copy of debut CD from Burzum sells for $1500

Burzum CD sold for $1500 A CD version of the 1992 debut studio album from defunct black metal band Burzum recently sold for the princely sum of $1,500. The item was the only copy owned by Burzum mastermind Varg Vikernes and is apparently the only existing signed copy of the album. Given to Vikernes by Mayhem guitarist Euronymous (Vikernes murdered Euronymous in 1993), who released the album through his Deathlike Silence Productions, Vikernes awarded the CD to a man named Nathan after losing a bet stemming from a 2018 Jeep race. Discogs reports that Burzum was sold in January for $1,500, making it the 19th most expensive item sold via the site that month. [via Punknews]
