Burzum – The Reincarnation of Ódinn (2023)

The seemingly compilation-like nature of Varg’s “final” release as Burzum, Thulean Mysteries, coupled with the spaced out, almost relaxed tone of most of his ambient music, makes it very difficult to ascertain whether I’ve heard this before or not. It feels more familiar than it does new, and whilst that is rather welcoming in some ways, its also a bit underwhelming that this random “return” (whatever it means long term) is not something a bit bigger; a bit more impressive.

I suppose one can only keep their head down, live off grid with solar panels and a small farmstead and a small “thermic” vehicle (lol), and hope that more new Burzum material will soon be on the horizon.
