Biography

Burzum is a musical project by Varg Vikernes (originally under the pseudonym "Count Grishnackh"). It began during 1991 in Bergen, Norway and quickly became prominent within the early Norwegian black metal scene. During 1992 and 1993, Burzum recorded four albums; however, in 1994 Vikernes was convicted and imprisoned for the murder of guitarist Øystein "Euronymous" ... Read more in Amazon's Burzum Store

5.0 out of 5 stars True Black Metal at it's most extreme. 1 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Those who know anything about the Black Metal world (and I speak of the genre in it's True form, as opposed to the watered-down, comercialised bands that proliferate the scene today) are divided into two groups: those that accept Burzum as one of the finest artists in the business; and those that disowned him after he was found guilty of the murder of the scene's founder, Mayhem's Oystein Aarseth. The initiated will most likely have already formed an opinion, and will not be persuaded to change it by what they read here. However, those new to the scene, or who have yet to pass judgement, should know that Varg Vikernes - the man behind Burzum; is not simply a right-wing extremist, arsonist and murderer; but produces (perhaps because of the afore mentioned personality traits; certainly in spite of them) what is undoubtedly *the* Blackest Metal available at the beginning of the new millenium. One of the scene's founders, his beliefs are unquestionably sincere; and his music uncomprimisingly dark, evil, aggressive and at the same time beautiful - in other words it bears every characteristic music of it's kind is noteworthy for. Vocals more akin to the death-shrieks of dying swine are issued forth at the heavens; communicating lyrics describing the paths trodden by cosmic visionaries or nameless beasts of folklore. Harsh guitar sound accompanies thunderous drumming to weave a malestrum of violent, etherial wonder about the listener; and whilst this - the first Burzum album - is devoid of keyboard accompaniment (though not of the odd notable keyboard instrumental track), it remains no less misterious than later offerings; yet no less extreme than Dark Throne.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feeble Screams from the Lord of the Depths 6 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Burzum is generally known to be one of the most extreme black metal bands around, and this album does not fail to live up to this expectation. The vocals bear very little resemblance to a human voice and generally sound much more like the dying screams of a demon. This does mean that if you are unused to black metal this album is pretty heavy going. On the other hand, the drumming and guitars are fantastic throughout, especially on "Ea Lord of the Depths", "Feeble screams from forests unknown" and the Bathory-esque "War". The lyrics are fairly standard black metal lyrics, which are not particularly interesting, but fit in with the atmosphere of the album quite well. Although Vikernes undoubtedy has fairly dubious morals (mainly refering to his murder of Mayhem's Euronymous) he is very talented and this album proves that he is more than capable of playing drums, guitar and bass as well as providing the vocals, with very little trouble. This album surpasses any of his later material. Mainly because his later material was mostly produced from prison. This is "true" black metal in its rawest and most extreme format, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes their metal black.

3.0 out of 5 stars A review of the VINYL 26 July 2010
Format:Vinyl
I will spare the reader of an in-depth review of the music on this LP, as this has been sufficiently done already on amazon, on the CD version of the combined, self titled debut the 'Burzum' album (1992), along with the 'Aske' mini EP (1993) that accompanies it. What I am concerned about with this review is the format the music is presented in, which is Vinyl.

The `Burzum' album, when it originally was released in 1992, was essentially designed for Vinyl format. Varg Vikernes (the master behind Burzum) intended for the first half of the music and or the first side of Vinyl, to be `Side Hate' and the second side of music to be `Side Winter'. HOWEVER, with this 2 disc Burzum/Aske Vinyl reissue I presumed, before I purchased the double LP, that the first disc would only just contain the `Burzum album' and the second vinyl would contain only the `Aske' EP. But I was wrong. On this reissue the record company seem to have amalgamated the two different albums into the two vinyl, for example where the last track, on the second side of the `Burzum album', on the original release, was `Dungeons of Darkness', now the last track on the first vinyl is `The Crying Orc', which the latter should have been the second track on the second side of the original release of the `Burzum album'. This may sound all a bit irate and fussy to some, but I suppose I am a purist who believes in the original format that the artist first intended the record to be like.

Also another important issue to point out is that the album art (the front cover of the record, with the dark hooded figure in a desolate landscape) seems to be out of focus, with little sharpness at all, proving to be moderately blurry. Let me assure you that my eye site is perfectly good; I do not own or need a pair of spectacles to enhance my vision.

5.0 out of 5 stars A few notes about the Byelobog re-release 11 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
5 stars because the music is excellent and this release is well worth buying.

This version is in a jewel case with the original cover artwork on the booklet, presented in a cardboard slipcase that has the image shown by amazon. The sound quality is excellent. It is slightly crisper than the original.

There is also a brief (new) note by Varg about the release and the original lyrics are reproduced. The "Aske" image of the church is relegated from the CD itself to small and partly obscured picture on the back of the booklet. The German translation of the lyrics are also missing.

The slighlty cleaned up production loses a little bit of the original atmosphere but adds some clarity and a bit more force. It is hard to decide which version I prefer. However, this new version is well worth buying because for the first time it includes the original Aske version of "A lost forgotten sad Spirit" and also has some informative notes regarding the involvements of Euronymous and Samoth.
