0.0 zaruyache | November 24th 11

Instead of continuing to destroy his legacy with sub-par releases, Vargy settles by covering
his own classics. This doesn't so much destroy his classics as it does give us a feel of
what any other modern BM band would've sounded like had they chosen to cover the tracks
themselves. In that sense this hardly sounds like Burzum at all; gone are the trademark
buzzing guitars and obnoxiously raw screams, replaced now by perfect production values and
middle-aged growls or whispered "folky" singing. What made this band interesting to most
people will probably not be found here.
"From the Depths of Darkness" is not overly raw nor nearly as hypnotizing as some claimed
"Hvis lyset tar oss" to be; the change in production values takes away most of the rawness
and personality that garnered this band such acclaim to begin with. What we're left with
are quite simply some modern takes on older materials, neither good nor bad. Old fans will
dismiss this release as quickly as they see it, and new fans will just as quickly pass on
the now uninteresting riffs, tame vocals and perfect production in favor of something more
harsh by comparison.

This is the modern touch that many old time fans would never want to hear.
