Burzum - Fallen
« on: 14 January 2011, 22:41:29 »

From Burzum.org:



Tracklist:
Fra Verdenstreet (From The World Tree(
Jeg Faller (I Am Falling)
Valen (Fallen)
Vanvidd (Madness)
Enhver Til Sitt (Each Man To His Own, meaning "Each Man Gets What He Deserves")
Budstikken (The Message)
Til Hel Og Tilbake Igjen (To Hel And Back Again)

Musically "Fallen" is like a cross between "Belus" and something new, inspired more by the début album and "Det Som Engang Var" than by "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss" or "Filosofem". The sound is more dynamic – we mastered the album as if it was classical music – and I was more experimental than I was on "Belus" in all respects. Lyricwise it is similar to the début album, in the way that it is more personal and focuses on existential issues, but the mythological untertone known from "Belus" is still there. I have also included some ambient tracks – a short introduction and a longer conclusion.

"Fallen" was recorded and mixed during two weeks in Grieghallen studios, using a Spectar bass with alembic electronics on a VOX AC50 amp from 1965, a Ludwig drum kit (with a 26 inch kick) from 1975, a Neumann M149 microphone and stereo Schoeps CMTS 501 U microhpones for vocals, an OBH Nordica Harmony 6487, a custom Stig instrument and a Peavey 23 guitar on a Peavey 6505 (120 Watt) amp.

The picture on the front cover of "Fallen" is a part of a painting, "Élégie" (Eng. "Elegy"), by William Adolphe Bouguereau.

PS. Yes, both "Fallen" and "Valen" translates into English as "Fallen".

"Fallen" will be released worldwide on Byelobog Productions on the 7th March 2011.

I hope it will be better than Belus.

Belus was a bit weird. I get why people found it boring, and I didn't really like the vocals. I did like the songs themselves though! Glemselens elv and Morgenrøde are my favourites, because I think these are among the best non-agressive black metal I've heard. It's minimalistic, emotional, drawn out... it's Burzum.

I'm really looking forward to Fallen :D I'm glad Varg Vikernes decided to continue producing albums each year, like in the old days. Metal bands nowdays always wait 4-5 years between releases :/

It leaked. YouTube is flooded with all the songs, so if anyone want a listen they're all there :)

I think it is better than Belus. There's ALOT of clean vocals, but they are very good. Still, the best parts are the melodies and song-structures. Varg is a master when it comes to creating complex atmospheres.

The ablum's out now, and it's getting very nice reactions all over the internet since it leaked a few weeks earlier.

Did you just copy the title of the thread in metal-arcives? Read the article.

Sorry for sounding (reading?) bitchy there. You are right, Vikernes outright denied any connection with Breivik, dismissing him as a "Zionist, Christian puppet". I don't like Vikernes personally, although Burzum is my favourite band, but him being a terrorist, or planning a massacre... I don't think so.
