Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-05-30 
Drifting, epic, vast mix of heaviness and some introspective mellow parts. Reminiscent of Neurosis, Yob, Beyond Dawn and the short-lived Bay Area band - The Gault. Overall a good album but it takes a few spins to get get into but it's worth it.

(((1))) Slow, winding and sort of crushing doomy “apocalyptic metal”.
((((2))))) Psych intro then moving into a straight-up heavy rocker. Not unlike Yob’s excursions into “way-out” doom then goes back to psych.
(((3))) Interlude with mellow piano, generally a “post-rock” feeling.
((((4))) Drum-laden, slowly, drifting into heavy doomy rock, a sax part comes into the 11 minute mark.
(((5))) Slow, mellow languid instumental. Even uses a similar sample that Neurosis used (on “Enemy of the Sun”).
(((6)))) Epic track with laser effects, slow and lunging build up and a general mix between the quiet sullen and the big, heavy parts
