For a long time I had overlooked most of Burzum's material. Not that it didn't sound appealing from what people were saying, but I just had the whole "I'll get to it later" attitude for a while. Well, I'm glad I didn't decide to wait any longer, because now I'm able to see why so many people enjoy Burzum.

Just give it to me so I can make money off it no problem.

This atmospheric haze of an iconic journey dawned the shift of metal pissing off the parents into pissing off the metal fans. That is one of many features alone that can't be taken away from this. Even after the light takes us.

No idea how people can think this is better than Filosofem. Even with the long ambient tracks that album dunks on this. Varg's vocals are terrible here.

Not sure I'd agree too but with an obviously less substantial margin. I fell for this one eventually after Fiosofem and for what felt natural but that's because I heard both together. I can't help but play one after the other whenever I get the chance to delve into my collection. With this one, it's lesser prolonging to get going however was one of the clearest that had an intro/outroduction presented. What made Filosofem perfect was the distinction to sound production from all of its outlets and its arguably lesser refined on Hvis, although both match the art used perfectly. Saying that the vocal performance is still memorable having 'its moments' that you just go with along the journey. With that said on top it is not an easy thing to make memorable vocal lines in extreme, or in this case, a style used so along with its other aspects this overall was extremely forward-thinking for its time. Filosofem took that new uncharted territory into many unequivocal places.

Nah does not matter!
TOGETHER with Burzum and all his fans, you'd sink down the history trash can.
