Burzum (4/12/2012)


"Umskiptar", the new album from  BURZUM  will see North American release on May 22.  Finding inspiration from the verses of famous Scandinavia poem “Voluspa,” Umskiptar is a return-to-roots album. 

Says the controversial musician:  “The vocals are more important than on any previous album with a total of 66 stanzas making up the album’s lyrics.” Umskiptar expands BURZUM’s ongoing influence of Nordic folk, but for this album adds more traditional heavy metal, signature BURZUM composition, and a keener emphasis on vocal delivery – once again presented in Vikernes’ native tongue. Umskiptar (or Metamorphoses) follows the historical story that details the creation of the world and its end as dictated to Odin, a recurring character in BURZUM’s lyrics. Umskiptar follows 2011’s Fallen. Said Decibel Magazine, “pounding, primitive rhythms are lashing by fizzing, frostbitten guitar which swirls in squalls around Vikernes’ inhuman, agonizing screech; a chilling mesmerizing, unflinching mirror on a profoundly troubled soul.”
