Burzum // Budstikken

The blood and fire Burzum discourse has always intrigued me more than the music itself, but one leaked track off their upcoming record, Fallen, might signal a new appreciation. On “Budstikken,” (in English, "The Message") guitars assail without losing melodic ring, and Varg Vikernes’ damning rasp is broken up by warm, delicately sinister spoken incantations shot through with rapid fire strums. Dare I say the jam has a touch of glam that invokes a boot-chain-shaking stomp? Official release is March 7th, but until then there’s always YouTube…
