Burzum - Fallen

It is cliché to say that the post-incarceration Burzum albums suck. It’s also cliché to say that it’s cliché. Whatever. I really don’t care to write about Fallen, but I refuse to consider this album properly approached until I have some words published about it. 374 more words

Burzum - Belus

In appreciating his contribution to the evolution of heavy metal, it’s easy to forget the horror that is Varg Vikernes. This is a man who killed his bandmate by stabbing him over twenty times,1 set fire to at least four old Christian churches,2 incited a potential “major terrorist act” in France,3 and escaped prison while on leave when armed with weapons.4 No longer considering himself a Nazi,5 Vikernes practices “Odalism,” which is a set of beliefs centered around honor, racial purity, eugenics, and rejection of Judeo-Christian “heresy” with influence from old Scandinavian pagan traditions.6 His memetic status and seemingly goofy image belie a disturbed, paranoid man who makes no secret of his hatred toward globalism and racial entanglement. 917 more words

Black Metal

Help, I Am a Black Metal Pleb

Black metal is a sadly misunderstood genre in the modern day, whilst some of the most beautiful, complex and powerful music of the last 25 years has come out of the black metal scene, we black metal listening folk are still haunted by the stereotyped caricatures of the 90’s, whilst so much black metal speaks of the of the anguish of man’s unspoken soul. 1,217 more words
