STUNNING 180 GRAM 1000 ONLY LIMITED EDITION GATEFOLD VINYL REISSUE OF BURZUMS FIFTH ALBUM.
Dauði Baldrs or Dauthi Baldrs (English: "Baldr's Death" or "The Death of Baldr") is an album by the Norwegian artist Burzum. Unlike Burzum's previous work, which was mostly black metal, this is a dark ambient album. Stylistically, the album is a mix of medieval music, ambient, neoclassical and minimalism.
It was recorded using a synthesizer and a normal tape recorder by Varg Vikernes while he was in prison, as he was not allowed to have any other instruments or recording equipment and was completed in a few months due to his limited access to synthesizers, which was also the case with the following album, Hliðskjálf.
The album is about the legacy of Baldr, the second son of Odin in Norse mythology. Most likely a concept album, as the whole album leads up to Ragnarok, the battle at the end of the world in Norse mythology.
