Danish folk/black metal queen Myrkur unveils new single “Dronning Ellisiv”. Listen to it below.
Recorded during the “Folkesange” album sessions, “Dronning Ellisiv” sees Amalie Bruun harnessing the very magic that has made her new album so special – from soaring atmospheres to lush instrumentations accompanying Bruun’s bold, immense voice, “Dronning Ellisiv” is cinematic in every way.
The single, a reimagining of a song by the great Harald Foss, tells the tale of the Grand Prince Yaroslav of Novgorod and his daughter Elisiv of Kiev. Elisiv would later marry King Harald of Norway and become Queen Consort of Norway in the 1040’s. Immersive and ethereal, the mood of Dronning Ellisiv dives into the source material and continues to evoke the sounds of expansive folk music, breathing new life into an old Nordic tale. Nostalgic and timeless, “Dronning Ellisiv ” continues to usher in a new era for Bruun and Myrkur.
