The new album from Varg Vikernes' Burzum, titled "Umskiptar," will see North American release on May 22nd. Says the controversial musician: “The vocals are more important than on any previous album with a total of 66 stanzas making up the album’s lyrics.”
"Umskiptar expands Burzum's ongoing influence of Nordic folk, but for this album adds more traditional heavy metal, signature Burzum composition, and a keener emphasis on vocal delivery – once again presented in Vikernes’ native tongue. Umskiptar (or Metamorphoses) follows the historical story that details the creation of the world and its end as dictated to Odin, a recurring character in Bruzum’s lyrics. Umskiptar follows 2011’s Fallen."
The "Umskiptar" track listing is as follows:
4. Hit Helga Tre
9. Surtr Sunnan
