A few notes about the Byelobog re-release
on 11 June 2012
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 has been cleaned up which unfortunately has not worked for this album. It grates and has none of the original atmosphere I loved this album for. (The othere re-releases have not suffered from this problem.)
There is also a brief (new) note by Varg about the release and the lyrics are reporduced. The original artwork as on all the re-releases is of lesser quality than on the original release (smaller and slighlty obscured).
Yes Filosofem is an amazing album and black metal classic but the cleaner production somehow completely ruins the atmosphere of the album, and I find the re-release unlistenable! Track down the original.
