umskiptar is kinda awesome.

i get why people would hate it though. it isn't really a black metal album.

if you're referring to the new album, it's no less boring than really any of his other albums, really. it just has a different mood than his other releases, and again, it's definitely not a black metal record. i'm honestly not sure what it is, actually.

if there's anything i know about metalheads, it's that they shit themselves when an established artist doesn't re-release the same type of album that they love. Or hell, even if they're un-established, many people will cry "OMG BETRAYAL" over it, so long as there's a different-sounding "superior" album to compare it to. so i can't say that i'm surprised that people dislike it. i understand the negative reviews it's gotten.

I'm fine with Burzum changing his sound, as long as that change results in something good. The reason I dislike the new album is not that it's "not black metal" or whatever, and I think most would agree with me. If Burzum decided to release an absolutely fantastic polka record I would admittedly be shocked, but if it was indeed fantastic, then would treat it as such. "Umskiptar" is just bad, at least in my opinion (and a lot of other people's apparently). Not because it isn't metal, but because it just sucks.

it seems to me that varg, at this point, is only really keeping burzum going because, as strange as it seems, it does pay his bills.

i mean umskiptar is essentially a long plug for his new book on mythology and stuff. hes older, he wants to do different things and i dont really have a problem with that. ill jam hvis lyset and still enjoy it and he can do whatever he needs to do to keep up his interests

not getting the hate then. nothing about Umskiptar jumps out at me as being even remotely bad. the closest thing would probably be the vocals, which still work exceptionally well within the context of the album.

I also lol'd at the people who were saying that this had has "forgettable riffs". Umskiptar is the first burzum album that's even had riffs since Det Som.

Hating Burzum does not make one a fag.

It says they have better taste in music than you.
And they are trolling.

"I just find it so repetitive and boring"

Yes! This person gets it.
Not only that but tinny, poorly produced, aimless...

Definitely an unnecessary remaster, but not painful to listen to like the new Stormblast.
