ is a conceptual, hypnotic masterpiece that includes lyrics in multiple languages and an array of special instrumentation including violin, mandola, folk drums, Shaman drums, nyckelharpa (an ancient Swedish key harp), and Kulning (an ancient Scandinavian herding call).
Like a marriage of King Diamond’s ‘Them’ with Tchaikovsky’s ‘Swan Lake’, ‘Mareridt’ is a carefully composed concept freed from genre – a profound manifestation of nightmares that demonstrates Myrkur as one of the truly exceptional artists of our time.
