BILSKIRNIR - ATAVISMUS DES GLAUBENSAtavismus des Glaubens is an album produced by legendary one-man band Bilskirnir. Bilskirnir refers to Thor's hall, an allusion to Wodenism and Indo-European paganism. The album starts off with a gnarly instrumental song titled Feur und Schwert which translates to "Fire and Sword" in English. The first song transitions well into the second Atavismus des Glauben. This might possibly be the most hateful, misanthropic, and ethnocentric song I have ever heard. The title translates to "Belief in Atavism" in English. Atavism of course refers to animalistic traits apparent in human embryos, and early scientific racists used Atavism to support their views. The song itself is as hateful as the title, every time I listen to the song, I want to unleash my Aryan genius. The screams are brutal and angry. The third song By Fire, Midgard Shall Be Cleansed is an obvious allusion to Norse mythology. Again, Bilskirnir expresses pure hatred through music. The guitar in this song is downright brutal. The next song is Restitution which is a really generic black metal song with solid vocals, guitar, and drums. This is the weakest song in the album, but is still fairly brvtal. The song leaps into the next song The Cosmic Source this song is so raw and so wickedly outstanding. It has a melancholy melody with the brvtal screams of Bilskirnir, a very hateful experience indeed. The next song Einsamkeit which translates to "Loneliness" in English has the same brvtal screams and raw feel to it. The song is not as misanthropic and the melody even gives a hint of hope in this chaotic album. This of course shows the depth of Bilskirnir's emotional character. The last song Abschied is so melancholy and brvtal it's ridiculous. Such a fantastic way to end a fantastic album. I won't spoil the end but just know it is sick!!I won't give this album a rating as that would contradict the ideology that Bilskirnir is trying to espouse. He is an out-and-out National Socialist and German Transcendentalist, and from this brilliant work you know that Bilskirnir rejects empiricism. His album is far to deep and misanthropic to be quantified.
