What can anyone say about the most radical album ever written in black/avant-garde metal history? "Written in Waters" is the first and only full-length album of Ved Buens Ende, but it can indisputably be described as "one of the best" or "classical". And this title shouldn't sound extravagant. If there's an album that single-handedly opened the minds of black or avant-garde metalheads, this is the one. "Written in Waters" is a journey to the unknown, inexperienced and bizarre side of black metal, though it trespasses its territory. It attempts a completely different approach to emotions, hard to follow at the beginning, but very rewarding in the end.

You know, I was just thinking about re-uploading the art for this, but almost did the other version, and then got to thinking... is there different releases for this album with different album art? Do they sound any different? From what I found, the version with the other album art may be some kind of promo version... Not sure what's going on here, wondering if anyone else knows anything about this.

Your preferred cover is for the reissued and remastered version, I think. It was released by Candlelight Records and that's probably the only version we can get while downloading/stealing this album. I'm not 100% sure though.

Huh. Now I'm wondering if the original sounded any better than the remaster...

Oh I know, I just meant that assuming you were correct, I'd want to know if the original sounded any better. Seems so little is known about this band/album...

How this album can have only 64 votes is beyond my comprehension...

It is underrated, but the fact that without this band we wouldn't have so many avantgarde black metal bands like Deathspell Omega, and few fans of those bands even recognize VBE
