My question is what did you do? What kind of threat? Like you do that again i'll fire you,or, im going to do some physical damage to you? If physical then you can go to cops. I can't think of the name right now, but there are places that enforce a certain conduct of employers, you can see if he crossed that line. Non- of these options are through your company. Like Cjkenkel said, don't erase the message till all is resolved to your satisfaction.
Well, you can take it to his supervisor, but be prepared to start looking for another job. Most companies don't like whistle blowers of any sort, and they can make your life miserable. You can also try to transfer out from under him, in a lateral move. You have a recording... There might be legal recourse, I don't know.
If he threatened you, then call the police, or go down to the police station and file a report. Let the officer listen to your voicemail. Do NOT delete it. Cussing, really not much you can do about that. But threats definitely talk to the cops.
Did you do something to make him do that? If so, and if it wasn't a serious violent threat (you're not afraid of him hurting you) then you should take it on the metaphorical chin and drive on. Get better. If you feel that he was seriously physically threatening you and you're afraid he's going to harm you, then take it to his superiors.
If possible it would be best to try to address the issue with him yourself before you go to the cops or up the chain of command. Just ask him why he felt it necessary to do that and how you could avoid it in the future.

This is plain stupid! Nowadays, people are intelligently aware that leaving a threat message over a VM will get them some place not nice. Who would do that? Maybe, some video clips in the World's Dumbest Ever? Mi Vida. Mi Madrid.
