16:39 - Redn1ght Nah, I wouldn't buy CDs from Amazon due to auto-rip feature. You know, I'm not able to access it and there's no way to turn it off.
16:13 - LeKiwi To be fair, Amazon had a couple of really obscure artists from Bandcamp that are on my list, but most of them aren't to be found...
16:10 - Cynic Metalhead I agree with Apoth. In India, getting Ace of Spades record is almost equal to get an underground record.
16:06 - Apothecary Yes, even Bandcamp level obscure. For example... kinda disappointed that this is the only COA album on there, but it's better than nothing [link]
16:04 - LeKiwi Depends how obscure. Bandcamp-level obscure? Probably not. But that's interesting to know that Amazon has such a wide selection of music...
15:51 - Apothecary Yeah, Amazon is the best for finding underground stuff, very rarely have I ever searched for an album on there and been unable to find it
15:45 - s_t_s I usually browse bands profiles here, then listen to them at YT and if I like them, I dl and burn tracks. In the end when I enjoy a band I buy a copy from a USA seller at Amazon. It's a lot cheaper than buying here, in France :)
Dauði Baldrs is Burzum's first album after Varg Vikernes got arrested; and as such it is the first one that was written exclusively in prison. Because he had no access to any other instrument, Varg could only use a synthesizer to record this album. Additionally, it is said he recorded the whole album on a simple tape recorder in his cell.
I really like this album. It's such grim cheesiness... Like Jawas dissecting a human corpse, or somesuch grimness. I do like the atmosphere, but I can see how a lot of people wouldn't like this album. Casio Black Metal. I reiterate - I really like this album.
This is a great album i agree, and i can see why most metal heads hate it, not exactly head banging stuff, but i have a passion for classical music and metal witch is why i love this album, the dark ambient sound was forced on varg but it was a nice change,

The only people I can see disliking this album is the "Clean vocals blah" asses. But I must say me and Grandma greatly enjoy this album on the rides to the local H-E-B.
This is a pretty good album. The absence of black metal overtones dont overshadow the haunting and hypnotic melodies that have been in burzum's career right from the start, as they are all present and correct on this album,as far as i can tell.
Actually, it HAS the dark atmosphere created in the previous Burzum albums. I like this album, especially the last two tracks. My only problem with it is that all songs are constructed barely in two or three sequences...
