:: The lyrics on "Umskiptar" are all taken from a Norse poem, ::
:: Völuspá. For an English translation of the lyrics see the ::
:: book "Sorcery And Religion In Ancient Scandinavia". ::
:: ::
:: "The "Umskiptar" album is also a return-to-the-roots album ::
:: for me, with a strong focus on atmosphere and wholeness ::
:: rather than anything else. The vocals on this one however ::
:: are more important than on any other album, with a total of ::
:: 66 stanzas, some of them even repeated a few times, making ::
:: up the lyrics of the album. The vocals are very important ::
:: for the special atmosphere and are more important than on ::
:: any other Burzum album, and more varied too - and as honest ::
:: as it gets". ::
:: ::
:: The concept of the album is "Umskiptar" (English = ::
:: "Metamorphoses"), a deeply rooted European (i.e. Pagan) ::
:: Stoic concept of changes. This concept was chosen in a ::
:: world heading for a new Ice Age, and can therefore also be ::
:: seen as critique of all the popular political movements of ::
:: our age of lies". (V.V.) ::
