Varg Vikernes, the man behind the one man black metal outfit Burzum, has posted a new message online to warn his fans of the amount of fake websites and social networking accounts that bear his name. An excerpt from the message reads as follows:

"Some emails from honest individuals and a few Google searches made me realize that there are many impersonators out there claiming to be me or claiming to run official Burzum websites of some sort. Let me therefore briefly tell you that I have no website of any kind other than www.burzum.org, administrated by the honourable BattleGrim. Not on MySpace or anywhere else.

"To avoid any confusion in the future I can add that if I ever get my own "space" on MySpace or anything like that I will announce it on www.burzum.org. If I don't you will know that I am not there. Not in any shape or form. Not even under a pseudonym or any other disguise.

"I can also add, as a reminder, that www.burzum.org came about because BattleGrim and I wanted to create a site with reliable information about Burzum, to counter all the lies of the music press and other media institutions - including the impersonator's paradise (the internet).

All this talk, and nothing about the music. Come on Varg. Stop tap dancing and singing in the spotlight. You know what the next album is gonna be. Him playing a tune on the worlds smallest violin.....

What the hell are you talking about?? He just posted a small artcicle/post on his OWN website. You know, like every other band/blogger ever.

Yes Cynic, my point in my comment was just that I wanted to hear more about the music. I've been to his site in the past. It's like one long eulogy/autobiography of himself. Most of his posts are about himself. I would like to hear more "Burzum" and less "Varg" (I know they are one in the same, but you get what side im talking about). His self-centeredness kinda rubs me the wrong way :/

i was saying its a spotlight thing. lots of musicians do small/big things as their album release approaches. thats all i was saying. i fully expect more and more varg news to come out the closer it gets to release day!! its a build-up hype thing, thats all. no biggie. i would do it if i was in the industry. why not, any press is exposure whether its good or bad.

I see what you mean Rapture, but since the only thing the media and other people ever comment on is his person, not his music. And since those comments are almost always in the form of attacks I think it makes sense that he needs to so often defend himself.

I can agree with that, most people would act the same way in that position I suppose. Hopefully in the coming weeks he will let us know more about Belus and other things can be ignored. Maybe, eventually, he will learn to do that more often.

burzum.org seems fake as well. as if some guy sadfully attempts to mimmick varg's writing style. why would v.v. say 'honourable' about a guy named 'battlegrim' (:')) who also hosts some crappy I tribute site.

Posts 14-16 you think hes complaining? There are other sites out there who are pretending to be Varg and possibly giving false information about his new album coming out. If it was your position wouldn't you want to warn fans who check your site that these other sites are not by the same guy releasing the album and are making up false info?

yeah i'm with the publicity stunts and attention. only because he says in the statement ''burzum'' so many many times that if you were to take shots for every time you read the word, you'd be pretty wasted. pretty much like post 16, that says it all.

^Wow what a completely rational statement (sarcasm for the retards). If you really worshipped Varg as you say you do you would realize he has attempted to embrace the rational world as best as he can.

cris, you need to learn how to use english words in sentences. you put (your), which means something that belongs to someone. you really meant (you're) which means you are. it must be difficult having no friends and feeling like you need to attack people here. i hope "your" balls finally dropped so that "you're" finally happy
