black metal, dark ambient, ambient black metal, ambient, norwegian

Burzum is the black metal solo project of Varg Vikernes (born Kristian Larsson Vikernes, AKA Greven Grishnackh/Count Grishnackh, currently legally named Louis Cachet). Burzum played a vital role, along with other Norwegian black metal bands such as Mayhem, Darkthrone, Emperor and Immortal, in the development of black metal as a musical genre and ideology. In particular, the ambient black metal and depressive black metal subgenres owe much to Burzum's sound.

Sôl austan, Mâni vestan is inspired by and made for the “ForeBears” movie by Marie Cachet and Varg Vikernes, where much of the Scaldic music from “Sôl austan, Mâni vestan” appears, only in unmastered form, as a soundtrack. Artwork presents the painting titled “Rape of Proserpina” by the Spanish painter Ulpiano Checa (1888). Sôl austan, Mâni vestan is old Norwegian for “east of the sun, west of the moon”. All the song titles are in old Norwegian. Read more on Last.fm.
