Not only do these two bands sound similar, but they both feature Destructhor and Secthdamon in both bands.

It took me a little while, but I eventually decided that I like Myrkskog better. They are faster and more brutal. I haven't heard the new Zyklon cd however.

Does anyone know if Myrkskog is still around or have they broken up to focus more on Zyklon?

Unfortunatley I am yet to hear the new Zyklon record also, but, at the same time, I prefer them to Myrkskog -wonderful as they are. They have this epic granduer about them that I just don't feel in the latter's music.

NO! not of course!
arrrgh! hahaha. this thread is going to annoy me so much!!!

everyone is going to be voting having heard much more of Zyklon then they have Myrkskog, and so will all vote for Zyklon when Myrkskog havent had a proper chance to get into their books

EVERYONE i know that knows both these bands prefers Myrkskog, and i do as well
they are faster, and more diverse - both of their albums are fantastic!

PLEASE - everyone - if you are going to vote, have listened to both Myrkskog albums as well!

(I started a Myrkskog thread in the extreme forum a couple of days ago - have a look in there, no one else seems bothered with it which is a shame)

I was only recently introduced to this band and only have one of their albums (Deathmachine). I must say, I've got several Zyklon albums and this band is far superior to their well~known counterparts. They seem more varied. I really want to get my hands on their other release.

well the person that had a post above my first one saying "Zyklon of course!" has deleted it - so hopefully they have listened to some Myrkskog now

Daru Jericho: and who was it that introduced them to you haha. you see i am chuffed now
'Deathmachine' is a very good album, but me and 'pyroleprechaun' prefer 'Superior Massacre' - so when you get your paws on that id like to hear what you think as well

Zyklon win this hands down, their a better overall band, they produce better riffs, better songs, better drummer, and also produce better albums, Zyklon win this easily.

do you know Myrkskog?
i think the drumming in Myrkskog is way way way better then that in Zyklon
..seriously - if you dont know Myrkskog, like i said up there, you wont regret looking into them!
their second album is the better of the two so start with that
i cant understand you would vote Zyklon if you knew Myrkskog properly

I hate how people blindly consider musicians to be better just because they have been in more successful bands. Don't get me wrong, Trym's a great drummer, but Secthdaemon is a monster.

yeh - he really is. its a shame in some ways he isnt drumming in Zyklon instead.. i would prefer him!
Trym can do the vocals and bass.. haha
Secthdaemon is one of the best i have heard!

I actually know Myrkskog a little better than Zyklon, and still prefer Zyklon. Myrkskog sorta sounds like a garbabe compactor or something. I have trouble identifying it as music. It is disorganized and nutty. Myrkskog is better for when you just want brutality, but I mean Zyklon actually plays music! Good music too! They also have better production and it is evident more thought has gone into it. I mean, maybe I'm not listenning to Myrkskog closely enough, but I'm not really sure I want to.

haha. thats what i feel about the new Zyklon album..
i just cant get really get into it - it all sounds like a big mess. i get on perfectly well with the other albums
i probably just need to give it a bit more time and let me get into it more, but still - i dont think it is a very fantastic album at all

That Myrkskog plays faster and thus heavier than Zyklon in some songs, that is granted. But, in spite of this, to me Zyklon's songs, guitar riffs and leads are more memorable: when you are making a Humanities test at the University and, no matter how much hard you try, you cannot get that fukken first lead of the song "Psyklon Aeon" off your head, then you can tell which one you like the most.

Also, do you know what makes a growl to sound even heavier? It is having a none-growled voice in the mix to contrast with. That is what I like from Secthdaemon's vocals (often hated I have seen), that they not only provide something original to the mix but that it makes his growls to sound even heavier when contrasting.

This isnt really black metal... more like deathmetal with obvious black influences

I've heard plenty of Zyklon, but I've yet to listen to Myrkskog, so I won't vote yet. But can anyone tell me what album is good from Myrkskog?

Both of their albums are good, so it doesn't really matter. Superior Massacre is more brutal, but Deathmachine is slightly better written I think.

I would choose Zyklon of these two bands. Thought i cant hear anything that similar musicwise with these bands, except Zyklons first album, wich has alot of faster paced parts like Myrkskog do.

why do you choose Zyklon over the two though?
i think Myrkskog are better in just about every way..
i dont understand what people like more about Zyklon

Zyklon's music is more varied. Thers alot of tempo changes wich i like, and the guitar work is imo better also. Shortly: Myrkskog just gets bit too monotomic for me.

This is actually a much closer battle than the voting score suggests. Zyklon however for me are the better of the two bands, each containing ruminates of Emperor. Zyklon are a big favorite amongst Black/Death circles, and Samoths riffing style remain an ever powerful force in metal circles.
Myrkskog I have enjoyed for some time now, though they aren't a favorite they certainly have their place in the metal world. They do have some interesting songs and apart from the riffing they contain a great deal more of the Emperor sound. Which I consider odd given than Samoth is in Zyklon not Myrkskog.
