Burzum is the debut studio album by Norwegian black metal solo project Burzum. It was released in March 1992, through Euronymous's label Deathlike Silence Productions. Six of the songs were later re-recorded in 2010 and released on the album From the Depths of Darkness, as Varg Vikernes was dissatisfied with some of the original vocals and production.

The album was re-released as Burzum / Aske to include the songs from the Aske EP.[1] Only the Aske version of "A Lost Forgotten Sad Spirit" was included on this, but the original version was included on Burzum 1992–1999, released by Byelobog Productions.
