Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-04-04
) Well played Black/Death Metal with the usual but good blazing speed, often blasting drums, tremolo riffs and screamed vocals. Mixing bands such as (early) At The Gates (in the vocals mostly), a hint of the early-mid-90’s “emo” (the kind KZSU used to play) and even Agalloch & Dissection in many places. Overall, pretty good stuff.

((((1))) Stirring riffs, audible vocals, a hint of that “expansive” sound that Dissection & Agalloch have nailed down.
((((2))) Slowly fading in build up, then blasting melodic Black Metal with a hint of At the Gates type vocals. Good hammering drumming, too. Gets doomy near the end.
(((3))) More blasting sort of odd metered drums, spiraling guitars. Aggressive sound not far off from early Enslaved with a overdose of tremolo riff but gets little too close to so-so emo stuff.
(((4))) Screamy, clanging BM with that late 90’s sound that Norway & Sweden made (in)famous.
((((5)))) (FCC “Fucking” sung once @ 2:45) Black Metal with a good low end and pinging cymbals, now if they could just do something about that “no more…( repeat 18x)” ending…”
