Bilskirnir - Atavismus des Glaubens (2003)

German raw Pagan black metal. Driving, mid-paced tempos, epically melancholic riffs, and lupine screams. Possibly sketchy: they mention purification a lot, and have covered Absurd and Graveland.

EDIT: My suspicions were confirmed by an alert commenter, who described this guy as a "total nazi bastard scumbag." There you have it. I haven't found anything fucked up about this particular album (or the other few of Bilskirnir's that I have heard) but I have no doubt that, at the very least, the man behind the project is as described. So, listen at your own risk, and be good to one another.

Track listing:
1. Feuer und Schwert (Einklang)
2. Atavismus des Glaubens
3. By Fire Midgard Shall Be Cleansed
4. Restitution
5. The Cosmic Source
6. Einsamkeit
7. Abschied

In the cosmic deeps I see the shape of a human
