See Myrkur Open Up About Internet Hate, Black-Metal Purists
Danish multi-instrumentalist Amalie Bruun has endured an onslaught of Internet hate and even death threats from black-metal purists since she formed her Myrkur project in 2014. "I wasn't even in the metal scene — and I'm still not in the metal scene," she says, "so I didn't know how that works. I was surprised that anyone could put that much bad intentions into putting out music." In this video interview, she opens up about the experience and explains why she thinks the backlash may be less extreme in the future for both herself and any musicians who follow in her path.
