Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-01-03
Killer mix of the British metal label’s bands throughout the last 2 decades. Next to Earache this was one of the best metal labels in the late 80’s & into the 90’s (Deviated Instinict, Pentagram AND Darkthrone. Helloooo?) and still continues to put out top bands.

((((((1))))) (FCC “fucking” sung once) Thick & dense Death Metal with Mikeal from Opeth on vox. A strong Morbid Angel/Entombed vibe.
((((2)))) Doom Metal ‘ala old Katatonia with an odd melodic, clean sung breakdown.
((((((3)))))) Slow, winding & crushing Japanese ladies making thee necro doom! Awesome!
(((((4)))) Fast, uppity hard rockin’, melodic, soaring female vocals. Strange but catchy.
(((((((((5)))))))) Totally bangin’ Norsk black/thrash, a very liberal Celtic Frost influence (the “Circle of the Tyrants” riff you CAN’T go wrong with that). Oüh…Hail!
((((((6)))))) Excellent, Swedish, melancholic loud, hard rock/”doom pop”?
((((((7)))))) Mellow, 70’s style intro then become epic proggy metal. One of their “hits”.
(((8))) Slow to uppity, melodic metal/hard rock with a thick layer of “broken hearted” emoting. Not really their best.
(((((9))))) Heavy, doomed out intro, elongated riffs and epic vibe and some nice keyboards.
(((((((10)))))) Rippin’ thrashy/melo-death before all the lame Hot Topic/Myspace haircut kids stole their riffs.
(((((((((11))))))))) Unfuckwithable 100% classic American Doom/Heavy Rock Gods. To know Metal you MUST know this band. That simple.
(((((((((((((12)))))))))) 3 Words: Unholy Black Metal! And yes, it’s fuckin’ HEAVY, alright?
((((13)))) Gloomy, death/doom with trippy guitar sounds & female backing vocals. Before this became a cliché and before this band decided to ape Depeche Mode.
(((((((14))))))) Ugly-ass Bay Area Death Metal, lots of downtuned bass/guitars. No polish, no blast beats just old school death metal.
(((((((14))))))))) Amebix-related and influenced, apocalyptic doom crust. Massive low end and way in the back vocals. Awesome!
(((((((15))))))) Whoa! Extremely wild & raw crust with incomprehensible (save the chorus) vocals. Smell the stench.
(((((((16)))))))) Ripper crust, total filth attack.
