Burzum Christmas album. Varg Vikerness brings a whole new dynamic to Jingle All The Way, alternating between passionate screeches of National Socialist fury and heartfelt guitar melody straight out of Santa's workshop.

I meant for black metal in general. His newer vocals are a lot more along the lines of more traditional black metal vocals. They're just not really executed as well as many bands have done in the past, though.

I think Varg actually being a competent musician now will make this material sound great, it might not (definitely won't) be the same, but it's all very good material, so I'm really struggling to see exactly how this can automatically be declared as "bad" when it's not even recorded yet...

Dumb, dumb, dumb. Isn't this against every philosophy he utilized when creating these albums in the first place? Wasn't his intention to use as dark and dreary and low-grade of production gear as possible to aid in the music's darkness and "blackness"?

Sounds like someone is preparing to...yikes, I hate using this word...ahem..."sell out". Just never thought it would be fucking BURZUM of all people.

i've been listening to zen arcade by husker du lately, and while the production isn't bad... i wonder what it would be like without the 80's punk scratchiness.

If George Lucas has taught us anything, it's that you never, ever, ever fuck with the originals. Ever. Or at the very least if you do, make sure the originals are still available for purchase along-side the newly remastered/recorded/revamped ones. I'd knock a bitch out to have the original Star Wars trilogy on Blu-Ray, without all of his retarded "additions".
