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.
"Suddenly, life has new meaning..." It's hard not to feel a chill down the spine as Varg sings that line...or during the entirety of 'Beholding the Daughters of the Firmament', where a poem by Tolkien is changed to mirror the dreadful cold of winter and ancient night. Yes, this is a quintessential Burzumic release...
There is not another album like this in the whole world, but be warned, it might take you places you don't want to go...maybe into the silence of a forest at night with a burning stave church at your back as you walk into exile from the rest of humanity...
Seriously though, this bridges the gap between ambient and metal. Did it need to be done? Well let me ask another question, do you need to eat brains?
Don't question, just lie back and listen...
