Burzum is a musical project by Varg Vikernes (originally under the pseudonym "Count Grishnackh").

A really simple song, still good though.
John
He plays every instrument on this album, so it's safe to say that all of this music comes from one man's incredible vision.

If you read the reviews on Amazon you'll notice many people will exaggerate the merits of an album, perhaps even myself occasionaly. However, I make this statement with full conviction: This is one of the most intense records ever made. Not in terms of volume or speed but of sheer, brutal intensity. Varg is by far the most disturbing vocalist and I've ever heard and maybe the best black metal vocalist ever. The instruments are minimal and raw, you won't find any ultra technical drumming or fancy riffing here, yet it is brutal in it's simplicity. Besides less stuff going on in the background leaves more room for Vargs ungodly growls and that isn't a bad thing. I guess this album isn't for everyone. If you have to have your black metal perfectly produced and laden with keyboards, solos, etc. this isn't for you. And some people can't see past the things Varg has done or said. I don't agree with everything he has said or done but this is a review about the music, not the man. Buy this today if you think you can handle it.

If listened to with the right pair of ears, Burzum's music is very rewarding.
A warning to all metalheads out there: Burzum's music shows almost no merit in the areas of musicianship, songwriting or production. The guitar riffs aren't very technical or original, the song structure is pretty basic and it sounds like it was recorded with a dixie cup and a string attached to a phonograph. Hell, the lyrics aren't even all that good...but these minute details didn't fray the listening experience I had. This is absolute brilliance in musical self-expression.
Some music is sad (Anathema, later Opeth), much is upbeat, other bands try too hard to be shocking or scary, but the one feeling i've never had listening to music is absolute _dread_, and that's exactly what feeling Varg's screams and painful dirges inflict in me. Like i said, it's not technical or very original at all, but something about the way Varg performs his music makes it very appealing to me. He has an AMAZING and authentic black metal voice. I swear when you hear this guy shrieking, it sounds like they've been delivered from the deepest bowels of hell. I think the only way i could scream with such earnest pain and terror is if i was being sodomized with a barbed soldering iron.
The riffs and lyrics aren't _terrible_, but with Varg's delivery, it definitely gets the point across. The bad production actually adds a little charm to the music, similar to punk rock. The bad recording indicates that Varg only cared about writing the songs and performing the best he could with the budget he had, and adds a dark, ethereal atmosphere to the music.
Almost all of us metalheads are pretty open-minded about music in general, but unfortunately Burzum would just not be well-received by most of the underground metal community. Listen intently to some samples, or download some mp3's before buying.

I'm sure if you're fortunate enough to be reading this, you know about the bad choices Varg has made in his life. I have to admit, that's what lured me into actually buying this. I was curious to see if the contraversy was all that attracted people and if it was what caused them to praise Varg's albums. After listening to this for the first time, many years ago, it's safe to say that I was immediately amazed with the music. The soundscapes he creates are magnificently dark and torturous. He plays every instrument on this album, so it's safe to say that all of this music comes from one man's incredible vision. This album, while not as cohesive as "Det Som Engang Var", still remains as my favorite Burzum recording. "My Journey To The Stars" is absolutely beautiful. This man is a musical genius. He paints pictures that take you to shadowy realms you never thought existed. For those of you that find beauty in darkness, take a look at the album cover. Now, to me it is a beautiful picture, but if you don't think so, then maybe it's not for you. If you do, however, perhaps you've come to the right place, because that is the kind of vision that this music gives you. If you've heard the history and are wondering what the music of a tortured artist sounds like, then this is highly recommended. It can be an extremely rewarding experience.

All perfect terms to describe this album. Burzum's first album (plus Aske ep) would be the type of things many BM bands (many in the US) would later try and copy, However, here is the originial! Varg, has to be one of the greatest BM vocals ever, up there with Ihsahn, Nocturno Culto and Daemon. Sometimes, with "grim" Black Metal, the lyrics can seem forced and cliche, exspecially depending on the vocal delivery of the vocalist. However, with his vocals, he could be singing nursery rhymes and he could still convince you. The guitars, not too hard (never said it had to be the hardest thing to play to be great.) the same story for everything else. Easy t o play or not, the must is still great in my opinion and this is one of the 20 most mandatory Black Metal albums ever recorded. You can just feel the pain and suffering in this album. You almost feel dirty after listening to this. To touch on another subject many others have, yes I think Varg has now become a childish, racist neo-nazi jackass, not to mention a murderer. All of that pushed to the side though, this is still a classic album and influenced many many bands within the genre.

1. Feeble Screams From Forests Unknown (7:28) The cd starts with about two seconds of filthy keyboard notes before going full blast into one of the best songs here. With a simple yet memorable guitar riff going through most of the song, then once Varg kicks in on vocals the song goes to another planet. Great way to kick off an album. 5/5

2. Ea, Lord of the Depths (4:52) "The Head is a Head of a Serpent
