Umskiptar is an old Icelandic for metamorphoses, and it partly reflects on the artist's move closer to the dark ambient works - Vikernes' attempt to blend rough metal and synth-based folkloric music sounds quite persuading, with prevailing melancholic, dream-like atmosphere and mesmerizing effect on listener; minimalism, clean vocals and simplicity of textures might be not what some fans have expected, yet it feels close-related to its lyrical concept, taken from Norse poem Völuspá, crowned by astounding front cover courtesy by Peter Nicolai Arbo
