BURZUM – SOL AUSTAN, MANI VESTAN

Well just in case you were pining away for it, here’s the latest annual release from black metal’s poster child, now predictably seeming to come out towards the end of Spring each year. What is rather odd though is his use of a different logo style with each subsequent release, kind of making my “Aske” [&hellip

Burzum – Umskiptar

Well another year, another Burzum album. Which is somewhat odd, coming from the guy who swore up and down that the more obscure something is, the more it defaults to being “better” than most things based on that simple fact alone and that less is more for many years. Maybe there’s a contract inked somewhere [&hellip

“You ever heard those Norwegian death metal bands? They are scaaaaaary!” And so goes many a conversation in a bar by jackasses feigning that they have some sort clue… The brainchild of the infamous Kristian “Varg” Vikernes (I’m assuming the “Count Grishnackh” moniker was either ‘killed off” or has taken a backseat since his prison stint), [&hellip

Funereus – Profane Rite of Morbid Glorification

Originally from Mexico, Southern California’s Funereus are keeping the Black Metal Flame burning bright in the United States.  Their debut full length album, ‘Profane Rite of Morbid Glorification’ is a venom-drenched and disease-ridden ritual of pure hatred and black madness, cutting through the faith of all naysayers who dare to listen. I recently got a [&hellip

Burzum – Belus

When I first reviewed ‘Belus’, I had only heard the few tracks that were leaked and available on Youtube. As simple and commonplace as it may be to simply download a torrent of this highly anticipated album would have been, it would also seem to be rather unceremonious. ‘Belus’ could be the most anticipated black [&hellip

Burzum – Belus

I can think of no better an album to be the first reviewed in the web edition of Forbidden Magazine! Out March 8th from Byelebog Productions, this long anticipated album has waited 11 years to finally see the light. I have heard maybe half the tracks on ‘Belus’ and must say that this album will [&hellip
