Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2008-10-28
Jagged, aggressive tech-death metal and space rock? Lots of odd-metered tempos, rapsy vocals. All of this is immersed in a sci-fi and alien theme. A few psych/space rock bits are thrown in as well. Overall pretty interesting though at times confusing stuff. Very untypical for Napalm to sign a band like this (as the bulk of their roster is Gothic or Folk Metal). Fits well next to Voi Vod’s “Killing Technology”, Cryptopsy and Intronaut.

(((1))) Thick, chunky riffs, loose and very crazy metered tempos. Jazz-prog parts in the middle.
(((2))) Up-down tempo into straight up low-tuned American style early 90’s Death Metal + more prog.
((((3)))) Wanky but amusing guitar bursts into clanging tech-death.
(((4))) Pretty-straight forward then more tricky tempos at the -3:00 mark.
((((5))))) Alien transmission space improv noises in first half. Then flurries of notes and clusters of riffs but a little sluggish in this part.
(((((6))))) Dense, unpredictable bursts of rage but also at times restrained. Really well done.
(((7))) Blasting, weird-metered, clangy tech-death.
((((8)))) More aggressive, sci-fi VoiVod-ish stuff in the middle. Ends with a space drone that leads to…
(((((9)))) Epic, interstellar improv jam. Tell some “heads” that this band is Osaka and see what happens.
