Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2008-01-14
Spacey, modern, sci-fi metal from Austrailia. Pretty interesting stuff with hints of mid-period Neurosis and the better side of Prong and Treponem Pal. The guitar tones and the song structures have quite a bit of personality and makes these guys stand out fairly well.

((((1)))) Thundering, sci-fi heaviness with aggressive vocals.
((((2)))) Spiraling riffs all over and bombastic rhythmic section and a really noisey ending.
(((3))) So-so thick & dense metal. Not bad for what it is.
(((4))) More spirial tempos, really solid guitar sounds but the vox are just there.
((((5)))) Burly yet melodic and slightly catchy. Nice VoiVod-ish backing chorus.
((((6)))) Heavy & rockin’, some really good riffs and drumming.
(((7))) Uptempo but too reliant on the same patterns repeated over & over.
((((8)))) Rather heavy and continually moving steadily through space. Really dense stuff.
((((9)))) Thick riff with guitar noodling and some nice drumming.
