Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2005-08-24 
31 songs from the last 5 years (duh!) of this long-running Finnish hardcore rippers. These dudes are in their late 30’s/early 40’s and STILL tear it up. All sung in Finnish except for the killer Turbonegro cover. Most songs are pretty catchy & memorable (though occasionally ‘samey’).
(((1)))) Rippin’ hardcore
(((((2))))) Really fast d-beat laden
((((3)))) Slow, heavy & metalic like Zeni Geva or mid-period Neurosis
((((4)))) Charging, big fuzzed out bass
((((5)))) Rhytmic and straight-ahead mix
(((((6)))) Massively catchy & crust attack.
((((7)))) Snarling, wallopping, “whuuhhhrrah!”
((((8))))) Big ‘ol beat, huge shouted vocals.
(((((9))))) Awesome bass lines, headthuddin’ action. Punkish riffage with total h.c. vocals.
(((((10))))) Apocalyptic, speedy, dual vocals. Great chorus.
((((11)))) Raw, roaring & in your face.
((((12)))) Kinda similar to early Discharge with simple beat & “haiku” lyric format.
((((13)))) Fast, charging, spiteful.
(((((14)))) Turbonegro cover, super catchy riff, “ohhh erection!” chorus (FCC “fucking” or maybe the whole song since it’s called “I Got Erection”?)
(((((15))))) Nasty, ugly harsh h.c. - and this is from just 2 years ago!
((((16)))) Chunky riffing, lots o’ bass sorta gallopping not in a thrash metal way, though.
(((((17))))) Fast as fuck, blazing, crusty h.c.
(((18))) A little too focused on the vocals & not much else. Great drumming tho’.
(((19))) Pissed off vocals, straight ahead riffs.
((((20)))) Battering raw, shouted hardcore.
(((21))) Full scale 5-note riff attack
((((22)))) Big & bass, super catchy lyrics (even if you don’t know Finnish).
(((((23))))) Slow, anthemic Amebix-like crusher
((((24)))) Noisy, raw live track.
((((25)))) Straight up & pissed off raw punk/hardcore.
(((26))) Blazing fast, d-beat raw blugeoning
((((27))))Midpaced, big ‘ol thick riffs, nice!
((((28)))) Downtowned, then fast barrage of h.c. & wailing guitars
((((29)))) Like Venom fighting it out with Discharge at the warehouse show.
(((30))) Ugly & pummelling, great riffing.
((((31)))) More Amebix, sounding mid-paced/slow stuff. Fuckin’ awesome, catchy stuff!
