New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Renowned Danish composer and classically trained multi-instrumentalist, MYRKUR's, recent full-length release Mareridt was the recipient of Metal Hammer's prestigious Album Of The Year Award at last night's Golden Gods Ceremony, as chosen by the magazine's editorial staff!

On Mareridt (translation: Nightmare), MYRKUR explores deeper into the mysterious and the feminine with 11 songs that further progress her visionary blend of metal with gorgeous, stirring melodies, dark folk passages, choral arrangements and superb, horrific beauty.

'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.
