Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-09-18
Big sounding, epic death/black metal from Poland. Huge production (without being overly slick) and tons of riffs. While they’ve often been compared to other bands, they’re starting to come into their own sound on this album.

(((1))) Decent intro to set the tone.
((((2)))) Battering, fast riffy with guttural vox. Decent pinch harmonics and good drumming.
(((((3))))) Chunky riffs, brutal vocals and really heavy breakdowns ‘ala Gojira crossed with Morbid Angel.
(((4))) Confused mix of mid paced to blasting tempos, both trying too hard to be ‘epic’.
(((((5)))))) Killer opening with tons of rapid fire drumming and massive riffs and guitar squiggles.
(((((6))))) Insane amount of “jud-jud” and with a nice overwhelming sense of heaviness and melodicism
((((7)))) Straight up, rippin’ death metal with almost understandable vocals and 6 string acrobatics
((((8)))) Retro yet modern guitars and pissed off vocals. Imagine Megadeth focused on the Deth (Metal).
(((9))) Spoken word & guest vox from Warrell Dane (Nevermore) and pretty good melodic DM
(((((10)))) Slow intro into violent, ultra-fast blasting. Similarity Nile. Comparisons aside, this slays!
((((11)))) More of the same as #10 bash & thrash with wailing guitars. The lame title doesn’t take away from how good this is.
