Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2005-09-05

Excellent, noisy electro-industrial from México in a similar aesthetic & sound as say: Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly or Wumpscut. Lots of big, fast beats and distorted alien vocals. Good to see somebody do this style in this day & age and do it so damn enticing.
((((1)))) Horrific noise atmospherics. Kind of CMI –label inspired
(((2))) Slow build up with roundabout tempo and repetitive electro-industrial goodness.
((((3)))) Ambient, soundtrack-like, nice groove like old Wax Trax! -Era stuff.
((4)) So-so Front 242 mixed with bad slow techno.
(((((5))))) Throbbing, hard clashing beat, gets the kids in latex ‘a dancin’.
((((6))) SKIP IT – TOO MANY FCCs & too hard to edit it.
((((7)))) Great beats & clenched teeth vocals. Basically it’s Skinny Puppy in Spanish. Cachorro de Esmirriado en español.
(((((8))))) AWESOME creepy horror soundtrack. Very reminicent of Goblin or Midnight Syndicate.
((((9)))) Slow building, electronic slithering beats and evil vocals.
((((10)))) Brooding dark ambient, manipulated horror movie samples, nice & creepy.
11-65 blank tracks.
(66) Really dumb “hidden track” idea with a girl saying “silenceo” and random noises.
