According to Plastic Head, the distributor of Burzum material, the notorious one man black metal band featuring Varg Vikernes will be releasing a new album on March 7th. You can view the front cover artwork below. The album will be entitled "Fallen" and has been likened to the previous Burzum record, "Det Som Engan Var."

Speaking on the album, Vikernes stated: "Musically Fallen is like a cross between Belus and something new, inspired more by the debut album and Det Som Engan Var than by Hvis Lyset Tar Oss or Filosofem. The sound is more dynamic – we mastered the album as if it was classical music – and I was more experimental than I was on Belus in all respects. Lyric wise it is similar to the debut album, in the way that it is more personal and focuses on existential issues, but the mythological undertone known from Belus is still there. I have also included some ambient tracks – a short introduction and a longer conclusion."

The tracklisting is as follows:

"Fra Verdenstreet"
"Jeg Faller"
"Valen"
"Vanvidd"
"Enhver Til Sitt"
"Budstikken"
"Til Hel og Tilbake Igjen"

Weird since I'm currently listening to "Belus" and was wondering if he was going to do a new album.

Huh, well nothing on the official site but it seems legit to me. If it's already been mastered then that's great, the release date should be good.

I remember reading an article about him in Guitar World, and he said he was working on a new album. That was a while ago so I'm not surprised the album is finished now. Look forward to hearing it.

It´s not called The Fallen, just Fallen, a word you can say in bort english and norwegian (or swedish) meaning the same thing.

Since the track titles are all in norwegian I think you should say the title in that language if you want to be correct.

Exellent album in my opinion , Fallen sounds very similar like Belus but only for the first time .Deep inside you will see old Burzum . Recommended for everyone .
