Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-02-19
German Speed Metal legends (alongside Destruction, Sodom, & Tankard), proving yet again that they’re still to pull it off and rock out on the mid-paced tunes. Albeit they don’t do it at every turn here but once they get going it sounds rather good and they can still thrash yer ears off.

(((1))) Starts a little weak but builds into a pretty solid thrasher. Not so big on the chorus though.
(((2))) Fast, drum heavy mixing old school speed metal.
((((3))))) Riffy, 80’s mid-paced thrash with Middle Eastern-styled guitar flourishes. Killer solo, too.
(((((4))))) A ballad? No wait, after 1:50 it slices your face off with violent thrash! “I have lived in endless pain/now I pay it back in spades”. Fuck yeah!
(((5))) Decent, kinda OK “metalcore” meets thrash? + a “ready for the video” on Detschland Headbanger’s Ball at 3am feeling.
(((6))) Speed metal with that offers much in the beginning but comes up short with the corny gang chorus. (Was is this a Vio-lence album?)
(((((7))))) Slightly tech riffs & solos,“typical” Kreator thrash overkill formula. Can’t fix what ain’t broken.
(((8))) Anthemic, bangin’ Euro Metal with OK but iffy chorus.
(((9))) Short guitar interlude
((((10)))) A total blast of speed and 100% metal riffage in the pre-chorus.
