A new Burzum album, titled "Umskiptar" (Metamorphoses), consists of 65 minutes of skaldic metal, recorded in Grieghallen Studio in Bergen in September 2011.

"The "Umskiptar" album is also a return-to-the-roots album for me, with a strong focus on atmosphere and wholeness rather than anything else. The vocals on this one however are more important than on any other album, with a total of 66 stanzas, some of them even repeated a few times, making up the lyrics of the album. The vocals are very important for the special atmosphere and are more important than on any other Burzum album, and more varied too and as honest as it gets". - Varg Vikernes
