I've always had a passion for music and illustration. I've never been able to divorce from one or the other as both hold a special place in my heart.
The first time I merged these two disciplines was when I started creating cover art for bands around 2010. Album covers have always fascinated me and I felt inspired to create my own. Under the name Brandmerkk I've had the opportunity to work on a multitude of different projects from book covers, posters, t-shirts, logos, mobile applications, websites and, album covers to name just a few.
By late 2020 Brundarkh was conceptualised as a symphonic/melodic death metal project. Allowing me to express my love for the heavier and darker side of storytelling. The themes mostly draw inspiration from books, popular films and video games.
I also write music under my own name where I cover a wider range of musical styles. I try to write music that - I hope - inspires and strikes an emotional chord (pun intended) with the listener.
