Don't let that Sound Of Music cover art fool you; somehow we've arrived at the point where acoustic folk is more metal than folk metal.

I hate this generation of w***n. All they do is wear traditional clothes, read european classics and keep having children. My wife named all 12 of our sons after the Apostles and all 9 daughters after the greek muses. She won't let me go to McDonald's because she cooks every day and she forces me to pick berries and hunt. She won't let me skip a single day at gym because she says l have to get ready for the boogaloo. I hate my wife. Women back in 2019 would leave us alone and let us play games. My wife calls me cringe and beats me with a rolling pin if l spend time in front of the computer with my friends instead of singing hymns from mount Athos. We live in a yurt which she forced me to build myself, all she did is decorating it with nemez art. Me and my sons are outside working on our self sufficient farm all day while my wife and daughters are at home singing folk songs and doing handcrafts. I'm sick and tired of her behaviour. Every morning l have to read Bible to our children and every night l have to tell them legends of our forefathers. Sometimes she makes me recite the Iliad in old greek with lyre. Every day l live in fear she will say l'm not based if l don't give her more children.
I'm a slave. I miss feminists.

Best album review I read so far.

I must say I am fascinated by the amount of .. people who wank off on leaving comments and bad ratings on albums they don't like and how butthurt and offended they are, especially by Myrkur.

But my heart is warm as the darkened sun above me...
Nothing can never take away
What I've seen with these tired eyes

Ramund is actually just an orgasmic song. So relaxing and nice to listen to...

This is background music for when you play some kind of RPG like Skyrim or DnD. Or for when you want contemplate the meaning of life while drinking mead and smoking pipe tobacco out on the fjords.

This wasn't exactly what I wanted, I actually liked the jarring juxtaposition of folk music and black metal elements, but as it turns out this has been the most enjoyable new listen so far this year. I don't care that some people gave her flack because she's a "hipster" or "poser", I don't care that this album isn't metal... the music is absolutely beautiful. And I don't even listen to folk music that much

Yeah, even I miss her BM elements, but as a stand alone folk album this album is quite cool.

A few of the songs are forgettable, but at its brightest moments this album truly outshines most of what Myrkur has done before. A very solid 8 for me.

Well, I mean you can have whatever opinion you want of Myrkur, but a 2 seems a weeee bit too extreme.

I just mean that She was rather more of pagan viking metal influenced by black metal but marketed herself as one woman black metal.

She got the attention and audience though.

I guess it's an album interesting enough for the METAL community, but there are so many folk artists could do better than her, or today's "mainstream" folk singer.

I have no doubts about that. The new Laura Marling is probably my favorite folk thing this year. Can you name some examples of your own?

I like Omnia quite a lot; while when I'm talking about folk I always seek instrumental things. Several individuals or groups from UK/Ireland can always bring a good time, e.g. Lúnasa, Clanadonia, mighty Alasdair Fraser...
Ooh did I mention Luar Na Lubre? Mägo de Oz covered them.

I definitely miss the black metal elements, but make no mistake, this album is great. I'm always down for some quality folk.
