From the veins of a nearly dead boy - A tribute to Burzum
One can hardly overestimate the influence the notorious act Burzum had on Norwegian black metal and dark ambient music. Stein Akslen have several times spoken up about the importance of acknowledging the genius minimalistic compositions of Burzum, and how this has been a huge inspiration for Minneriket.
What started as a very private project just doing covers of some of his favourite Burzum songs turned into a whole album. Never really inteded for release, after having spoken about it and shared a few songs with a close circle, the rumours spread and by popular demand the album was released January 30th 2017. It is now featured on the official Burzum website.
Stein Akslen once again played all instruments and recorded and mixed the album himself. All music and lyrics is written by Varg Vikernes of Burzum. The artwork is "The Nightmare" by Henry Fuseli.
