Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-03-06
Norwegian “no brainer” black metal. Often well-executed in every place. Stripped down the “essentials”: loud thrashing riffs, tons of bombast, fierce vocals, forceful repetition, goats and…satan. These fiends know how to put the METAL in Black Metal. Think Darkthrone, old Saytricon & 1349.

(((((1))))) Fast & lighting quick hellish Norsk BM. “Diis isz Sataneek Bleck Metahel!”
((((((2)))))) By horns of goat!-Is this fast & furious! Pure black/thrash madness. Nasty vocals.
((((((3))))) Punkish yet epic “blackened metal-crust” (!?) ‘ala recent Darkthrone. Sung in Norwegian. Kvlt!
((((4)))) Mid paced ‘death march’ with lots of nice Celtic Frost-ish vocal presence in the chorus. Drags a little too long though.
(((5))) Aggressive but “not-quite there” black/thrash with clangy drumming. Nice Slayer-ish solo. Yes, the title is redundant but “satan’s got all the best bands”.
((((6)))) Starts off being fairly ‘typical’ Norse BM but it continues to build into a real monster. (Check it out 2:50 onward).
((((((7))))) Black thrashin’ mayhemic destruction! Best onomonpoetic vocal moment: “Woorrraarrgh!”
(((((8)))) Tremelo riffing overkill but a nice & pissed off sound often venturing into even more of the “black thrash attack”. Best onomonpoetic moment: “Bleeechk!”
((((9)))) Another from the Darkthrone cookie cutter but what a grim, true and EVIL METAL cookie they bake! Fast, fast and faassst!
((((10)))) Slow, murky with some thick riffs, goes a little too long in places but otherwise it’s a ‘pleasing yet vile sound “Rrrryeeeeaaaha!”
