Limited edition which features the German tracklist on cover, but both lyrics translations (German and Norwegian/English depending on the song) in the 12-page booklet.
Comes in 2 different editions, one being with hard-cover.
Here is the German tracklisting as printed:
2. Jesus' Tod
3. Erblicket die Töchter des Firmaments
4. Gebrechlichkeit I
5. Rundgang um die transzendentale Säule der Singularität
6. Gebrechlichkeit II
However, contrary to popular belief, the more accurate tracklisting, as reflected below, is the "Norwegian Version", in which the translations of the song titles actually reflect the translations of the songs (for example, the Norwegian-titled tracks have Norwegian lyrics, the English-titled tracks have English lyrics). The song titles as they appear below are also exactly as they appear on the back of the booklet of the release. Common sense would suggest that the songs match the titles of the songs as they are printed with the lyrics, and that the language would match the language in which the lyrics are printed and sung. In fact, Varg even mentions in an interview how "the real title" of the first track is Burzum, and that Dunkelheit is merely the German translation. This is reflected in the following quote:
"The "Filosofem" ("Philosofem")* album: this album contains the first real Burzum track, titled "Dunkelheit" on the album (but the real title of the track is "Burzum". "Dunkelheit" is just the German translation of "Burzum"), that I originally wanted to include on the "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss" album (but the recording was very poor, so I didn't use it). I changed the name to Burzum from Uruk-Hai when I made this song (I think in August 1991). The album is a bit weird, and far from perfect, but it is okay. Unfortunately, this is the album that sounds the most like the new Burzum music."
* correct English should be "Philosopheme".
"Burzum" (meaning "darkness") is a word from the black speech of Mordor, a language created by J.R.R. Tolkien. This was the first song Varg ever fully composed.
The album cover and booklet contain extensive artwork by Theodor Kittelsen. The front cover is titled 'Op Under Fjeldet Toner en Lur' (Norwegian for 'Up in the Hills a Clarion Call Rings Out'), which features a woman playing a birch trumpet.
"Rundgang Um Die Transzendentale Säule Der Singularität" is one of the songs on the "Gummo" soundtrack (as an edit).
