Mareridt (translation: Nightmare) is the highly anticipated sophomore full-length from renowned Danish composer and multi-instrumentalist MYRKUR. 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 11 tracks that further progress her visionary blend of metal with gorgeous, stirring melodies, dark folk passages, choral arrangements and superb, horrific beauty. Further taking MYRKUR to new artistic heights are lyrics in multiple languages, an unforgettable collaboration with Chelsea Wolfe and an array of special instrumentation including violin, mandola, folk drums, nyckelharpa (an ancient Swedish key harp), and Kulning (an ancient Scandinavian herding call). Mareridt is a profound manifestation of nightmares that demonstrates MYRKUR as one of the truly exceptional artists of our time.

The Demons have always lived inside me
They always watch me, they want to play
But not today no! Today you must be like a normal girl
But I could not do what they told me to because I wanted to kill them
Like the demons have told me to do, I wanted to make sure they all died so I could be alone and
nobody would hurt me
But you see once they made me do those things that you never want to speak about again and
you won’t even remember. Thats what they tell you, you dont remember this no! But my demons
do, they remember everything. Everything. And they will never forget what you did to me, never.
