Varg Vikernes has announced that Burzum is no more after giving away his only copy of the project’s 1992 self-titled debut album.
The disc went to a fella named Nathan B, who beat Varg in a challenge of getting from 0-100 kmh (0-60 mph) in their 4×4 vehicles.
Varg stated about Burzum’s end: I can add that to you, Burzum is a music project. Some like it, others don’t. OK. But to me, Burzum is my painful past in a reeking bog, that took me many years to get out from — and when I finally did, I just ended up in a new bog.
“Burzum was never my choice of life. I didn’t even want to become a musician. It was just something I did whilst waiting for something that never came — and that never could come.
“I have left all reeking bogs, and I have moved on…
“Bye bye Burzum. See the sun rise and see her banish all the darkness of this world.
