Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-07-13
Hammerin’ heavy rawk action from members of Botch, These Arms Are Snakes and Unbroken. Shouted vocals, pummeling riffs and a decent amount of bass. Sounds like Botch (go figure), mid-period Neurosis, Converge & Kiss It Goodbye. Overall, a pretty good first effort.

((((1)))) (FCC “FUCKING” sung once) Wild opening with siren-like guitar moves into a steady heavy modern hardcore/heavy rawk feeling.
((((2)))) Mid-pace & heavy with a nice drum beat and very screamy vocals while maintaining decent melody.
(((3)))) Twangy, drifty interlude.
((((4)))) Push-pull tempo with bursts of heaviness and shouted but calculated vocals. Jesus Lizard crossed with Converge?
((((((5)))))) Awesome melodic vs. the heavy & rippin’. Super catchy chorus and build up.
((((6)))) Slow build up, stop starts & a ton of Neurosis & Kiss It Goodbye style.
(((7))) Drum based intro then odd-metered modern, heavy hardcore. Vocals are always “on” but the rest is passable.
(((8))) Overly long intro with the band talking to the producer. Slow, mellow strums then a doomy dirge also similar to Neurosis & Converge. Drags a little too much.
(9) Long noodly noise + feedback and some signing very slowly. Totally useless track.
