Burzum – Memories In The Mist (2024)

May 24, 2024

More Thulean Mysteries grade ambient piano work from Burzum. If not entirely original, it is at least hypnotic and spellbinding in the true ways that Burzum can invoke, which is more than I can say for a lot of the recent single releases. One thing to note however is the dreadfully low sound quality on the instrumentation here. His earlier synth / keyboard work sounded glorious – including the “post prison” synth albums – but from 2020’s double album onwards, the quality seems to have taken a nose dive. I don’t know if it is anything to do with the fact that none of this stuff is being mastered properly, but outside of the fact that the composition itself is interesting and enjoyable, the actual audio fidelity is terrible, like a squashed mp3 file.
