Myrkgrav - Biography




Myrkgrav was founded by Lars Jensen in the beginning of 2003, as a one-man project. The first record to be unleashed under the name of Myrkgrav was the 2004 demo Fra Fjellheimen Kaller..., a Black Metal based record with some Viking influences. After this demo, the band was given the opportunity to release it's material on Det Germanske Folket Records, and started working with the debut album.
After encountering an almost endless amount of problems along the way, the album Trollskau, Skrømt og Kølabrenning (Trollish Woods, Wraiths and Coalburning) was finally finished in the summer of 2006 and released in October that same year. It features eleven Folkloristic Extreme Metal songs with a lyrical inspirational basis in old stories and tales from the Ringerike region of Norway, where Lars grew up.

Since the band appreciates making sure of that what it releases holds a certain quality, you should be prepared for that it will take a couple of years before anything new is unleashed under the name of Myrkgrav.
