Burzum- demo II (1991)

This second Burzum demo marked the crystalization Black Metal as a genre.  This recording is low, muddy and the production quality is poor, all of which adds to the feeling. Many people don’t like the low recording, bitching and complaining… Which is cool.  Some people like the clean radio sound and sitting down to pee.

Either way, this demo represents the moment when black metal emerges from the sub genre of death metal/ metal as a distinct separate genre with tremolo guitar riffs and shrieked vocals.
