MYRKVEDR on hold...

Sad news for MYRKVEDR fans,

The  band goes on indefinite hold. Thurisaz and the rest of Myrkvedr said :

Dear fans.  We have decided to put Myrkvedr on hold indefinitely. Time will tell if we ever play together again.  We've lost our will to drive this project any longer so we will end it here before it drains us further.  Hagal will spend his time on his newborn baby, Sumbl will continue on with his other band Falkhan and myself and Rok will be starting to look for other bands to join.
It has been a fun and exciting 5 years overall, and we hope you've enjoyed the ride as well, catch you on the flip-side!

The band said to Sword Chant : We took the time to develop our melodies and ambiences. There's a great instrument diversity. We can hear our lovely "boha" of course but we added whistle, mandolin, accordion, hurdy-gurdy, great Highland bagpipes, trumpet and euphonium. We have kept the essence of our sound : catchiness, energy, power and melody but there's some new elements. We can hear a military-close introduction, a waltz, a disco-close rythm, some extend acoustic guitar parts and even an oriental influence.  The lyrics won't be French but Gascon, and includes many choirs. They deal with the King of a traditional carnav…
