As soon as you see this album, you know you're in for a treat.
Simply just looking at the detailed, pained and thought-provoking album cover begins to give you an idea of what the CD is going to be like. The first track "Den onde kysten", sets a moody, emotional scene, before "Key to the Gate", with brilliant double-kicking, beautifully constructed guitar parts and the tortured screams, full of emotion and perfectly suiting the lyrics. Every song just compliments the next, and it is mesmorising listening.
Unlike a lot of black metal, Burzum doesn't follow formulaic black metal song patterns: this is pure, heart-felt, original black metal. If you like music like Darkthrone, Mayhem, Absurd or Craft, Burzum is definitely worth checking out.

The second full–length album from Varg Vikernes did not do a great deal to build on the sound of his self–titled debut, or the EP Aske, but nonetheless is a very atmospheric album. Lyrically, it is highly influenced by Tolkien with song titles such as En Ring Til Aa Herske (One Ring to Rule Them All) and Key to the Gate. The album consists of eight tracks, but when the intro and outro, synth piece Han Som Reiste and Naar Himmelen Klarner, an instrumental from his Uruk–Hai days are taken into account, there are only four actual songs left.
Vocally, Varg puts in a stunning performance, his tortured screeches on Lost Wisdom are full of emotion, whilst on En Ring Til Aa Herske he experiments with clean vocals, although these are confined to backing vocals. All the songs feature crushing riffs, but the atmosphere is never compromised. Key to the Gate features an amazing solo. Whilst not technically brilliant, it is the most atmospheric solo I have ever heard. Although the lack of blastbeats is quite surprising for an album like this, he puts in a solid performance in that department, too.
Which finally brings us to the synth track, Han Som Reiste, which can only be described as dire. It sounds like the sort of thing your younger brother or sister would knock up in a couple of minutes on their new Casio keyboard. Unfortunately, this was the direction Vikernes was going to take when he was later imprisoned for the murder of his former friend, Euronymous of Mayhem. But despite this obvious low–point, this is a great black metal album and deserves a place in everyone's collection

The second full length Burzum album progresses nicely where the Aske EP leaves off, staying similar in sound - very dark, with a rough, distorted sound grating uneasily with Vikernes' screeching, terrifying vocals.There are some very dark, eerie instrumentals here, which sound more like a tormented soul in some metallic underworld sewer than structured music.
There are a few moments of melody on display here, such as in 'Naar Himellen Klaarner', but what you mostly find here is the blackest of black metal, with a cacophony of moans, demonic guitars, and the odd blast beat.

The debut album was Burzum's most 'Black Metal' sound. This album signalled the project's movement away from Black Metal. There are clear influences of Black Metal in there, however, the music is more apt to drone in a different way (examples, En ring til aa herske). The music turns more towards ambience (though not as much as Hvis Lyset Tar Oss), the music is more percussion driven than the previous album and most Black Metal in general.
The album is divided by a keyboard piece, further proof that Burzum was never wholly 'Black Metal' as such. Some songs seem to take on a duality of sounds, Lost Wisdom being the best example as a 'rock' lead kicks off the song, but is shadowed and swaps roles with a darker sound.
