    Saying this about DsO in contrast to black metal in general is just silly.

    I find it's an impactful album if you only play it occasionally. It seems if I play it more often, it's like it doesn't stand up to close scrutiny. The riffs seem to follow a standard pattern throughout the album (ascent/descent/ascent/descent). I'm really interested to see what they can pull off with their new album this year.

    Dark Funeral is the worst live band...ever! Am I the only one hating this new stuff. It sounds like anything off a Dimmu Borgir album.

    I have been falling asleep to Filosofem everyday for the last two weeks. Burzum has a way of putting me into a trance and for someone who has a hard time getting to sleep it is very helpful.

    Hahah. Actually, I could have included the Burzum debut album in that post, too, since the robed silhouette in fog is also seen in both of those above.

    Yeah, the Burzum RPG ripoff has been well documented for years, but I'd never heard of the Necromantia one until yesterday. Though the fact that Varg basically culled two album covers from the same RPG manual cover has to give him the slight edge.

    Maybe Varg learned that he liked dropping the soap in prison?

    I meant "progress" objectively. I don't think they have improved, just changed to the point that they shouldn't be compared to other modern Black Metal bands.

    Yes, actually, before I knew of the RPG book having been the source, I thought the self-titled Burzum album and Det Som Engang Var presented an interesting concept that was simply abandoned: start with a particularly striking image for one album cover, then pull back to reveal a larger picture containing the original -- and, theoretically, update the scope of this from album to album, pulling back to reveal a greater realm of ideas containing everything that came before.

    Of course this wasn't the case and Hvis Lyset Tar Oss is just its own thing (and my favorite Burzum cover artwork), but it seemed like an interesting idea. I'd like to know if there actually is anything like that out there.

    I don't think that artwork is going to end up being the final cover image for Den Hvite Guden, but I wouldn't really care if it did. I mean, that's such a typical reaction -- do you get all weird and "ew penises gay" when you see art like Michelangelo's David sculpture? I'm going to puke if I see one more fucking idiot make a joke about "lol Varg learned something in prison, I bet nobody has said this yet..."
