«Svartmyrkr manages to be incredibly cinematic and tense. With oppressive and constantly building atmospheres with a martial stomp, it often does feel like it would perfectly fit as trailer music or as a soundtrack to Saruman creating the Uruk-Hai… there’s always an apocalyptic and frightening feel, even in the subdued moments. Svartmyrkr is extremely immersive and engaging… It’s great when a band that has been at it for this long can make something so effective and that isn’t just a simple rehash» (Metal Storm)
«Svartmyrkr is surprisingly an evolution towards a more atmospheric musical framework where noise has a restrained, but important, place… A lot of bands would simply exhumed their old sound to please their old fans placating their nostalgia. Ulvtharm, Nordvargr and Drakh have instead decided to move their sound one step towards other territories using crafts instead of impact. Highly recommended» (4.5/5, Chain D.L.K.)
