5 - Burzum - Burzum (March 1992)
This album cover is a fairly straightforward one. It has the standard Burzum gothic font, this time white on a black background, and does not have an album title because it is an eponymous release. The scene is in a swamp/marsh area, and there is a central hooded figure, although it is shrouded in mist. There is a pool of water at the figure’s feet, surrounded by what appear to be reed-like plants. There are a few decrepit leafless trees, but otherwise the landscape is mostly bare. The figure is ghostly and reminiscent of Death, although this is a tenuous identification at best. Interestingly, this cover appears to depict the same scene as the cover of Det Some Engang Var, just with a shift of perspective (with the gate at the viewer’s back, instead of facing the gate).
