Musically "Fallen" is like a cross between "Belus" and something new, inspired more by the début album and "Det Som Engang Var" than by "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss" or "Filosofem". The sound is more dynamic – we mastered the album as if it was classical music – and I was more experimental than I was on "Belus" in all respects. Lyricwise it is similar to the début album, in the way that it is more personal and focuses on existential issues, but the mythological untertone known from "Belus" is still there. I have also included some ambient tracks – a short introduction and a longer conclusion.

"Fallen" was recorded and mixed during two weeks in Grieghallen studios, using a Spectar bass with alembic electronics on a VOX AC50 amp from 1965, a Ludwig drum kit (with a 26 inch kick) from 1975, a Neumann M149 microphone and stereo Schoeps CMTS 501 U microhpones for vocals, an OBH Nordica Harmony 6487, a custom Stig instrument and a Peavey 23 guitar on a Peavey 6505 (120 Watt) amp.

The picture on the front cover of "Fallen" is a part of a painting, "Élégie" (Eng. "Elegy"), by William Adolphe Bouguereau.

PS. Yes, both "Fallen" and "Valen" translates into English as "Fallen".

"Fallen" will be released worldwide on Byelobog Productions on the 7th March 2011.



  1. To everyone reading: Don't download the mediafire link that Mr. anonymous decided to post. It is not the burzum album and it just has a bunch of bullshit tracks along with a picture that says, "you just got trolled".

  2. Just noticed this link. Better late than never. No free downloads on this blog. Except if there is a reason or the band/label wants to do so.
