Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-03-12
Rather good heavy/sludge rock from this Oakland trio. Doesn’t sound like really anything that’s around now but stretches back to the early 90’s – bringing parts of Melvins, (early) Clutch, Screaming Trees to the mix. Sounds like they would be a kick ass live band.

((((1)))) Wailing hard rock action with a nice slowed down, introspective strummy part.
((((2)))) Serpentine, swaggery & direct amounts of heaviness and pretty odd but interesting vocals.
(((3))) Simple mix of the clean channel & the distortion. Often filled with some serious good riffs.
(((4))) Lots of starts/stops and changes in volume and intensity. Nice vocal performance.
((((5)))) Big, expansive yet sorta sludgey hard rawk.
((((6)))) Awesome, giant riff but then jumps back between it & a quiet tone & vocal-focused sound
(((7)))) Nice slow burning sort of ballad with really good vocals. It gets louder towards the end.
((((8)))) Odd metered riffs and a solid amount of aggression.
(((9))) Strummy, mellow acoustic ballad. Pretty good but a the vocals are too quiet.
((((10)))) Makes perfect transitions from quiet to loud with some suprises like violin. Tons of good bass & guitar playing.
(((11))) Powerful ballad-like with fuzzy guitars and some cool bass & drum sounds
