Burzum – Fallen Review

Hey, it’s Burzum time again kiddies. That generally means more serious reflections on Varg the man, the myth, the ex-con and all the drama, baggage and bullshit that comes along with him. Here at Angry Metal Guy, we pride ourselves on a firm no baggage/bullshit policy so we won’t even begin to go down that road. Let’s leave it at the fact that Fallen is his second “post-incarceration” Burzum release and follows very closely on the heels of 2010’s Belus. While some stylistic similarities carry over from the previous album, Varg has chosen to expand the core Burzum sound here on Fallen and he’s taken it in a few surprising and interesting directions. It’s definitely not what I expected and he seems intent on pushing the boundaries of what is traditionally a very static and cult sound. For that alone he gets some props from me.
