BURZUM - Det Som Engang Var (12" Gatefold LP on Black Vinyl)
Norway | Black, Ambient
Burzum's still excellent, very essential Modern Norwegian Black Metal music released on Misanthropy Records (1993, chronologically the third full-length recording, & Misanthropy's 2nd. Burzum disc) re-released on Back on Black Records. The compositions still rage & rock (strong Bathory influence!), but a maturity shows through with the expansion of sounds including melancholy, dark-ambient atmospheres & regal instrumentals (along the lines of Mortiis); this album may hold the widest appeal, & as with all Burzum's music, is highly recommended! The title translates to "What Once Was".
