About this album

“Hvis lyset tar oss” (Norwegian for “if the light takes us”) is the third studio album by the Norwegian artist Burzum. It was recorded in September 1992, but not released until May 1994. This album is considered a classic in the black metal scene.
The album cover features a drawing by 19th century artist Theodor Kittelsen titled “Fattigmannen” (The Pauper).

Promotional copies sent around to fanzines had a slightly different tracklisting. The song “Et hvitt lys over skogen” (“a white light over the forest”) was replaced by “Tomhet” (“emptiness”) on the final release.
