Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2004-07-18
Some pretty cool doom & grind/ultra-core from these Brit nutters. By nutters I mean NUTTERS - the band members are: Dave Cunt, Drunken, Dirty Von Arse, Misery and the “normal” guy - Migg Kenney.
Getting back to the music, these yobbos possess a strong Eyehategod & Bongzilla influence which makes sense since the drummer is from Iron Monkey (who were basically the UK version of EHG), whilst the others are from: Anaal Nathraak, Fukpig, Necro (not the Boston horror/porn psycho rapper) & Frost. The sound is pretty fucking basic sludge-core & damaged doom & riddled with a plague of fucked up lyrics. Overall, It’s not always on-target but when these hooligans get going they’re crackin’ good!
((((1)))) Noisy & severly damaged doom/sludge that later gets hella Swedish style D-beat. EyehateGod mixed with late Black Flag & Skitsystem? Incomprehensible vocals minus the chorus.
((((2)))) A monsterous barrage of blast beats leading into a totally mania grinding explosion something like Brutal Truth or Nasum mixed with Sandinyya.
(((3))) Straight-ahead sludge with a solid “EHG meets Autopsy” groove. (FCCs “fucking” 0:46)
(((4))) Mid-tempo Discharge crossed with a nihilistc gonzo hate vibe later leading to grind. Waaay too many FCCs to be avoid the wrath of Mikely Powell & the crew.
(((5))) Slow, creeping sludge/doom thingy. It’s only 1:25
(((6)))) Massive Black Metal style-intro then LOUD & UGLY sludge that fights it out with the BM style. KILLER hypnotic riffing at: 2:20-2:55.
((((7)))) Straight ahead sludge ‘ala Grief/EHG/Noothgrush complete with a KILLER hypnotic riffing at: 2:20-2:55.
(((8))) Holy shit! Total D-beat massacre ‘ala Disrupt but with a passion only for totally nihilism. (1:07-1:09 MAJOR FCC - “shit for brains...you fucking cunt!” otherwise the rest of the “naught bits” are incomprehensible)
(((9))) Thunderous, EPIC, LOUD & UGLY über-sludge that some some killer riffing & (FCC 2:37-2:39 “fucking”)
