Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-08-05
Discography of old-school Boston-area hardcore/metal crossover band. Pretty crucial stuff for it’s time. Soundwise pretty close to (old) Agnostic Front, Adolescents and Crucifix.

(((((2)))) Rippin’ and to the point late 80’s HC.
((((3)))) Thick, gang chorus filled and kinda metal guitars.
((((5)))) Soaring guitars, ugly but right on the attack vocals.
((((((7)))))) Fierce & fast East Coast H.C.
((((8)))) Catchy riffs galore one of the original “stabbed in the back” tunes.
((((9)))) Lo-fi, charged rawkin’ & speedy ‘ala Agnostic Front.
((((10)))) Rough & thick guitars with some good breakdowns.
((((11)))) Snarlin’, punky with some rad vox.
((((12)))) Galloppy, tempo, catchy and chargin’
((((13)))) Metallic, marsh riff into total crossover feel.
((((14)))) Tight & tough with a solid mix of guitar/bass/drums.
(((15))) Kinda generic thrash but still decent.
((((16)))) (FCC “Fucking” sung once) early Metallica-like riffs (“Seek and Destroy”) mixed with finger-point
((((17)))) Real basic “I live by my rules” HC. Great guitar sound.
((((18)))) DRI mixed with Black Flag?
((((((19)))))) Urgent, to the point ‘ala ‘the Flag and Agonstic Front.
((((20)))) Charging, raw, ripping.
((((21)))) Very catchy riff with good breakdown.
(((22))) Hard rock riff not too different than earlier tracks.
((((23)))) Meandering but nice to hear ‘em slow down.
(((((24))))) More hard rockin’ riff then full-on NYHC er…Boston HC!
(((((25)))) Thick riffs, nice distant vox. Straight-Edge anthem vibe.
((((26)))) Pretty solid version of #21
