From Interview with Varg Vikernes

Interview conducted by Chris Mitchell (Desolate Gale)

May 10, 2005

Can people expect you to release any more music after you are released?

Probably. The future albums, if I ever record anything, will as far as I can tell sound much like the old albums, whether I like it or not, because I am incapable of making music that doesn't sound rather "burzumic". I fear it might not be too original or different from old Burzum, as I wanted it to be, but I guess there are people who think that is just fine too. And on the other hand it is not very surprising that I still make music that sounds much like my own music...


Btw, read this too (about De Mysteriis...):

I once said that this album reeked big time, because the vocals ruined everything, but the truth is that I had only properly heard the vocals on Freezing Moon when I said that, and I think Freezing Moon reeks big time, but the vocals on the other tracks is perfect. The reason I think Freezing Moon reeks is simply that I was used to Dead's vocals and his way of singing, and I never wanted that to change. Attila, the session vocalist for this album, was more concerned about his "artistic integrity", and didn't want to sound just like Dead, so (unfortunately) he wanted to do his own thing.

So I think this album is great. It is highly original, not least because of Hellhammer's inventive drumming, and I would say that all that was positive about Euronymous is immortalized by this album. Hellhammer's drumming makes the album special, but so does the guitar riffs, that Euronymous was mostly responsible for (although Hellhammer, Necrobutcher and even I have made some riffs too).

I have never even read the lyrics on this album, or seen the album cover, but I still dare say this is one of the few black metal releases I think highly off and would actually listen to, if I had the chance. Why on Earth do people even bother listening to other black metal albums when they can listen to albums like this one? A good album to me is an album you never grow tired of, and I think this album is such an album.
