BURZUM Announces Release Date

Varg Vikirnes 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:

1. Bloostokkinn
2. Joln
3. Alfadanz
4. Hit Helga Tre
5. AEra
6. Heior
7. Valgaldr
8. Galgvior
9. Surtr Sunnan
10. Gullaldr
11. Niohoggr
