Oooo, I'm excited about that.

Been listening to Folkesange by Myrkur as of late. Great album

Edit: I guess I have 2 of their last 3, didn't even know about 'Hammer' lol

That's kinda what I thought of their latest. At least back to Nymphetamine for sure. I will definitely pick it up soon.

We've literally just finished recording an album, which we've had quite a long time to do, to be honest. We were very fortunate that Martin (Skaroupka) came in to do drums just before lockdown, and since then, everyone's just been chipping in in bits. I've had the longest, as I live close to the studio, but it means we've been able to revisit songs, amend things, try loads of different ideas. We've probably gone over-budget, but we don't really care about that as it's going to be the best-sounding record we've ever done, and probably the best-written record.

It's been quite relaxing oddly being able to take our time with it without that pressure of deadlines, but it does mean with everyone doing things in parts as we were able, we've not all been together since the last show, and haven't been with our new keyboard player as well who contributed to the album but hasn't yet played a show.

It's going somewhere entirely different from the previous records. It's not going into space yet, but it's different. I hate describing our albums because I get tongue-tied about them. There is a bit of experimentation in there. It's heavier, faster, slower in parts. It's definitely going to have a unique sound to it where we purposefully took that on board, aiming for a more natural live sound that's more spacious. Like I said, we had that extra time to work on the record given to us this year… before all the leeway was taken back again.

Been on a kick of listening to albums from a particular year going back a while.
Currently on 2013. Cultes des Ghoules - Henbane is smashing that year.
