Aske (Norwegian for "ashes") is an EP by Norwegian black metal solo project Burzum. Though recorded in April and August 1992, after Det som engang var, it was released before that album in March 1993, through Deathlike Silence Productions.

Background[edit]

The cover is a photograph of the Fantoft Stave Church after its arson on 6 June 1992. Varg Vikernes was strongly suspected of burning the church, and the photograph is widely believed to have been taken by Vikernes himself.[1][2]

Bass guitar on the EP is performed by Samoth of the band Emperor.[1]

Release[edit]

The first 1000 copies of Aske were packaged with a lighter bearing the same image.[3]

Aske was later re-released as Burzum / Aske alongside the songs from Burzum's debut album.
