Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-02-19
Varied heavy rock/metal and “post-rock” with a mix of the usual “Neuro-Isis” sound plus bits of Converge, Pelican and Quicksand. While it’s not the most original thing this is well done and often memorable. So for that this deserves attention.

((((1)))) Thunderous riffs, ripped throat vocals with a few melodic voices
(((2))) Picks up and expands upon where the last song left off. More spacious but a little flat.
((((3)))) Hard hitting riffing with melodic vocals more of the “drifting outward” guitars.
(((4))) Confusing vocals but strong riffing & drums.
((((5)))) Slow, mellow Isis/Converge-like, typical but quite good in this case.
(((6))) Ambient intro, slow strummed guitars and emotive (not “emo”) vocals. Kinda like Tool & Quicksand mixed with Isis?
((((7)))) Big ass riff, generally moody vibe along with good straight forward and introspective vocals.
(((8))) Charging, thudding but pretty much stuck in one direction of chug-chug, growl-growl. It’s just OK at that.
(((9))) Doomy-groove with a ton of guitar and low end and a few Quicksand/Mogwai style moves.
((((10)))) Loud blast of vocals and bombast “Youuuu can’t...!”, steady& heavy that mixes the loud stuff with an odd hazy pre-chorus.
