Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-01-03
Hard-edged not totally hardcore or metal but totally loud & rockin’ punkish anthems from these Canadian kids. Super loud and clear production that balances the guitar and vocals to a fine point. Lyrics are actually positive and dealing with the notion of living “without dead time”. Y’know sometimes you just NEED to hear that. Overall, good stuff that might not sink in the first time but it pays off.
(((1))) Uppity, heavy rockin’ modern kinda HC with a slight screamo vibe.
((((2)))) Polished but aggressive, straight up and inflectious.
((((3)))) Slow burner builds to an awesome big, sound with singable verses & choruses. Sounds a lot like Amen crossed with Refused.
(((4))) Great riff but the song itself is a little half-baked.
((((5))))) Consistent and catchy with a nice slow burner guitar solo.
(((6))) (TOO MANY FCCs AVOID!)
((((7)))) Slow, metal-riffs into some twangy Southern flavored sludge ‘ala Alabama Thunderpussy. Pretty rad for what it is.
(((((8))))) “Huoo-uhh!” fast & sharp metallic, heavy modern punky hardcore.
((9)) Yikes – what happened here? Generic metalcore screamo? Next…
(((((10)))))) (FCC “fucking” sung once) Fast, near-thrashin’ hardcore. Very basic but cool lyrics,. “Out in the sunshine I can’t hack it/Give me the night with a black jean jacket”
((((11)))) Swaggery, chunky metallic, hardcore with lots of “hey heys” & some more good lyrics.
(((12))) Mixed up tempos and vocal tones, so-so approach overall, redundant and silly in too many places.
