1993. Det Som Engang Var

Varg Vikernes recorded the first four Burzum albums between January 1992 and March 1993 at the Grieg Hall in Bergen. However, the releases were spread out, with many months between the recording and the release of each album. During this time, Vikernes became a part of the early Norwegian black metal scene and took part in burning down four churches, along with other members of the scene.

The album was initially named På svarte troner (Norwegian for “on black thrones”) but was renamed shortly before its release. The song “Det som en gang var” (with a slightly different spelling) would appear on the next album, Hvis lyset tar oss.

The album cover is visually inspired by an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (1st edition) module called The Temple of Elemental Evil. At the bottom of the artwork is a depiction of the “reaper” and the tree shown on Burzum’s first album.
