Viking: Burzum

Saw him mentioned earlier today. I was a fan when I was a lad, and I revisited "Filosofem". This record is still not crap. Fuck.

Guy you'd love to hate, etc.

Viking: Burzum.

PS. I kind of expect Kerble to shoot this threat into outer space.

Since this was posted under the "Viking" catagory, are we evaluating more than the music? Because i haven't heard any of his music, but that whole thing where he killed a dude was kinda lame, although it made for pretty compelling reading.

totally not crap pre-daudi baldrs. the quality of the earlier music even makes up for the prime lameness of the later. filosofem is nearly perfect. i am speaking only for the music, of course. vårgsmål, his philosophy, murder, all that jazz, crap.

It is also rumoured that he made a nice stew after the Mayhem leadsinger guy blew his brains out.

A nice, brainy stew.

I just read up on him a little, it appears he will be released from prison sometime next month.

In October 2003, Vikernes failed to return to his low-security prison in Tønsberg, Norway, after having been granted a short leave. Vikernes was apprehended by police after hijacking a car. He was found with an unloaded AG-3 assault rifle, 700 rounds of ammunition, a number of smaller weapons, a handheld GPS system, communications systems, a PC, military uniforms, a bullet proof vest, and camouflage clothes [3]. He received an additional sentence of 14 months for the incident – somewhat less than the 22 months wanted at the trial – and has been moved to a maximum-security prison in Trondheim. Varg stated in a recent interview that he should, under Norwegian law, be released in mid-2006 on probation, though he is not very optimistic.

I believe his leanings toward the Casio have largely been determined by security regulations in his new home.

I doubt the decision to bust out the Casio on our asses was made willingly.

You are correct in your assumption. Varg actually has been allowed to have an acoustic guitar in his cell and is apparently writing new material. Should he be released on parole next month, there will be new Burzum material released in the future. Supposedly it will be in the vein of "Filosofem." Varg is an interesting person for certain. I may not agree with everything he has to say (all needs to be taken with a grain of salt) but I respect his intelligence. His writings always seem to at least be thought provoking. Varg's recent writings can be found on the official Burzum site: www.burzum.org Most are esoteric writings not of much relevance to anyone who is not pagan. Although the "Burzum Story" pieces may be interesting to fans of his music. There are also a few interviews and Varg's review of "Lords of Chaos" in which he states his position on those events.

i just picked up Hvis lyset tar oss today. musically, i think it's fantastic. the recording of the vocals leaves something to be desired (could they be mixed down? reverb'd? compressed? _something_ to make them sound less like a guy screaming into a four-track in his bedroom.) but on the whole i'm very impressed.

as for him, as a person/viking, he's... interesting. i won't say one way or another. i think he makes some fascinating points at times, but i also think he's fucking nuts. the mythical racism is what i find least appealing. still, i find him interesting, in the same way that someone would find John Wayne Gacy or Jeffery Dahmer to be "interesting"

not crap.

Vicious, insane anti-Semite making crap music. But I guess that doesn't necessarily preclude him from being a good Viking.

Living 1300 years too late, however, does make him possibly the worst Viking ever.

CRAP

I think it makes him an unfortunate viking, don't you?

Burzum's one of the only black metal bands I listen to. Most of them are crap, and trying too hard, but Varg made some good music. Dunkelheit is worth getting if you want to hear Burzum. I don't agree with his views, but he's far from dumb. The man's done his homework on paganism, and christianity, and written, I think, three or four books about pagan history. Darkthrone's good too, if you're into black metal.

Filosofem is the only black metal album I can listen to without giggling.

He also made it onto some VH1 countown of "most metal moments" for eating is friends brains, or whatever he claimed to do. I don't think you can get a more metal than that.

not crap. wf 10 for being a fucking murderer.

I reckon one of the two jews still living in Norway told him exactly that.

I was recently honored by a visit from the Man when spinning this particular record real loud in the dead of night (hey, it was my frikkin' birthday, okay?).

After some deliberating ("yes, officer, no sir") the copper thoughtfully raised his eyesbrows and asked: "So what the fuck are you listening to anyway, guy?"

I think you're thinking of the guy from Absurd. He was on the lam from Germany in the U.S. Apparently, he was being put up in the States by people from The National Alliance.

I think it is also interesting to point out the similarities between Burzum and Big Black, at least in terms of the approach of the electric guitar as sonic/textural device, which becomes apparent here.

I listen to this song, and I immediately think "Precious Thing."

Also, zom-zom's avatar is in that video.

So was the Pope.

It doesn't make his technique during Mass any less impressive.
