Burzum is composed of a member, Varg Vikernes. Vikernes ensuring at the same time the song, the guitars, the low one, the keyboards and the battery. Burzum is before a whole group of studio which never occurred into live. Because of the personality openly racist, Eugéniste and occulto-aryanist of Vikernes, Burzum is often attached wrongly to NSBM, although the words and the music of the group do not refer any to the Nazism or the policy in general. The topics approached are of epic or mythological inspiration, borrowing from the universe of Tolkien then to Scandinavian mythology.
Vikernes purged a sorrow of 21 years imprisonment recently for the murder of Euronymous, guitarist of the group Mayhem, by 4 or 5 stabs. Its albums of Black metal are known for their violent sedative atmospheres, their frequent hypnotic repetitions of simple but often major structure, and their rate/rhythm slower and frantic that the majority of the other groups of this style.
