Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2006-02-17 
Now with their 3rd vocalist Exodus charges on & keep the Bay Area Thrash Metal going. Rob Dukes sings with a nice mix of Paul Baloff (R.I.P.), Phil Anselmo, & David Wayne of Metal Church. Worth adding for the couple of tight thrash tunes. Overall not that captivating.

(((1))) TOO MANY FCCs – AVOID
((2)) Slow build-up into charging, squirrelly 90s metal ‘ala Exhorder, Pantera sound.
((((3)))) Tight, simple thrash with modern touches. Catchy riff.
(((4))) Sounds too much like “Blacklist” from the last album. A good riff nonetheless.
((((5)))) Very early 90s mid-paced thrash really great guitar work & structure.
((6)) Testament crossed with Pantera? The lyrics are amusing but the riffing & vocal delivery is average.
((((7)))) Crunchy, thick mosh pit, headbangin’ riffage, a few of the breakdowns sound a little forced, though.
((8)) Ugh! Too much bad harmonic note overkill.
((((9)))) Full-on thrash drum & bass laden barrage, nice change of pace. (FCC “Fuck” sung FOUR times!)
((((10)))) Even faster & more basic thrashin’ mayhem. (FCC “FUCKING” sung twice)
