"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 albums lyrics. Umskiptar expands BURZUMs 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 BURZUMs lyrics. Umskiptar follows 2011s 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.
