Burzum to release Umskiptar in May

The controversial Varg Vikernes is not staying quiet in 2012, with a new album announced today. Umskiptar (translating as Metamorphoses) will be released in May, as usual through Byelobog Productions. The album will be 65 minutes of “skaldic metal” and was recorded in Bergen at Grieghallen Studio. According to Vikernes, “the lyrics on Umskiptar are all taken from a Norse poem, Völuspá”.

Fallen, released early last year, was the man’s last full-length of new material and was a very strong record so interested ears await Umskiptar. [EDIT: Artwork below]
