To follow up on her debut album, M…..MYRKUR has finally entered the studio to record her sophomore album. The debut album M was actually a pretty damn good album as she blended early 90’s black metal with absolutely gorgeous singing. A very different take on the genre that I thought was a breath of fresh air! No word on the release date (fall of 2017?) yet nor title of the upcoming album. So stay tuned, I am excited to hear what she comes up with. Haven’t listened to her before? Do so now: https://myrkur.bandcamp.com/
