Polarizing opinions, obviously. Stemmed from that 'deception' thread. Not about the pre prison stuffs. Not about the folk/whatever post Fallen. Not about his youtube channel, opinions, politics, whatever. How have these two albums aged for you since? Opinions?

Belus took me quite a few listens originally. I ultimately have grown to love it as well as Fallen. I think Fallen is the more solid album overall, but Belus has more of my favorite tracks. (Glemselens elv & the last 2). I honestly think Belus would have been better recieved as an ep of those 3 tracks alone. I dont really care if the drums are looped. But my only major gripe with them both is I wish the guitars had more of a Filosofem fuzz.

Great albums that are surprisingly suitable continuation to the classic 4 full-lengths. Though obviously not quite as good as they are.

Both would be better if cut down to ~40 mins though.

^Agreed on the cut down to 40min for both.

I always listen to Belus during the Spring and consider it "the fifth album" in Burzum discography. Great album from the clanging bottles to the end.

Never got into Fallen, but think it is time to revisit it.

Belus and Fallen are both great albums, total quality black metal in the Burzum vein. I always semi-ignore people who are itching to tell anyone that'll listen about how post-incarceration Burzum "sucks". I'd rather listen to Belus and Fallen over 90% of the shit that gets hoisted up on the black metal hype flagpole.

Fallen is no more than OK, but Belus is great.

Oh and Glemselens Elv is one of Burzum's top-5 tracks of all time, pure magic from beginning to end.

I like them. Umskiptar is good too although some of the songs drag on a bit too long.
Haven't paid attention to the albums after those.

Both are great albums, totally unique compared to majority of other black metal - continuing the legacy of his first 4 albums (although on a little smaller scale).
But between these two, I like Fallen more - it's wilder.

I really like the fact that in the end, after 15 years of metal silence and thousands of copycats, Vikernes is still the only one able to properly make Burzum riffs. These are very good albums, Glemelens Elv is indeed a fabulous song.

Belus is great - I remember not getting into fallen. Its good and all it just never clicked. Fallen was however the first BM album with humming I ever heard. Hum away Vikernes. Hmmmmm hmmmm Jeg faller!

3:10 on Morgenroede always takes my mind down the rabbit hole. Super hypnotic Burzum at its finest.

Same here! Very good & atmospheric album.

Fallen on the other hand is overall a bit too soft, especially the vocals.

With the exception of TOBC from Poland ("Heart Of Darkness" album) this is true.

I like both with "Belus" being the better of the two. It was near impossible for anything he did after getting out of the can to compare to early Burzum, but both are pretty damn fine black metal albums. "Umskiptar" and the synth/folk stuff is good, too.
