BURZUM - Lord Of Darkness - Anthology [Candlelight Records] (CD)
Norway | Black, Ambient
Anthology release from one of black metals most controversial bands, BURZUM entitled "Lord Of Darkness". For some it's seemingly impossible to mention Burzum without having to detail Varg Vikerness' political and social viewpoints. This collection isn't for that purpose. If you really don't know the story behind the man yet, then I suggest you do a little research on the Internet. You'll find a wealth of information: some true, some wildly inaccurate but mostly somewhere in-between. The primary focus here will be Burzum the music and not the controversy that surrounds the man. This accompanying text will hopefully be seen as a starting point for those new to the band as opposed to an authoritative dissertation.
