Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2005-11-17 
Horror-laden, heavy, hardcore punk. Enough unexpected twists & turns to keep it from falling in the “metalcore” trap. Sounding close to Drowningman, Left For Dead or recent Converge.
((((1)))) Slow, creepy Danzig-like then scurries quick into angrily barked out hardcore.
(((((2))))) Wow! Killer charging but varied pace, manages to mix Left For Dead and Refused.
(((3))) TOO MANY FCCs AVOID!!!
(((((4))))) Classic & classy mix of 80’s & late 90’s East Coast hardcore
((((5))))) Twangy guitar potential David Lynch soundtrack or interlude.
((((6)))) Foaming at the mouth and slowly bleeding, lots of great riffs & shifts.
((((7)))) Nice D.C. by way of Drowningman sound. Rad multi-vocal parts, too.
(((8))) Gallop & mosh riff mania, the vocals aren’t always “on’ though.
((((9)))) Another movie-like, twangy interlude.
((((10)))) Melodic & gang backing vocals. Battering breakdowns.
((((11)))) Driving, back to the D.C. sound (think Jawbox or Government Issue)
((((12)))) Horror movie sample, burst of heavy-as bricks h.c. Spastic vocals, wailing guitars.
((((13))))) Converge-influenced epic piece, great vocals all around.
