Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2006-11-01
Off-kilter but pretty catchy death metal with lots of techy parts but not quite to the level of masters like Cryptopsy but certainly getting there. A pretty serious prog & fusion influence ‘ala Cynic or later-era Death.
((((1)))) Nice mix of simple riffs and complex breaks/blasts.
(((((2)))) Excellent straight-forward DM a few tricky breakdowns and nice soloing.
((((3)))) Weird cycling riffs and tons of crafty time changes like a DM King Crimson?
(((((4))))) Bass, crazy time signatured havin’ chunky riff lovin’ metal. The guitars are just insane in this simple but not really THAT simple, ya know?
(((5))) Pretty good mix of prog, thrash and DM but they’ve been down this road already.
((((6)))) Thunderous death/doom with some nice places for the riffs to just sit and resonate.
((((7))))) Plenty of riff noodling. Pretty fun sound and catchy and loopy.
(((8))) Here is your mellow interlude.
(((9))) Weird and too focused on the “let’s play brutal but like Bill Bruford jamming with Trey Azagtoth…mmmk?” thing.
((((10)))) Epic uh….”metallic death prog”, fuckin aye it works, tho’. More changes than the Napalm Death line up
