Best Burzum Songs

Nord666
Burzum is an influential musical project by Varg Vikernes (originally under the pseudonym Count Grishnackh). It began during 1991 in Bergen, Norway and quickly became prominent within the early Norwegian Black Metal scene. With albums like 'Hvis Lyset Tar Oss', 'Filosofem' and 'Det Som Engang Var', Varg Vikernes is considered as one of the leading forces to define the Black Metal genre and to promote it.

However, in 1994 Vikernes was convicted and imprisoned for the murder of guitarist Øystein 'Euronymous' Aarseth and the arson of several churches.

Anyway, this is a list to vote for the best songs by Varg Vikernes under the project Burzum.

The Top TenXW

1Dunkelheit

Just awesome, the darkness, I play this every time I'm a bit depressed

One of the most notorious black metal song all time. The lyrics and instruments just go absolutely well with each other.

I like all BURZUM songs (yeah including the new album), but this song is the best. The lyrics are simple, but awesome!

The most darkness sound I've ever heard.

2Det Som En Gang Var

This song written by an 18 or 19 year old teen is of such a high level quality no other band reached still today! Vikernes is the black metal mozart!

It's like something out of the Donkey Kong Country factory levels gone horribly wrong. A perfect black metal song if there ever was one. - joshapkin

There is no word in the universe to describe this masterpiece of darkness and freedom. A hymn to the Black Metal!

Amazing combination of ambience and metal turn this song into an absolute masterpiece.

3Key to the Gate

Unfathomably passionate, a true display of pure rage and despair, an inspiration and a journey to the European ear. - KeyToTheWatchtower

Awesome songs and that "build up" towards the solo makes the solo even better than it already is. Trully a masterpiece

4Feeble Screams from Forests Unknown
5A Lost Forgotten Sad Spirit

Atmospheric sound of desperation appeals to me.

This song feels like it has a lot of emotion in it.

Immeasurably so fervent and so emotional - Ananya

6Jesus' Tod

The Best Black Metal Song in history of music! Still don't understand why it's not number 1?

This is my favorite song... Awesome!

This is very fast and beautiful song.

7Lost Wisdom

The heaviest black metal song I've ever heard.. I love that guitar and bass riff around 2 minutes and 20 seconds - PureMayhem

One of the most heaviest black metal songs...love it - Ananya

The heavy bassline in this song is just so immensely powerful. It was the bassline in this song that lead me to pick up the bass and learn it.

This was also the first black metal song I ever heard and is what pulled me into black metal.

8The Reckoning of Man
9My Journey to the Stars

Just an awesome song has deep riffs that have emotion

10Glemselens Elv

My favourite track from the Belus album! It is not as raw and extreme as his older black metal tracks, but it has this magical feeling. - metalfan1999

Best track from the Belus album! It is less extreme than the older tracks, but still has this magical feeling. - metalfan1999

The Newcomers

?Hermodr a Helferd
?En Ring Til Aa Herske

My first Burzum song, still my favourite! The song is so evil it takes you somewhere else! Definitely my favorite from Burzum but very underrated in my opinion. Definitely better than Lost Wisdom (which is still awesome).

Probably the darkest, most beautiful, most atmospheric and powerful story ever told in song or otherwise.

So atmospheric and so powerful - Ananya

The Contenders

11Ea, Lord of the Depths
12War

War is exactly what Burzum is. Burzum is a war upon society, upon its listeners, upon everyone and everything. War is the perfect song to symbolize this relationship.

This is the catchiest burzum song - bigmike137

This should be wy higher; first song I ever heard of Burzum, and was hooked

13Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

Second best song on the album of the same title.

14Spell of Destruction

Great track, one of those songs I just love to hop onto the drums and play every now and then. Honestly my favourite track from this record.

15Back to the Shadows
16Tomhet

I don't even knew what does it mean Tomhet. But it means emptiness. And it is right name for it. It takes gravity from you.

14 minutes of journey to the stars..So beautiful Ambience..I can listen to it all day

Alright, so I'll admit, HLTO has only clicked with me a few times in my life. However, the atmosphere in Tomhet never fails, and I always feel the nothingness overwhelm me when I play this track.

17Sverddans
18Rundgang Um Die Transzendentale Saule Der Singularitat
19Black Spell of Destruction
