Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2006-07-08 
Bombastic black metal from France. Sort of similar to Marduk & Darkthrone without necessarily ripping them off wholesale. Not extremely innovative but lots of shifiting tempos, nice melodic parts. Has the ‘right the right level of grimness’ in the vocals. The production is really tight production without getting overly slick. Enough to bare repeated listens
((((1)))) Fast, short blasting instrumental with some nice descending chords.
(((2))) Mid-pace to raging some interesting changes in chord & tempo structures.
(((3))) Droning, meandering but mostly raging speed, kinda catchy breakdowns.
((((4)))) Ripping black/thrash with some skitsophrenic changes. LOTS of great riffs!
(((((5))))) O.T.T. ultra-fast jet black speed with some very nice & unpredictiable shifts.
(((6))) Doomy blackness ‘ala Khold or Ved Buendes Ende
((((7)))) The ever common mix of grim vox, tremolo picking, rapid-fire beats. Hell, it works!
(((8))) Murky yet hypnotic & kinda slow riffing, bleak as ever overall effect.
(((9))) Odd-metered, 4-note riff with some killer guitar tones,
(((10))) Sparse, droning & clashing industrial interlude.
((((11)))) Ugly & necro but clear as (a black cloud filled) day, excellent varations in tempo & riff patterns. Actual track length is:
14:38 avoid the empty space & hidden track
