Burzum - Daudi Baldrs (aka Balder’s Dod)

Posted on Friday, September 17, 2010

Considering that Varg is still in prison, it comes as no surprise to me that this album is all synths - no guitars, no drums, and no vocals. What is surprising is that there is also a near total lack of “evilness” in this music. It’s certainly not happy, but it’s not exactly dark, either. This would make a good soundtrack for something, but I’m not sure what. In Norse legends, Balder’s death (which is apparently what the music is “about”) signaled the beginning of Ragnarok, so perhaps this album is sort of a calm before the storm of diabolical extremity that will come next. I doubt it, tough. Anyway, if you take this disc alone, and don’t compare it to the other Burzum releases, it’s very enjoyable, but if you’re expecting Black Metal, you’ll be disappointed.
