Reviews for Isengard - Traditional Doom Cult

Well, as this is just a promo single for the next album, I won't write a whole review. The first song is an obvious homage to Black Sabbath. Even though the guitar tone is a bit loose, it's still a ...

Reviews for Isengard - Vårjevndøgn

Isengard is one of the most underrated little projects in the Norwegian scene. It's interesting, mostly because it's so goddamn different than anything else in that scene. The band's early output ...

Reviews for Darkthrone - Panzerfaust

Let's just say this, gang. This album missed being the best Darkthrone album (or even the best Black metal album) because of a very simple detail: THE VOCALS! Argh! As much as I love Ted and his ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Dem Feind Entgegen

We have yet another B-sides and forgotten songs EP from Widar! I'm gonna keep it short on this one, since I told most of the things that needed to be said about Bilskirnir and its EPs ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Totenheer

In this release, we have a single, plus a couple of B-sides and rehearsals. The main song doesn't have a particularly memorable riff or vocal performance, and as for the rest of the ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Feuerzauber

Well, lets start from the beginning. Acoustic intros are rarely interesting, but this one is really nice! "Sonnenwende" has a fantastic harmony, "Feuerzauber" has a fantastic melodic riffing style ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - ...bis Germanien erwacht

As with the previous demo, I won't write a full review for this demo either. Most of the songs here also have better versions later on, but if you like demos and raw albums in general, you might ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Ahnenerbe

The EP starts with a beast of a song, a fantastic mid-pace song with one of the most angry and raw vocal performances Widar ever did. The riffs are very harmonic and melancholic (very much inspired by ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - For Victory We Ride

Since there are better recordings of most of the songs here in Bilskirnir's later discography, I won't write a full review. Instead, I'll talk about some of the interesting songs exclusive to this ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - In Solitary Silence

The latest release by Widar's fantastic project is yet another EP. This EP is not a new release in any way, since it was recorded somewhere between 2008-2010 (as Widar puts it: "the missing link ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Der Wolkenwanderer

This EP was a promo for the 2013 full-length, and contains some rehearsals from the Wotan Redivivus sessions. The first two tracks were later recorded with better production for the Wotan Redivivus ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Wotan Redivivus

The fourth and so far final full-length release by Bilskirnir follows the same trajectory as the previous full-length. The production is a bit cleaner than the previous album, which some people ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - In Flames of Purification

Early Bilskirnir studio and demo releases sound like a very poorly produced rehearsal tape. This one is one of the rawest ones (even compared to the demo tapes!) The best thing about this album is ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Atavismus des Glaubens

Bilskirnir's discography is one of the most consistent in the German Black Metal scene, but I have to say I'm not a big fan of this release. The riffs are not as memorable as other Bilskirnir ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Wotansvolk

Do you like the melancholy of early Burzum? Listen to this album! Do you like the epic pagan marches of Graveland? Listen to this album! Bilskirnir is one of the forgotten names in underground Pagan ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Vorväter

Black Metal demos in general are very difficult to like, but there are some that create a very charming character by being even more primitive! This is one of those latter ones. All of these three ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Bilskirnir

This mini-release has only 2 songs, so I will write some essential points, not a full review. The first track is the re-recorded version of the song that later appeared on the split album with ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Wolfswut

First of all, this is not an essential release by this band (it includes the advance single of a song later featured on the next full-length, plus two B-sides). The main song is a very raw version of ...

Reviews for Bilskirnir - Hyperborea

Bilskirnir is probably the best example of a band that captured the magic of early Burzum. The vocals on almost all of Bilskirnir's releases are almost identical to Varg's vocal style on "Filosofem", ...
