Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2006-02-17
Tough sounding English punk/hardcore from a band that goes back to early 80s. Has some connection to Drongos For Europe. Plows through a whole bunch of songs in nearly no time. Pretty similar to GBH, later Poison Idea and Bad Brains.
((((1)))) Wailling guitar, solid vocal attack.
(((2))) Rough n’ rumble Oi/slow Bad Brains mix.
(((3))) Bassy & thudding h.c./Oi! (FCC “shit”)
(((4))) A bit slower but still sorta speedy & catchy.
((5)) (FCC “FUCKING” in intro) Simple and annoyingly repetitive.
(((6))) Pretty ugly sound but slow & memorable.
((((7)))) TOO MANY FCCs AVOID!
(((8))) Repetitive as hell but nice guitar work & vocals.
((((9)))) Lots of snarling, uppity action.
(((10)) Rockin’, later GBH-like (FCC “shit”)
(((11)))) Rippin’ & snarling Oi/punk
(((12))) Beer swillin’, steady, fist flaying punk.
(((13))) 1-2 attack. Confrontational sound
((((14)))) Steady punk rawk with a right slaggin’ towards politicians & opportunists
(((15))) Very Oi! Sounding (FCC “bullshit”, “fucking” each sung once)
Bonus tracks are all recorded with a LOT of echo.
((((17)))) TOO MANY FCCs –AVOID!
((((18)))) Wailin’ guitar, punk set on destroy.
(((19))) Fast, DKs crossed
((((20))) (FCC “cunt” in the beginning) Totally destructive Poison Idea/Bad Brains with lots of feedback.
((21)) Raw but disjointed.
((((22)))) Speedy yet semi-structure. Here the rawness works to an advantage.
(((23))) Pummelling, nasty h.c. although even worse recording quality.
(((24))) Hammering punk rawk.
((((25))) Raw, rockin’ like the Germs on crack.
