Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2006-04-11
Solid, rockin’ punk/hardcore from S.F. Anthemic & often fast & for the most part and catchy as hell. Reminicent of Gorillia Biscuts, Circle Jerks, Black Flag & Dillinger Four.
((((1)))) Straight-up modern punk, no pop, no crust, no Oi! Just fuckin’ punk.
((((2)))) 80’s hardcore crossed with modern choruses & some breakdowns. (FCC “fucking” sung twice)
(((((3))))) Uppitty & fast, great vocal sound.
((((4))))) Anthemic ode to the legends of “4 bars’, Ginn riffs, and other (police) stories.
(((((5))))) Driving structure, excellent singing in meter effect.
(((((6)))) Loud as hell, driving beat, classic West Coast punk/h.c. (FCC “fucking”))
((((((7))))) Fast & melodic ‘ala Gorilla Biscuts
(((((8))))) Ridicously fun, some really cool changes in volume & (FCC “fucking”)
((((((9)))))) Circle Jerks crossed with Black Flag? Yeah, this is THAT good!
((((10)))) Dillinger Four styled infectious as fuck punk.
(((((11))))) CLASSIC & classy riffs, insightful lyrics, the total package, essentially
(((((12))))) Hardcore crossed with punk – relly they do both and equally awesome.
