Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-02-20
Often good modern noise rock/metal with a ton of distorted vocals and riffy guitars. This sound has been done a lot but it’s usually done right. This is more evidence that shows how a new band can build upon an old sound. Close to bands like Today Is The Day, Unsane, Old Man Gloom and 400 Blows.

(((1))) Good mix of noise rock and noisy post-hardcore.
((((2)))) Built around on main riff and the it gets real explosive while being continually heavy.
((((3)))) Noodly and noise with super wacked out vocals.
(((4))) Tons of riffs, pretty steady with lots of overlaid guitar parts. Nicks a few moments of the Jesus Lizard classic “Gladiator”.
(((5))) Acoustic intro then builds to a walls of guitars
(((7))) Random noodling for 40 secs..
(((((8))))) Now THIS is a HEAVY Riff! Mean, lean and a total fighting machine of a song. One of those songs that you hear and go “holy crap! Who’s THIS?!?”
(((9))) Fast, punkish and often gallopy but with more low end and giant vats of distortion.
((((10)))) Epic, kind swaggery & psych-leaning, and a slow rumbing feeling throughout and a slow rumbing feeling throughout.
