So maybe watch this fascinating documentary on Black Metal, involving many of the scene’s iconic musicians, with lots of info on the violent uprisings in Norwegian Black Metal, and a substantial interview with Varg.
I’m not gonna get into Varg, his politics, life choices, etc., but there is no denying his vast influence and his interesting transformation from the savage brutality of his recordings with Old Funeral, Mayhem and early Burzum, to the addition of synthesizers, ambient melody, and pagan/folk themes which dominate a large part of Burzum’s catalog. Vikernes work in this area changed the soundscape of Black Metal, and, in my opinion, for the better.
I can’t believe that this video has a VH1 stamp on it. Ha! The only official Burzum video
