After 16 years in prison, Varg Vikernes of Burzum states in an interview with Norway's Dagbladet.no, that he has begun work on a so far untitled album.

Varg, who got released in May earlier this year, says in the interview that he has so far written 9 tracks for the album which is to be released next year. He also states that several labels has already shown interest in publishing, what is to be the first Burzum album in 10 years. He assured the fans not to worry, and that it will be a "true Burzum release".

In the interview Varg also speaks of a book he bas been writing during his imprisonment, that will feature the Norwegian Black Metal society, the murder, sentence and imprisonment through his own eyes. But it is yet to be published.

His book might be interesting... the album not

This is great news! It should be interesting to hear a "black metal" album from him after all these years. I'm pretty stoked for his book as well. Awesome news.

I wonder why he still thinks the Norwegian Black Metal scene is so damn epic. It's no different and in some cases probably weaker than other communities.

Yeah, I know, I was being sarcastic. I am fully aware of who Varg is and all his rediculous antics. I always found it so ironic that Varg got into Tolkien.

KONRAD <3'S BURZUM LOL BFF YAY!

(and for all you idiots who can't shut the fuck up about mayhem, or nazis, or whatever, try reading the writings from his website. Burzum was more influential than mayhem IMO...not to mention nobody else in the band was good enough to lay down fresh bass tracks after they kicked varg out. My father is Jewish, I'm Christian, and neither of those facts negate the fact that Burzum is fucking awesome so HAH!)

We're all sinners, you guys. Some of us just write better music than others.



Then why the hell is Kristian still writing music? His music was mediocre at best and the guy sound like a fucking canary that's being strangled while inhaling gas.

Hahahaha I think he would be in jail again soon if he knew you called him by his real name hahaha lol, and this definition of his music and his... ahem, vocal abilities haha, is one of the best things Ive heard these days haha

If you legally change your name, the new one becomes your real name. Marcel's just keeping his "metal eliticist" attitude up'n running.

Nope, nothing to do with metal elitist (or maybe in a way it is) but i am using it to pis off the fanboys, because I find it totally hilarious to the point of even pathtic that someone would change their first name because it means Christian. And especially when a person such as Varg does it, since he is so full of shit it is unbelievable. IMO he is th the person within metal who is fullest of shit of them all, surpassing such idiots as Glenn Benton by miles.

Yeah, I got that. Still it's just as ridiculous to call him that, whether it's to piss of other people or to show off that you know a bit about him. Besides, when I look back at my own life, I've head some weird views about the world when I was younger and I was dead serious about them too. I can't really say if changing my name from a christian one to one that better reflects my origins would have been within scope but I am a bit proud of my parents for considering stuff like this when they named their children. And changing your name because you don't like the old one, which millions of other people have done too btw, is by far no match for branding a cross to your forehead.
From what I know, and I can only repeat that it's not much, Vikernes wanted his music to be without connection to his person. I think he felt it would loose it's power when connected to the teenager that he was, who produced it. That is actually why many musicians choose a synonym. And he changed his name when press interest in him grew and they started to refer to him by his real name. Again, no judgement here for changing the name, but I've always sympathized with his attitude towards his own music.

Lolol he liked prison so much he wants to go back?

Very good news
The Night Wisher - 12.07.2009 at 02:42  
I think that asshole shouldn't be even released from prison , cuz he killed Mayhem guitarist and killing someone deserves alot more than 15 years in prison

Written by Throne Dweller on 10.07.2009 at 14:59

I wonder why he still thinks the Norwegian Black Metal scene is so damn epic. It's no different and in some cases probably weaker than other communities.

that is because varg vikernes played a major role in black metal fundation as it is today. and that is, he is in the scene for years, even in prison. his name is a standard for black metal music.

I am curious about it.. HAIL TO VARG!!!

My god, that guy needs to go die.
The Night Wisher - 13.07.2009 at 00:12  
He doesn't have to DIE , but he needs a lot more to be mature more and fucking responsible , killing someone (whoever is he) is a murder .
yourmomiskvlt - 13.07.2009 at 09:47  
Yes, because no one here did stupid shit as a teenager that they've regretted for the rest of their lives.

goddamn some of you kiddies need to do a lot of growing up, and I think its pretty damn obvious that Varg has, and I'm actual very interested in what Burzum will sound like after a 10 year hiatus.
Diabolos - 13.07.2009 at 13:32  
I never killed someone, even when I was a teenager

I'm... I'm fully aware of that.

I just felt obliged to say he needs to get with the times, but being in jail for so long has that repercussion.

Written by iaberis on 10.07.2009 at 12:34

His book might be interesting... the album not

Other way around for me. All the shit about the Norwegian BM scene is a mess of bravado and speculation, whereas Burzum is a real gem. If Varg's going back to guitars and stuff as it seems like he is, this album will be fantastic.
