BURZUM - Det Som Engang Var CD

‘Det Som Engang Var’ is very much a transitional album, acting as a stepping stone between the harsher, more aggressive vibe of the self titled debut and the ‘Aske’ EP, and the more expansive, orchestrated atmospheres that would permeate ‘Hvis Lyset Tar Oss’ and ‘Filosofem’. ‘Det Som…’ may not be Varg’s masterpiece, but it’s an incredibly important record, not only in terms of Burzum’s musical progression, but also in introducing ambient textures to the black metal genre as a whole. In the 24 years that have passed since it was first let loose upon the world, it’s eerie power has not diminished in the slightest, meaning now is a good a time as ever to dim the lights, turn up the stereo and bask in its dark majesty… Official brazilian CD release.
