It's quite a bizarre attitude to consider oneself a fully fledged BM fan and not have malleable views regarding production. There's nothing worse in the world of metal, not just black metal, than too much polish and sheen. If you can't extend yourself to see the virtues of muddy production and gritty musicianship then I wouldn't recommend black metal.


I'm not sure if you're referring to me in this post, so I won't take it personal.I think you're mistaking intentionally muddy production with no production. Old Burzum has no production at all, and it sounds as it sounds, tastes and preferences aside.

There are hundreds of examples of how "bad" production, when used on purpose, can produce magnificent results. Satyricon, Emperor, Satanic Warmaster, Ulver, Funeral Mist, Mayhem, Nokturnal Mortum, Carpathian Forest, Darkthrone, to name just a few. I am perfectly aware of how inherent "muddy" production is to black metal, and I can appreciate it. Burzum does not fit into this category.

Nah it's not at you, but I still don't get the distinction between "bad" and "no" production: "Old Burzum has no production at all, and it sounds as it sounds" - in my opinion that's entirely down to the person listening and whether or not they like the music. Many Burzum albums have what I would consider great production that perfectly fits the music at hand and isn't different from what many other bands have done. Saying Burzum does not fit the early conceptions of poor production is like saying Burzum don't fit early black metal. Black metal is the exemplar of shitty production that still has a place in the modern era, and as such can be extended to other forms of metal, such as doom.

i am afraid that he will ruin the old versions of the songs and piss over his own legacy.


This is almost always what happens when bands re-record old songs.
However, in Burzum's case, the old albums sounded like utter crap, so it can hardly get worse.

i agree with you till some point...i like that crappy sound of early norvegian bm...but as i said i agree that a little improvement of production can be good for that Burzum songs,but than again i dont think that Varg is capable to improve today...We will see how it will turn out...

I haven't heard any of the re-recorded tracks, but I don't particularly have high hopes.
