    How Many of You Got Into Preservationism Through Burzum?

    Either primarily, or around the same time that you became a preservationist, how many of you got into Preservationism, Heathenism or Nationalism by the influence of Varg Vikernes and his musical project Burzum?

    I ask because it seems like an awful lot of Skadi members count Mr Vikernes as an influence, or indeed enjoy the music of Burzum. I often think that the man was single-handedly responsible for an ENORMOUS surge of interest in Germanic preservation, and that his influence is often underestimated. Would Skadi be as active if he'd never existed? Interesting to consider.

    I quite like the music of Burzum, but have found it to be very repetitive and annoying.

    I much preferred Immortal, Primordial, Emperor and other music types like Enya and Clannad.

    My preservation and love of my heritage began from my early years when I got my first King Arthur book from my Welsh Uncle.

    It was a journey from there. Music has just been a convenient accomplice as I grew up.

    Haha! Thanks Cythraul. You have just made me search out my previous music tastes.
    I loved Immortal. Saw them play at the Astoria in London. Man that drummer could go at some speed.

    But anyway, here is my favourite song/video of theirs.

    BeornWulfWer, I was at that show too I think. Or was it when they played the Underworld!? Hmm. I've no doubt many Skadi members like some Black Metal music, but I think Vikernes is the main figurehead for Preservationists.

    Thrymheim - Burzum made very bleak, very atmospheric, very 'aryan' Black Metal music. Varg Vikernes himself (the only member of Burzum) was jailed for murder and became extremely well-known in the press for holding racist, traditionalist views. He is a Nordicist and during his time in jail has written many articles about Nationalism and Heathenism. Google him. I don't worship him by any means (actually I outright disagree with a lot of what he has said) but he is an interesting, influential character nonetheless.

    The music of Burzum not but the writings of Varg did influence me.

    You probably have that time you cheekily abducted my CDs! Would of been too minimalistic and too repetitive for your liking, though.

    I seem to recall that it was the LA2 that they played at and they were supporting Cradle of Filth, as I recall seeing Dani Filth at the side watching them.

    I have tried to Google the tour date, but found nothing. I think it was about the year 97/98.

    Speaking of the Underworld, I went to see Hypocrisy play there. I was right at the front because, as you know, the place ain't that big and Hypocrisy weren't as big either

    After they had finished, we went to chill and have a few drinks to the side and we were joined by a few blokes. Me being the numpty I am at times I didn't realise we were chatting to the bassist of Hypocrisy.

    I think the one I'm thinking of was Immortal, supported by (ironically) Hypocrisy at the LA2 on 10th April 2002.

    I like Burzum and really enjoy Varg's writings, but I would say my existence as a metal head, a preservationist, and a Tolkien fan prior to Burzum prepared me to like Vikernes' works instead of the other way around.
