Best Burzum Songs

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 Ten

1 Dunkelheit

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!

It's perfect...just perfect
Love ya varg - Ananya

2 Det 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!

The Greatest Song Ever Played..

3 Feeble Screams from Forests Unknown
4 Key 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

6 A 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

7 Lost Wisdom

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

No word for it.

One of the best Melodies ever + the lyrics are so Philosophical... A Masterpiece

One of the most heaviest black metal it - Ananya

8 Ea, Lord of the Depths
9 My Journey to the Stars

Just an awesome song has deep riffs that have emotion

10 The Reckoning of Man

The Newcomers

? Inn I Slottet Fra Droemmen
? Erblicket Die Töchter Des Firmaments

Why this awesome Filosofem track aren't on the list? Best!

I love this track. This and Dunkelheit are my favourite tracks from the Filosofem album. - metalfan1999

This and Dunkelheit are my favourite Burzum tracks from the Filosofem album. - metalfan1999

The Contenders

11 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

12 War

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

The best burzum I've ever heard
The best 2 minute song
An awesome solo by Euronymous
Great vocals by Varg
And it's really catchy by the way

13 Back to the Shadows
14 Glemselens Elv

Best Burzum song, magical, this song makes you feel like you are in that forest in album cover

Very super song - majstro

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

Belus's best - Ananya

17 Spell 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.

My favourite somg of Burzum. With this one I started to play and get into black metal and use heavy distortion. Now my favourite genre is black metal. I can't even understand the lyrics but who cares..

18 Tomhet

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.

19 Illa Tiðandi

Less is more in this song. You can feel the sadness through 3-4 notes.

20 Rundgang Um Die Transzendentale Saule Der Singularitat

Best ambient song of all time. My favorite Burzum song. 25 minutes of absolute beauty. - Caleb9000
