Myrkur, Enslaved, Wolves in the Throne Room and Khemmis at The Observatory

words + photos by Joe Cortez

Danish metal queen Myrkur descended upon Santa Ana’s Observatory on Saturday night, March 10 as part of Decibel Magazine’s 2018 tour. Anchored by heandliner Enslaved, the tour ripped through the states earlier this year, wrapping up in the OC with a riotous night of unadulterated head banging.

Second on the bill, Myrkur’s performance was eagerly anticipated by all, having not toured in the States in a couple years. She mentioned early on that she nearly had to cancel the set due to illness but Myrkur showed absolutely no signs of fatigue this night, delivering an uncompromising set filled with fire.

Check out my photos from the night below, also featuring Enslaved, Wolves in the Throne Room and Khemmis. For more on Myrkur be sure to visit
