Fantastic cover, doesn't look like there's any English lyrics which is a bummer but makes sense considering the topic.

sound to similar to Loki and Baldr as well as Loki's plan that got Baldr killed. As this follows it appears to be about the beginning signifying the coming of Ragnarok through the... i guess "account" of Baldr. This is just my theory and would like to hear someone else's ideas.

Second track is quite reminiscent of Filosofem track 2, Jesus' Tod/Jesu Død. Hopefully that's another sign Varg's making this a Burzumy Burzum album.

Love the artwork, but the music itself is gonna sound like pieces of sh** being flung around while screaming incoherent nonsense. Gay.

Gay? incoherent nonsense?

maybe its just me, but is there not something quite homo and nonsensical in the very moniker bananaterracottapie itself??? :)

Hail (or is it heil?) Burzum!

I must be missing something in the cover. I love forests and all, but you can google and photoshop images like that pretty easily. What am I not seeing?

no, no...oystein was killed in his apt. complex

the cover art is typical vikernes...easily recognisable as Burzum, which, following such a forced hiatus, is smart marketing
