If you cant afford the original vinyl version here is the one you need. All the coldness you love this record for shines. The sound of this tape is the best i have ever heard this album sound. Its getting really expensive though.

Great sounding press! Kinda ironic to say about this album, though. Buy it!

Definitely sounds different than the cd. Sounds more thick which I like. Nice pressing.

I asked Tiziana (Misanthropy Records label owner) about how many copies of Filosofem on vinyl that were made, and which one came first (blue or black) Here is her answer:

“To be honest, I can't remember :) But I think it was the blue one, because we had the policy of releasing the more unusual stuff first. The other option might be that we released them both at the same time. But I think it was the blue one first.

I am sorry, I also can't remember how many we made of each variation! I would guess either 500 or 1000. I can't even remember where we printed those.... I must be getting old :) I will try and find out”

Despite the fact most people venerates "Det som engang var" as Burzum´s best, it is in reality with "Filosofem" when he achieved his most powerful work, or at least his most memorable in terms of elaboration. Filosofem is very centered and balanced, equals force with harmony and rivals the creativity that gave Burzum its legendary status. Its a middle point between "Det som engan var" era with the posterior refinement of his more experimental works such as "Dauði Baldrs" and "Hliðskjálf".

The context of the making of this album also takes the work into a completely different dimension and enriched it with the aura of anger and resentment so present and certain while been created, drama fills this album with a fire so strong that one cannot but accept its own purity. This aspect is especially noticeable in the overly epic track "Jesus Tod", a distillation from the epicness and virulence of "Det som engang var" in just one track, potent riff, obsessive rhythm, simple, yet so utterly powerful and memorable. All this explosiveness is balanced by the mid paced, melancholic ladden opener "Dunkelheit" that also takes partial inspiration from "Det son engang var" in form.

After this opens the next album's chapter, one that as i recall in 1996 was certainly not understood at all by a majority of fervent Black metal maniacs. It was too strange and dissimilar from anything not only Burzum ever did before, but anything anyone elses ever did, with perhaps the exception of excentric Beherit in the Black metal camp and Mortiis outside of it.
Nevertheless, this album was dismissed and to certain degree still is by the lovers of "kvlt" black metal, they never understood "Filosofem" as a rapture and a progression, they didnt get the elegance of adding synths, playing with atmosphere or simply keep the blast beat out of the equation, it was too much for their fossilized minds. So after the initial two songs it was uncharted territory.

The meditative and often profound synth lines in the second part of the album is too much for a simpleton, this simply trascends any definition, black metal, or else, its a music that is more contemplative than exorcising, a dark and subtle beauty certainly for an elite. The interplay of a layer synths with the riff creates a cascade type sound, a deep trance like atmosphere that is ever absorbent.

In here we also observe a clear constrast, the one between the pure strength and violence from the beginning of the album and the melancholic character of the more atmospheric rest of the album, repetitive yet mesmerizing, simple to the point anything else added would have been superflous. Deep and intriguing.
This is truly one of the most incendiary albums ever made in the history of music and without a doubt Burzum´s masterpiece.

Love it or hate it, this is the most legendary and controversial album of extreme music ever. 20 years after its release, i still listen to it on a regular basis (never bored by it, how could one get bored with this, really?). These frozen archaic melodies are truly a mirror of psyche, listening to it is like listening to your innermost Self, a centripetal vortexing towards the Center.
