Bilskirnir/Atavismus des Glubens/Nykta/2003 CD Review

Bilskirnir are a one man project from Germany that plays a raw and primal form of pagan/viking/black metal and this is a review of their 2003 album "Atavisms des Glaubens" which was released by Nykta.

Drums are mostly slow to midpaced beats with some ocassional fast playing or blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with some slow riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars are slow to midpaced and primal viking/black metal riffs that call up the Northern gods with some ocassional fast riffing, while the lead guitars when they are utilized which is rare are very primal sounding viking metal leads.

Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics are written in a mixture of German and English and cover Norse and Asataru themes, as for the production it sounds very dark and raw.

In my opinion Bilskirnir are a very good primal viking/black metal band, and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Atavismus des Glaubens" "By Fire, Midgard Shall Be Clenased" and "The Cosmic Source". RECEMMONDED BUY.
