To many this might come as a surprise, since the band is well-known and the music certainly isn’t crap, however, you had to live it to understand why I pick this vid.
I do not quite remember when I saw it, I think it was 1997 or early 1998. My older brother taped some „Metal“ show on Viva (probably Metalla) and this beauty aired. Back then Burzum was already one of my favourite bands, so imagine my face when I heard the first notes of Dunkelheit to cheap computer effects (used very loosely).
Just watch the video, it has nothing to do with the lyrical content of the song and had absolutely no involvement from Varg, who was incarcerated. Heck, Varg didn’t even have any involvement on how Filosofem was released and has stated in interviews (while in prison) that he had never heard the finished product.
So who was responsible for this bad acid trip?? David Palser! Never heard of him? He is also responsible for the Immortal Masters of Nebulah Frost VHS. Nuff said!
