Digipak CD.

Album recorded while in prison for the murder of Euronymous and the conviction of church burning. He wasn't allowed any musical instruments in prison, so he made this ambient album entirely with the MIDI sound format. No metal on this album.

Recorded late 1994 / early 1995. This instrumental album is basically the soundtrack to the story of Balder.

Though there are lyrics in the booklet, the music itself doesn't have any vocals. The text (written in Old Norse) is to inform the reader about what the atmosphere surrounding the songs themselves should be, or rather, what the songs should feel like in general.

English translation of the titles:
1. The Death of Balder
2. Hermodr on a Journey to Hel
3. Balder's Burning
4. In Hel's Home
5. Ill Tidings
6. Towards Ragnarok

Some copies have a huge typo on the name Burzum with the letter M missing from the cover.
Promo came with different cover art than shown here and it was titled "Balders Dod".

Re-released on LP (black vinyl) in 2005 by Back on Black.
Second edition (blue vinyl limited to 1000 copies) released in 2010.

Re-released on CD in 2010 by Byelobog Productions. Comes with a slipcase featuring brand new exclusive artwork.
