    Say what you will about Varg Vikernes, but the man is a musical visionary. His work is pivotal in two separate genres, black metal and dungeon synth. He masterfully blended the dark side of ambient and the atmosphere of black metal

      Exactly I don't agree with him on a HOLE lot of shit but there's no denying without him Black Metal and in the same vein Deathcore wouldn't be where it is I might even go as far to say it might not even exist without him. But that's just me 🤷‍♂️

      ​@DoktorGlib I'd argue he actually believes it. If you even skim his and his wife's twitter or some of their posts or other works, yeah it's legit. I mean at the end of the day there's no difference between him and some random dude working a warehouse job with the same beliefs posting on twitter except he managed to make exceptionally good music that was massively influential for various genres.

    Burzum is definitely one of those times where you have to separate the artist from their music. Most people in that scene had/has extreme views and anyone familiar with the scene knows that. He just went further than most with his.

    "Jesus Død" from the same album is awesome too, although more straightforward in terms of what you'd expect from the genre, even though it's still got that hypnotic repetitiveness running throughout. And the track "Rundgang um die transzendentale Säule der Singularität" you've probably heard elsewhere some time or another. You should REALLY REALLY give that a go while lying in your bed and just let it wash over you :)

    The album was recorded under purposefully bad conditions. Varg Vikernes used a set of headphones as a mic to record Filosofem. He wanted a raw sound and he got it... this record is so underrated.

    Varg's control of mood and long form narrative music is pretty much unrivaled in metal. Hvis Lyset Tar Oss, despite how simple it sounds on the surface, is the most sophisticated metal album of all time in my opinion.

  • Revyl Okesh

    Yeah. Whatever you may think of Varg as a person (in my case, not much) but his musical legacy in both Black Metal and Dungeon Synth is undeniable.

  • Spinning Black Circles - the vinyl lair

    Loooove Burzum. Please you have to listen to the third track from this masterpiece. It’s called “Erblicket die Töchter des Firmaments”. Imo, the best song on the album. I’m so glad you checked out Dunkelheit, which is a great opening song. But the third track is sooooo amazing and I hope we get to see you react to that one. :)

    This Burzum album really solidified some kind of change in me regarding black metal, in that it really makes apparent to seek all of the hidden melodies under the grime and repetition. And black metal is particularly good at following slow melodic patterns even if they hide it inside the tremolo. Everyone likes black metal for different reasons though, but this is my reason why I'll keep listening to BM music. Live it's always complicated though, it seems it's tricky to get the mix right depending on the venue and where you stand in the venue etc. I would recommend a solid knowledge of the songs when watching BM live, so that you can fill in the gaps in your head if needed.

    Great reaction, Kaiya! Burzum: the first 4 LPs and the EP "Aske" (1992 to 1996): masterful! I suggest the reaction, analysis of the following songs from these albums: Feeble Screams from Forests Unknown, Spell of Destruction, Key to the Gate, En ring til aa herske, Lost Wisdom, all tracks from the album "Hvis Lyset tar oss", A Lost Forgotten Sad Spirit (this song is a masterpiece! I recommend this song to be reviewed by you next, Kaiya!), Dunkelheit (there's already been a great reaction from you, Kaiya), Jesu dod, Beholding the Daughters of the Firmament...

    @imakaiya Varg recorded all the instruments himself. Dude is a legendary musician. Varg was influenced by electronic and EDM, btw. Varg's music is simplistic like EDM. Repetitive simple riffs that create more of an ambient atmosphere than riff salad. The true essence of Black metal in my opinion. Hopefully youll react to Glemeselen Elv.

  • Not Tim Burton
    Not Tim Burton 20 днів тому

    Burzum might be my favorite blackmetal material, after Emperor's Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk anyway. Simple and repetitive, but very effective. He does have some songs that are a little more varied though, like Key to the Gate, probably my favorite Burzum track. Compositionally it reminds me of the few times in my life when I totally lost my shit - represented by alternating between riffs bashing out tritones and a more ballsy sounding typical heavymetal riff. Insanity and aggression, short lived, and followed by a daze after the adrenaline runs out - represented by rocking back and fourth between two arpeggios without drumming while the vocals switch from screaming to 'ah's. Then, after the dazed period of shame for acting like an idiot, the logical mind returns and tries to solve the problem - represented by a series of arpeggios moving around the neck of the guitar. It is played through the first time with one ending, but it is not the right solution, so he wipes it away and then plays through again and ends with another idea - and this is revealed to be the correct solution with an "ah ha!" moment - landing on two stacked tritones and sitting there for a bit. Interesting that the interval used to invoke madness in the beginning of the song is now used to describe a solution being found. Then there is a brief "twinkly magical" bit where he is picking an arpeggio in an interesting way, this sounds like rolling the solution around in his head. "Is this right? Have I really discovered the path forward?!" Then the last half of the song is more hopeful sounding, a bit jerky and stilted at first, but becoming more and more like "campfire" or "cowboy" chords with some melody over top, seemingly becoming more and more convicted to this new path forward. The last bit of lyrics are a choked-out "one day..." Goddamn.

  • Dedrater

    The reason why the keyboard melody seems ahead of its time and like it could fit on a hip hop track is because hip hop shares a lot of DNA with house/techno/trance music, which Varg was a huge fan of. So-called white label techno was something that he was drawn to for its repetitive, hypnotic effect, which was also part of the goal of the Burzum project. Actually, when hip hop was in its infancy during this time, it was more sample heavy, and a lot of what makes it sound "modern" now was already old for underground sister genres of electronic music.

    Much of the artwork on Varg Vikernes's albums are works by his favorite Norwegian painter, Theodor Kittelsen. Kittelsen's main themes involved Norwegian folklore. The painting you see here is "Op under Fjeldet toner en Lur", (Up in the Hills a Clarion Call Rings Out), painted in 1900.

    More interesting fact is he recorded first four albums within a year. Four different sessions during a year. Four albums that sounded differently. And his band didn’t appeared as a Mayhem fallout. He had this band before and was a guest session bassist on De Mysteriis dom…by Mayhem.

    You're the best Kaiya, for trying it all :) Well, I honestly do like the first Varg albums a lot. The atmosphere and all. Were they beaten in their own game? certainly.
    I think a lot of BM guys overate him. At least, those who claim he single handedly shaped BM in all aspects.
    Varg the person, is despicable. Leaving aside his spreading demented, ultra racist/ns conspiracies, his illiterate misreading of JRRT, the gaslighting he does to nearly anything and his insanely high ranking on the "Dark Triad" (especially narcissism), he is an utter hypocrite. Btw, he also believes in the "4chan/8chan hygiene industry" conspiracy. Yup.

    @ around 0:59 he didnt start the band after the fallout, it was before Dead self deleted even. He did play in Mayhem but by that time most of his early stuff was already or fully written and mostly recorded.
    Also this is the only Album that sounds like this from him. I Prefer his first album and some from his second a bit more but Filosofem is awesome.

    No guitar amp. was used, instead he just plugued the guitar into is brother's stereo system. For vocals he just used the mic from a headset. Also he was always a fan of electronic music, he used to go to a techno club called Phoenix and just stand in a corner listening to it and get inspiration for his band. About that iconic album cover: The album cover and booklet contain extensive artwork by the Norwegian painter Theodor Kittelsen (1857-1914), the front cover is a close-up of his 1900 painting entitled 'Op Under Fjeldet Toner en Lur' (Norwegian for 'Up in the Hills a Clarion Call Rings Out'), which features a woman playing a birch trumpet.

    I personally believe that Varg himself is a reprehensible douchebag, but as a musician? And those two albums? Solid gold.
    Those two are going with me when I depart.

    Burzum was always his band, before he played bass on the Mayhem album, and before the murder; Euronymous actually wrote one of the solos, I think in the song Ea, Lord of the Depths.
    Many would say Burzum is far and away the best. I've communicated occasionally or sporadically with Varg over the years. The old YT channel was good times; they still have the video available here wherein he explains the night of the murder though.
    Something like, "about a day [night?] in 1993 that changed black metal forever"
    Pardon the essay, felt like it.

    Find the crappiest somewhat broken equipment and record it in a shitty place like an abandoned gas station bathroom and you'll have the quintessential 90's sound Burzum was going for. Then you have Emperor, who did The Wall Of Sound overproduced don't let the listener have a moment blast them into the wall style sound which is equally what I love about this sub genre. Mayhem walked the line between both styles and still do.

    Compared to a lot of his older recordings, his vocals on Filosfem were thankfully buried! His records were intentionally made to sound crappy and a lot of the previous ones did, but this was different, except for that extremely long song at the end, every song is a masterpiece, maybe because, and i'm not sure of the exact timeline, this was released in 1996 but was recorded sometime in early '93 around the time that shit was really hitting the fan in the Norwegian BM scene and this was gonna be his last shot to make a lasting impression

    Extremely simple riffing and raw production (on purpose): evil oozing from every note, this song is the exact definition of "dunkelheit" (darkness in Norse), so much so that it could have easily been without lyrics and your hair would still stand up. Knowing the twisted mind behind this make it sound even grimmer.
    I've always liked Burzum's music and the "environment" he created. It's not up to me judging his behaviours or ideas, I'll stick to the music.

    If you can reconcile the fact that Burzum's Count Grishnackh (Varg Vikernes) murdered Mayhem's guitarist Euronymous is cold blood, the guy had talent... but it does not excuse his actions or descent into nazism and white supremacist ideologies.
    Granted, Varg wasn't alone... (the late) Jon Nodveidt of Dissection and Faust (Bard Eithun) drummer of Emperor had both committed murders in Scandinavia in the 90's. The question is: How much can we overlook?
    Also, what does the character of the artist say about his art?
    I think Tom Araya of Slayer dissed them, calling the 90's black metal scene as "creepy Norwegian guys who are freezing their brains out..."
    Phil Rudd, drummer of AC/DC was arrested in New Zealand and convicted of a "murder-for'hire" plot after relapsing on me++amphe+amines... Does he get a pass? How about As I Lay Dying's Tim Lambesis touting Christianity and then attempting to murder his then-wife?
    It's subjective how much we, as people, are willing to overlook... Bill Cosby has been blacklisted after his sexual assault actions came to light... Actor Danny Masterson of "That 70's Show" has been convicted on multiple rape charges... But their TV shows are iconic.
    Ted Nugent used to be an iconic rock guitarist, but his descent into white supremacy, nationalism and right wing fascism ... not to mention his history w/ sleeping w/ underage girls and his fathering numerous children while married... That has demolished his legacy.
    After Iced Earth's Jon Schaffer was arrested for his terrorist attack on the Capitol on 1/6, u can still call him a talented songwriter... but he is no longer to be associated w/ the metal scene or welcome anymore ... Ironically, Varg admitted later that he was not a metal fan - he was 'following the trend' so to speak (Mayhem's vocalist Attila Csihar recalled that Varg seemed to prefer 'hard, indie techno' when they met)
    I leave those decisions up to the people - pick the art u choose to admire. The art is not as guilty as the artist... but the art is still an expression of his flawed soul 😈

    The issue here is that Varg's controversies are not only in 'The past' he's an open and proud Nationalist of the white variety if you know what I mean (Otherwise youtube censorship kicks in) so I cannot separate the art from the artist in this case, mostly because there's a huge problem of 'mixed vibes' in the metal scene: The reason why Varg and other 'Nationalists' of *that* type continue to be popular in metal is because so many people, includying almost everybody here in this comment section, keep an attitude of 'I just love the music but I am somehow fully '"apolitical" as if that was a thing' instead of just stop supporting this kind of vile intolerance to happen right in their genre to a point it can only be described as complicit complacency.
    I am not joking when I say that people tolerating this kind of stuff along with many other examples is why I refuse to call myself a metalhead anymore or wear the t-shirts, go to the concerts, etc. I just do not want to be associated even by close proximity, with what Varg represents.

    Hot take. This is really boring music to me. I know, I know. Come at me if you will but this shit is just a snoozefest to me. The music goes nowhere. Not a huge Black Metal fan but there are a few bands I like. This is way too uninteresting for me. And yeah, the raw sound sounds terrible. I can't do it lol. But Varg fans can have at it. Respect.
