Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-04-21
Room clearing, hateful, 1 man Black Metal/Noise/Dark Ambient made by a Korean teenager. Apparently, he recorded tracks 1-7 as a 12 year old. This is filled with a shitload of fuzzed out guitar and blown way out vocals and haunting keyboards. Strangely some the later tracks it sounds a tad like some of the most cranked up & heavy Japanese psych (think Mainliner) by way of Black/Doom metal. Other times it comes out sounding extremely evil sounds by way of a Blackish Metal take on Brighter Death Now. Lyrically, the songs are all about the horrors of war (show in great detail in the CD package). A real challenge but a good one. Pyha = is Korean for Ruined.

((((1))))) Extreme guitar fuzz & resonation. Short intro.
((((2)))) More harsh fuzz & super distorted vocals. Slow and menacing. Borders on Black Noise & Dark Ambient with the short spoken & horror movie thing devolving into very raw BM. Tedious after about 5 minutes but again, there’s some choice moments.
(((3))) Dark ambient with crackling fire and spooky voices.
((((4)))) Dark ambient/doomish BM. Sorta like a lo-fi Summoning or even Xasthur.
(((((5))))) Nice dark ambient and infernal, doomed as fuck BM that drones a note for what’s just 2-3 seconds but it makes it feel like a least 10 minutes. Killer.
(((6))) Crickets, dark whispered voices, sounds a LOT like Lurker of Chalice.
(((((7))))) Ugly & eee-vil, harsh, guttural black pit of fuzz with a clanging drum machine & bass. Later makes like a Black Metal Bardo Pond & back again. Hypnotic stuff.
((((8))))) Hazy, floating, depressive and strangely layered BM and harsh vocals and mournful screams.
((((9)))) Dark ambient and faint bleak noise mixed with random piano, drums and growls. Haunted house, indeed. Similar ot Celtic Frost’s “Danse Macabre”
((((((10)))))) KILLER, slow & despondent BM with a good mix of loud as hell guitars, clear bass and eerie keyboards. Damn, this is REAL depressive Black Metal. NOT for the weak!
