Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2006-09-03
Stellar mix of introspective riff rock & epic, blackend metal. Lots of beautiful guitar sounds. Comparatively speaking think of early Ulver, Mogwai, Katatonia and Pelican. Lyrically influenced by the realm of nature. If you like lots of great guitar sound you won’t go wrong with this. Totally heartstirring stuff.
(((((1))))) Feedback, one part similar to Dead Can Dance then a mix of cold, melodic black metal.
(((((2))))) Passionate, rockin’, nice use of different vocal styles. Would easily fail in a lesser band’s hands.
(((((3))))) Awesome dark ambient interlude.
((((((4))))) Slow doomy, pretty, melancholic and even woodsy sounding.
(((((5)))) Excellent Ulver-ish strummy, great mix of acoustic & electric guitars.
(((((6))))) Spacious, rolling instrumental. Very nice.
(((((7))))) Nice work out with several scales and basic strumming vocals come towards the end.
((((((8))))) Very odd noise, effects via guitar drone.
