THIS one is pure evil and the most strange "movie" ever...brute!


One of my personal favorites.

It's not evil nor strange (unless you have your brain set inactive), but painful and disturbing.

Again, Nattramn somehow ties into this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fK9s4gG4wmM


strange in the way that it differs from any movie experience I ever had and evil as I felt the atmosphere as utter blasphemic when it comes to the way Man and God are portraid - no hope, no love, no ethics, no good if you like.

Both movies are shit, anyway. If you like movies because you want to get entertained, then you don't want to see such depressing crap.


I have next to zero interest in film as 'entertainment'.... I tend to be drawn into the deeper, or at least unusual stuff.....same as music.

BTW you think the new Burzum will leak before the release? Also does anyone have any info about there being a vinyl release? Amazon only says MP3 ( Evil or Very Mad ) and CD. I don't want either, to be honest.

Plastichead has the vinyl pre-order up. They have for a while. For some reason, that charge on my credit card has been "pending" for a while. Maybe they won't charge it until it's shipped...

My charge went through, maybe it's just your bank being slow.
And I definitely think this will leak. I'm shocked it hasn't already. Also, Anti Xtian Terror Recs has the DLP for preorder as well, $26. Check 'em out. The notice isn't on their site, so just email the guy at undergroundchaos666@yahoo.com. Very very reliable guy.

Quote:
How much did the experience of spending 16 years in prison change you as
a person and an artist?

16 years anywhere would have changed me per se. My time in prison was
not particularly problematic. I was not a rat, nor a rapist, a Muslim or
paedophile, so the others prisoners had no problem with me. I was not a
junkie or a drunk, and I had no mental problems, so I had no personal
demons to fight whilst there. I was anti-Christian, anti-American and
had killed a guy with a knife, so the Muslims had no problem with me. I
was polite and reasonable, so the guards had no problem with me. I was
treated like radioactive shit by the authorities, so pretty much all the
other prisoners thought very well of me. To me this was like a walk in
the park. It was like a 16 year long stay in a monastery, only I could
get weekly and private visits from up to three persons at the time, and
it enabled me to read books I otherwise would not have read - and of
course it kept me physically fit. The isolation - I spent 10 of the 16
years in partial (23 hours a day) or full (24 hours a day) solitary
confinement - strengthened my traits, so to speak, making me more
extreme, both as an artist and as a person, both in a good way, and I
guess - alas! - in a bad way.



16 years with a 8:00 to 16:00 job and a life in that filthy sewer they
call Oslo would have changed me more... Not having defended my life
would have changed me more too. I did the right thing, served 16 years
for it, grew stronger and wiser, and that was it. No big deal.



Do you have any regrets about not being able to fully pursue your
artistic career during that time?

Yes and no. "Yes" because I could have made more music, at least one
album every year. "No" because I did other meaningful and interesting
things instead. Had I been able to make music I would not have been able
to learn so much about, for instance, mythology. On a personal level I
value my knowledge about mythology alone more than my ability to make
music. I would not exchange that knowledge for any number of Burzum
albums.



Have you always intended to bring Burzum back and to make more music?

No. Not sure if I will continue after this record either. If I enjoy the
recording process and the album is not perfect I think I might continue.
If it's perfect I don't need to make another one...



What do you think that Burzum represents (and provides on a musical
level) that no one else can emulate?

My personality mixed with a complete contempt for conformity. I abide by
no rules, and generate music oblivious to what is going on in the music
world, so I am not influenced by others (I haven't heard a new album
since Darkthrone's Transilvanian Hunger, in 1996, and don't want to
either). My music is not as much tainted by alien influences. It is pure
Burzum. In a sense I left the music world in the year 1993, to live in
oblivion, and I re-entered the music world in 2009, so musically I am
still in 1993. My music was never exposed to the blight of time. Burzum
today is in many ways an anachronism, and I think at least some of you
might think that is a good thing.



You have stated that Belus will feature some songs that date back to the
late '80s and early '90...how do the old songs fit into the overall
concept of the record?

Only the music is old. The lyrics are new. Anyhow, I still make music as
if it was 1993, so... The Uruk-Hai track is musically very different
from the others, though, being made in 1988 and sounding more like Ea!
Lord of the Depths than any of my other tracks, so I might just publish
it as a free download or something. Not sure what to do yet. We'll find
out.



You have also stated that the new album is "a musical and lyrical
description of the White God and the annual events of his life". Why did
you choose this particular theme for your first post-prison album?

Mythology is what I know best. Death, the mystic visit to the realm of
the dead and the magnificent return from the realm of the dead is a
subject that has fascinated man for ages. The White God, Belus, stays
white, i.e. innocent and pure, because he does this every year, and
every time he travels across the river of forgetfulness. He dies and is
rejuvenated and reborn over and over again, indefinitely - as is
everything else in nature. My main focus is the pre-mythology sorcerer
and his approach to this problem, his personal symbolic death and
journey into the realm of the dead, and his symbolic "rebirth". I place
the myth alongside the sorcerer's journey, and show the origin of the
myth. Nobody has done that before.



The fact that this is my first post-prison album is completely
irrelevant, by the way. The original work title for this album was
Baldurs Tilbakekomst ("The Return of Baldur"), but I really did not want
all those trolls out there to ruin the atmosphere for everyone by
claiming I had delusions about being Baldur myself, because I had just
returned from prison. My next work title, Den Hvite Guden ("The White
God"), did not work well either, because so many out there only focused
on the word "white", as if it was a terrible curse, a taboo or
something. "He said the W-word! Somebody call the f***ing police!" So I
settled with the fairly neutral and hard-to-attack yet descriptive name
Belus. The album theme never changed. It was the same all along - and I
came up with the idea some time after my release from prison.



How would you describe the music on Belus? Will loyal Burzum fans be
surprised by the music you're making now?

The music is mostly melodic, melancholic and monotonous. If you have
heard the first two and a half tracks on Hvis Lyset tar Oss and the
first three tracks on Filosofem I don't think you will be surprised by
the music on Belus. I "cherry pick" on Belus, so to speak, like I should
have done on all the previous albums, and make a more thorough and
consistent album this time.



Do you still consider what you do to be Black Metal?

Not really. I think the term Black Metal was hijacked as early as in
1992, and has since then been used by a number of bands, mainly from
Norway, for commercial purposes. Today the term has a different meaning
and does not work well to describe Burzum.



For a short while I flirted with the idea of using a new term, but ended
up ignoring the subject altogether. When forced to take a stand I say
today that it's metal music. Metal with roots in classical music.
Nothing more, nothing less.



If you run a record store and wish to place the new Burzum album in the
Black Metal category feel free to do so, though. If you wish to place it
in any other metal category instead that's okay too. I don't care.



You have made some very strong statements against the contemporary Black
Metal "scene". Is there anyone in the Black Metal world that you respect
or admire?

Now, I guess I should have stressed that my contempt for Black Metallers
is first and foremost directed at some of the Norwegian Black Metallers
I knew or had at least heard about before my incarceration. I really
don't know anything about the rest of the contemporary Black Metal
world, in Norway or abroad. I've just paid some attention to the Ratti
Norvegici.



I am sure there are many brilliant individuals in the contemporary Black
Metal world outside of Norway worthy of our respect and admiration, but
I don't know any of them. Not sure if I even know a single individual in
the contemporary Black Metal world, actually, nor is there any reason
for me to do so.



How do you feel about the way you are portrayed in the media? Do you
think you have ever been correctly represented?

Not much of what is written about me is true from an objective point of
view, and certainly not from my point of view. Some of the lies are not
clever at all, but others are, and it is hard for me to disclose them as
lies when those who know I am right don't have the moral fibre or
courage to step up and say so in public. Another problem is that only a
few are interested in the truth. Even when the evidence is there, they
refuse to look at it. Most human beings just want to live their lives in
ignorance. That's why the Judeo-Christian religions (including Islam)
are so successful in the first place, you know.



The biggest problem is not even the lies -- because they can be
disclosed as such -- but the incompetence of certain journalists. Like
in one interview I gave in late 2009, the journalist was too over-worked
and tired to notice that he made mistakes like leaving out the word
"not" when quoting me having said that "the plan was not to kill".
Instead he managed to write "the plan was to kill", and if I hadn't
noticed and made him correct this before the newspaper was printed, it
would have been rather catastrophic. Such mistakes happen all the time.
I know the journalists don't always do it on purpose, but it is still
very frustrating. Also, friendly characters, with the best intentions in
the world, make similar mistakes, in their attempts to "help" me. I am
accused of having said or done this or that, when I really haven't, and
in the end nobody knows what on Earth is true.



Once, I think in 1995 or 1996, I even read a newspaper article about a
guy and thought to myself that "this guy is a complete idiot", only to
notice a few seconds later that the article was about me. It was so far
from reality I had to read half a page to even realise it was about me
(and the headline didn't tell)!



Now, before I continue, I can add that I don't think there is some huge
conspiracy against me in particular. I just say that this is how the
media works. It works like that in relation to me and other
controversial figures, and it works like that in relation to just about
everything and everyone else as well. It is worthless as a source of
reliable information and should be shunned at all cost.



Do you feel that any of the negative things that are written about you
are justified?

If you have the wits you can justify just about anything, including
lies, so I don't worry too much about what seems fair and what doesn't.



Besides... I am an arrogant, intolerant, judgemental, ultraconservative,
(at times) cruel, brutal, insensitive and egocentric anti-conformist.
But is that really negative?



Do you enjoy being a controversial and notorious figure or is it a
source of irritation for you?

Because of my arrogance, intolerance et cetera I have always been a
controversial and even -- on different levels -- a notorious figure; in
kindergarten, in school, in the neighbourhood and everywhere else. I am
used to it. Whether I enjoy it or not, I cannot tell, because sometimes
I do, sometimes I don't. Generally speaking, and from nature's point of
view, being controversial and notorious is stupid and even dangerous,
but it can also open many doors - and we are all going to die from
something one day anyway. Who dares wins, right?



You recently issued a statement that caused a great deal of media hype
and accusations of racism and homophobia...did that response genuinely
surprise you? Or was there an element of deliberate mischief and
antagonism behind the statement?

It did genuinely surprise me, because it's not like I have been careful
about what I have said before. Why this reaction and why now?



I think what we really should discuss here is that most of you seem to
think it is okay to worship the (fictional) devil, to be evil (whatever
that means) for the sake of evil, to hate human beings because they are
human beings, and so forth, but the moment some guy shows up telling you
that he does not despise all human beings, only some of them, then it's
all of a sudden a major problem to you. Or even worse; a guy shows up
and has the nerve to say that he does not hate anyone, but prefers one
group to the other! Dear God! How dare he?!



Deliberate mischief and antagonism? Indeed, but like I have said
already; I was talking about and to the rats of the Norwegian Black
Metal scene. I'll be sure to put some clothes on the next time I open my
big mouth, knowing you are all watching me -- and running errands for
Big Brother.



Hey! I was incarcerated in 1993 and was released in 1984. Now, that
genuinely surprised me.



What do you want to achieve with Belus? Do you want your audience to
grow?

Frankly, I am quite satisfied with the audience I already have, bigger
is not always better, you know, but if it should grow in size after the
release of Belus that would be very nice indeed. I don't expect that
though, mainly because I don't make commercial music or discuss popular
subjects in my lyrics.



The main objective with Belus is to make something exceptional,
musically, of course, but also when it comes to overall atmosphere. It
is supposed to be primitive, dreamlike, unreal, fantastic and different.
A window into a reconstructed past, and also a source of inspiration to
those who are attracted to the barbarian Antiquity. Being "incurably
anti-conformist" I also challenge the accepted truths when it comes to
mythology, and go even further back in time, to ages preceding the age
of mythology - and of course I present a more complete picture of what I
have found in the hitherto (because I am translating it into English)
unpublished book Religion and Sorcery in Ancient Scandinavia.



Do you have any future plans, either personal or creative?

Before anything else I will complete the translation of Religion and
Sorcery in Ancient Scandinavia, and then publish it, complete Belus and
perhaps make a music video to promote it. Not sure if I will say much
more than that, with Big Brother watching us and all... You can always
keep yourself up-to-date on Burzum matters on www.burzum.org

Doesn't the guy strike you as a bit more cautious now that he's out of prison? I haven't read that many Burzum interviews so it's hard to compare, but it seems to me now that he's not being too explicit or he's trying not to anger people these days.

I won't contrast interviews now with before, because he has grown up. He has a family now, too, so it's understandable if he's tamed his rhetoric.

He's trying to move product, so he doesn't want to alienate too many consumers.

How come? you're the second one i heard saying he listened to Belus. Is there any secret organisation of closed Burzum fans who have the exclusivity on new Burzum stuffs?
