Burzum – Rundgang Um Die Transzendentale Säule Der Singularität
July 27th, 2009 by Haste
OK, bear with me on this one. When I started this blog I thought about posting up metal tunes and decided against it as I’m well aware that it might scare a few people off, even if it is a type of music that I love.
This tune is from infamous Norwegian black metal arist Burzum AKA Varg Vikernes taken from his Filosofem album. He’s kind of a cult figure and completely not a nice bloke but, sadly, he made incredible music before he decided to go round killing people and generally being a naughty boy. The black metal tag is probably a bit unfair for most of this album as a lot of it does share similarities with ambient music, albeit ambient stuff with incredibly distorted guitars and live drums. If you’re willing to take a chance then check the album out, specifically the track Dunkleheit which is absolutely amazing.
For those who are scared by guitars here’s part of a 25 minute(!) electronic piece from the album. It doesn’t do much but it somehow works
