Dynfari - Myrkurs er þörf






Another day, another Icelandic black metal record. Dynfari are one of a kind, a band who focus on what they call, 'Sonic Hypnosis.' As you unveil the many layers of what they have created here it becomes increasingly clear that Dynfari are in a league of their own - a truly talented band with the vision to match. There is something utterly transcendent about their thrilling new record, Myrkurs er þörf. It's poetic, powerful and loud. The vision that they unfold is multi-layered and demands the listeners fullest attention.

Myrkurs er þörf impresses from the first because of its ability to integrate a vast wellspring of ideas into a clear sonic tapestry. There is a sort of bliss communicated here that can only be achieved with the power of extreme metal. Yet Dynfari also frequently lean into some of the more twisted elements of the genre. This isn't all pretty post black metal stuff. Instead a lot of it will leave you wondering - 'Where do my future lead?' It's rare to find a band with such a clear vision but even on repeat listen, Myrkurs er þörf remains a thriller that will keep their devout legions consistently coming back for more.

Few black metal records this year have really stuck out out me like this one. there is just so much going on within it and it seems to continually hint at bigger and better frontiers for Dynfari to be crossing. Myrkurs er þörf is an exciting record and a record that is going to keep you on the edge of your seat as you navigate massive soundscapes and fall in love with the larger than life ministrations of one of Icelands premier black metal bands. So why not sit down, drop out and let yourself drown in black metal!
