The fourth studio album by Varg Vikernes' one man band, Burzum. Released in 1996. This is the last studio album of Burzum's before Vikernes was sentenced to 21 years in jail for the murder of Øystein Aarseth (Euronymous of Mayhem), as well as the arson of a number of churches in Norway.
This album was recorded using some "interesting" equipment. (It is said that Vikernes asked a technician for the worst microphone available when recording this album, and he was given a headset). He also didn't use a guitar amplifier. He simply plugged his guitar into his brother's stereo amplifier and used an old fuzz pedal. However, this all adds to the dark atmosphere that Vikernes was trying to capture.
