Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-04-07 
Death rock pure and simple. This is the D.I.J. of the early era ’81-’83 which sprang from the ashes of the leftist punk duo Crisis (the other half Tony Wakeford formed Sol Invictus). This is the Patrick Leagals (Sixth Comm), David Tibet (Current 93), and Douglas P. line up. Very drum and bass heavy and often plunging further into those dark abysses that were opened up by Joy Division, The Birthday Party and Killing Joke.

((((1)))) Stark, bassy and horn-laden dirge.
(((2))) Morose death rock, like a really sloooww Joy Division or Warsaw outtake.
(((3))) Guitar shimmer & strum but lying down mostly in the mire of misery.
(((4))) Distorted, raw live feeling with lots of beats and an almost Fall-like vibe.
((((5)))) Lunging, bassy with distant vocals.
((((6)))) Excellent but more raw, “post-punk/gothic” despair.
(((7))) Random short drum/bass workout.
(((8))) Odd-metered but lots of great percussion & bass lines.
(((9))) Odd overlapping tape loops in English and German.
((10)) Spare but brash beats but nothing else.
(((11)) Totally dreary death rock.
(((12))) Lots of bass, drums and some weezing loony sound in the foreground.
((13)) Too chaotic and weird. Far too disjointed to be a cohesive song.
(((((14))))) The beginning of the “martial/neo folk” sound. Excellent drumming and murky bass lines and “spooky guy” vocals.
((((15)))) Death-dance doom with more distant vox. Makes for great listening at 3am after a few drinks and a Mishma book in hand.
(((16))) Obsessive sounding and kinda creepy and dark.
(((17))) Miserable, plagued and despondent, lo-fi death rock.
