This is War
I Lie Wounded on Wintery Ground
With Hundred of Corpses around
Many Wounded Crawl Helplessly around
On the Blood Red Snowy Ground
War
Cries of the (ha, ha) Suffering Sound
Cries for Help to All Their Dear Moms
War
Many Hours of Music
Many Drops of Blood
Many Shiverings and Now I Am Dead
And Still We Must Never Give up
War

    General CommentI agree paperxwrists. I like rocking out to this song, it kicks ass.

    I think the song paints a scene of either world war 1 or 2 in Europe.

    "I Lie Wounded on Wintery Ground
    With Hundred of Corpses around
    Many Wounded Crawl Helplessly around
    On the Blood Red Snowy Ground "

    Probably lying in no mans land.

    General CommentSupposedly, the riffs for this song were more or less copied from Root's "Piseo pro Satana," or so I've heard.

    General CommentAnyone else notice how similar the keyboard in "Paschendale" by Iron Maiden is to the main riff of this song? I think it's entirely coincidence as it's fairly simple, but I still find it interesting since the two bands are so different.

    And Varg isn't mental, he's a misguided and stubborn genius. Not that I advocate his murder or church burnings at all. I think it's tragic that those are what he put his mind to.

    General CommentWar is a favorite Burzum composition for many people, and yet it is the most alien of all Burzum songs. Euronymous plays the solo.

    General Commentburzum is a really good band...or should i say Varg's is a good musician? i really love his lyrical concepts and his music is really good coming from a one man band. although i think i can hear him coughing in this song...oh well, can't help that.

    General Commentwwell if u read the views on burzum and varg himself you would find, that all u guys r saying is wrong varg is not a nazi and never was, and if u don't like his singing guess u shouldn't be liseting to burzum that wat burzum all about being some wat diferent and magic fuck faces
