      • This would be my favorite album probably

        Also, there are far more iconic burzum synth tracks, like this one, it takes some time to get to the juicy part but once it does… you’ll know. This is dreamlike, very well produced as well

        Your best find there was probably Grimriks album. He has a 2 man proyect with Murgrind, a friend of his. They are called Arath and they released some kickass high quality productions, i’m more of a lo fi kinda guy but their work is simply way above average.

        Maybe you already know about these things, i’m just taking reference from what you played on the podcast. You linked Lord Lovidicus and he has some neat albums, especially “Autumnal Winds and Times of Yore”. Other things I could mention to you are Mistigo Varggoth Darkestra, Gothmog, Forgotten Land, and… well, you could give my own project a listen, though there is only a couple singles released, album is halfway done

        Let me know what you think! keep it up


      • Thanks heaps, well aware of Grimrik’s other projects, there is only so much time and I wanted to cover a wide range of stuff. There was also some Lord Lovidicus played in between the Kaptain Carbon interview. I will certainly listen through a bunch of the other stuff you’ve put here. The Burzum track I chose to play was simply because it was the first I stumbled across and I personally thought is fairly powerful (if a little minimal and simplistic). Thanks again for listening!
