Aske by Burzum
Released: Mar 1993
Label: Byelobog Productions
Aske was not recorded while Varg Vikernes was incarcerated, but the original cover art for it was a photograph of a burned-out church, generally accepted to have been taken by the black metal linchpin/a-hole himself after setting it. Burning down churches with nobody in them may not be the worst thing in the world, but killing your friend for not being "metal" enough is up there, and Vikernes' politics are abhorrent. Still, there is no discussion of Norwegian black metal without his inclusion, and the D.I.Y. nature of this 1993 EP is one of the key elements of that scene.
