Myrkur's eponymous EP debut stirred a backlash when its goth/black metal mash-up revealed a member of indie rockers Ex Cops. Joined on her first LP by Ulver's Garm and Mayhem's Teloch, Danish raven Amalie Bruun integrates extreme intensity into both genres' inherent drama. Ethereal crooning alternates with inhuman shrieks as she inserts pounded piano into walls of blast beats and guitar. Accessible anthems "Dybt i Skoven" and "Onde Børn" share a coffin with hate-filled roars "Skadi" and "Mordet." Solo piano piece "Norn" ends the disc gently.
