If you haven’t heard of Myrkur, don’t worry — you’re not alone. This Danish composer and black metal phenomenon has never stopped in Detroit, let alone North America, before. She has a cool Björk vibe going on, along with her lush and brutal melodies that thrash against heaviest-of-heavy sounds. Her debut album M has been heralded as a metal masterpiece by NPR; she recorded most of it in Oslo with the help of some of the greats in her field. There are haunting choirs, classical instrumental music, and a mix of Nordic folk that really sets Myrkur apart from other artists. Behemoth will be at the show, as well.
