Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2005-06-08
Rather heavy, mostly almost above average extreme, kinda tech metal. These dudes are from Nebraska but don’t expect Bright Eyes much less Wastoid. Most of the songs have good parts but fail at being actual songs. Still, some talent and natch for making stuff interesting on occasion.
(((1))) Crazy amount of stops & starts, Swedish metal fixation, death grunts, mostly solid riffing.
(((2))) Unearth mixed with Dillinger Escape Plan. Not bad but too much fretboard tappin’.
((3)) Lo-fi jam session instrumental.
(((4))) Awesome harmonics, cyclical yet simple riffs, then hella tech madness (that suprisingly doesn’t suck too much).
(((5))) Simultaneously thudding and blasting, shitloads of Swedish melodic DM and more Dillinger Escape worship.
(6) One guitar riffs and the other fret taps, chug-chug-wank-wank. Zzzz..zzzz....
((7)) More testing of the melodic vs. brutal. Extremely standard & boring.
((8)) Fast & noodly tech/death metal. Good but occasionally annoying with the excessive notes.
((9)) Epic with weird riffing, excessive flanger abuse, samples, 4:37 long (the 4:38-12:58 blank space, 12:59- end is a Primus cover, WTF? Lame!)
