This is for me the most dissatisfying 'metal' Burzum album. I say that because it is varied and uneven containing a mixture of old and new compositions. The other thing to note is that this is the only Burzum album which has been mastered traditionally as metal music (the other albums all being mastered as classical music). Varg himself doesn't seem particularly satisfied with this fact and it certainly gives the album a unique sound in the history of Burzum. However it contains some very good tracks and is recognisably Burzum. It is less progressive than 'Fallen', albeit still with more subtle vocals than the pre-prison releases. Finally, whilst it mostly retains a good atmosphere and the hypnotic/repetitive segments I also think it often 'rocks' in a more traditional way than you might expect, which perhaps makes it more accessible in places. (I'm sure Varg would hate me for saying that!)

This is definitely worth checking out for yourself if you like Burzum at all.

I have yet to hear anyone else who produces albums as hypnotic and ambient as Varg. He is doing something no one else does. Belus is as good as the amazing, entrancing Hvis Lyset Tar Oss. It takes you on a journey...

I bought this album on the strength of a magazine feature on Burzum. I was not disappointed.
You can sometimes tire of a lot of 'metal' sounding like just another album. This CD stands out by sounding different, not one track comes across weak, all are hypnotic and atmospheric with long riffs. This being my first album by Vark, I find His range of vocals truly fantastic and after many playings enjoy the CD more each time.
I will not even try to slot the album into a metal category, He stands alone as being just a fantastic maker of great music and I will be collecting further CD's by the band.

on first listen of this album i was slightly underwhelmed, having waited so long for it, and because it is fast paced its hard to take in all the brilliance on first listen. i was hoping that the songs would be like det som engang var, but the tracks on this album are fast and unrelenting, but that gives them a hypnotizing quality and there are some beautiful melodies that are as good if not as memorable as those on older albums, ive listened to this album over and over now and feel i will return to it for years, it doesnt get boring and i cannot fault it, some will find it perhpas less exciting than older albums but overall this is burzum on brilliant form.

Belus is the long awaited first post prison Burzum release, the first one in 11 years. Fans of Burzum`s earler work will enjoy this album but it has a newer and heavier feel to it which makes it distinctive from the other releases.
My only criticism is the lack of English translation of the Norwegian lyrics.

Interesting how things change. 'Burzum' (meaning 'the darkness') has released an album dedicated to Belus, the Indo-European deity of light. Far from being contradictory, however, Varg's opposition to Judeo-Christianity hasn't wavered a bit - just his conception of where he stands in relation to it. Originally he thought of himself as a force of darkness, but now he sees Judeo-Christianity itself as the darkness, and so opposes it with a force of light.

The music itself is both dark and bright, sunlight and shadow. On one track the guitars form a cold pre-dawn mist, on another they dance like a rainbow on a waterfall.

'Belus' Død' is a powerful and older piece, dating back to the time of 'Filosofem', and indeed its opening riff was also used in a less powerful way on 'Dauði Baldrs'. Now, played on guitar, it sounds truly overwhelming. On the other hand, 'Sverddans' ('Sword Dance') features music Varg wrote when he was sixteen, sounding like raw death metal à la Darkthrone's 'Goatlord', and this doesn't fit in very well with the other pieces.

More recent compositions like 'Glemselens Elv' ('The River of Forgetfulness'), 'Keliohesten' ('The Horse of Kelio') and 'Morgenrøde' ('Dawn') are strong, hypnotic, shimmering and deeply beautiful.

The lyrics, now translated into English and other languages on the Burzum website, are excellent.

While 'Belus' isn't as good as Varg's masterpiece 'Hvis Lyset Tar Oss', it stands alongside his other albums and is musically perhaps most similar to 'Filosofem'. It's good to see Varg out in the 'world' again, continuing his artistic mission and offending so many repressed, politically correct idiots by his mere existence. 'Belus' is an album I will listen to many times in the future.

Welcome back...
