Burzum – Thulêan Mysteries (2020)

I recently did a post where I said I was sad that Burzum hadn’t released anything for a while, and BOOM out of the murky waters comes this absolute gem of a double album! Dodgy Thule shit aside (make of that what you will) Burzum conjures the most unique and beautiful of dungeon synth atmospheres. He has his detractors, of course, but I am not in league with them. This could just be a tired ploy to sell copies of his new RPG, but fuck it, this is a glorious work and I will always welcome more Burzum, even if the black metal side of the project is long dead. If you enjoy beautiful synth work then I can not recommend this enough.
