Nope.
 


One of my favorite Black Metal tracks.
The lyrics are in German and so damn complicated that even I don't understand them. Absolutely crazy.

Yes, absolutely essential for that time period. Hvis lyset tar oss is my favorite.

 

Nokturnal Mortum's cover of "My Journey To The Stars" is excellent as well.

Nice. Didn' know Pyrrhon was releasing an album

Funny to see Dimmu's Stormblast and this Neglfar album on the same page here as those are both some favorites. I even have the Swarm of Plagues on 1st edition vinyl. A love all of Neglfar but the general consensus is their last album was not as good as the ones before it. I still like the album though. The band also has connections with the black-thrash band "Bewitched".

I don't know if they are even together anymore.

The interesting stuff about the original Stormblast is that the keyboardist copied an intro so that is why the redu of Stormblast with Hellhammer on drums does not have the same songs. In most black metal talks everyone complains about how bad the recording is of the original Stormblast. The music is epic but the recording is so-so. The new remake may have better sound, but has lost a little of the Magic the first one had. I only listen to the original. The CD can be hard to find due to the legal trouble they had from the copyright lawsuit.

In my book, Filosofem is THE Burzum essential

My only naglfar album is pariah, and honestly I couldn't remember a track from it

Sounds like I need to brush up!

I do have the dimmu catalog, I actually prefer the post Enthrone Darkness era...I never thought dimmu did the raw stuff as well as the other big bands of the time but they are untouchable in the cheesy synth laden symphonic category. Death Cult in particular is a masterpiece of B-grade fun

Agreed!

But....burzum is way more historically essential than musically IMO

Couldn't have said it better. Never gave any of his other albums a second listen really.
