4.0 out of 5 stars An early better age, 4 Aug 2004
This review is from: Burzum (including bonus Aske EP) (Audio CD)
A flower in a desolate wilderness, Burzum stands head shoulders and torso above all other black metal material.
Eschewing the formulaic absurdity of the genre's usual themes Burzum represents raw emotion and power.
Not everyone's cup of tea by any stretch of the imagination. The vocals are amongst the most terrifying and intimadating commited to tape ever. Some of the lyrics, if you are able to make them out in the first place, are in his native tounge.
However for any fan of any kind of extreme music this is a must. Awesomely powerful and atmospheric guitar riffs compete with magestrial arraingements and playing. The fact this is the work of one man is scary and impressive.
His insanity, racism and egotism aside, Grishnack/Vikerns emains one of the more interesting metal songwriters of the early 90s.
Worth hearing, if only once.
