Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-08-24 
speed and partying. Chock full of the usual “muni-wasted” elements like big, catchy riffs and killer drumming (via Dave Wittie) and funny lyrics.

(((((1))))) Awesome instrumental intro.
((((2)))) Completely thrashable with a bunch of great breakdowns.
(((((3))))) Extremely fast & rippin’, gang vocals galore.
(((((4))))) Wild riff, supercharged tempo, like old Anthrax on meth. Chorus sounds like “Metal Shark” and not “Mental Shock”.
((((5)))) Barrelling through with totally headbanging riffs.
(((((6))))) Opens with a riff like Anthrax’s “Imitation of Life” then bursts into another ultra-thrasher with occasional blast beats, no less.
((((((7))))) Ultra rad crossover madness with lyrics about high school food fights. “Milk cartons raised forward toward the sky”. Ha-ha!
((((8)))) Funny spoken intro about a guy who’s pressured to party. The results are splattered about in the song.
(((9))) Standard but good 80’s fare.
((((10)))) Thick riffing, conjuring images of a slowed down the instantly sped up mosh pit.
((((11)))) Melodic and straight forward then explodes into more speed & aggression. Lyrics have that EC Comics-like play on words.
((((12)))) A rampage of really fast thrash and some solid melodic breakdowns.
(((((13))))) (FCC “fucking” sung pretty fast). Killer drumming mixed with a D.R.I.-like frenzy.
((((14)))) Gallop-riffs and nice chorus making sort of “anthemic thrash”?
(((((15))))) Great song BUT…WAY TOO MANY FCCS – AVOID!
(((((16))))) (FCC “fuckin” sung 3 times that are audible) Short fast & loud. Mosh-tastic!
(((17))) Weirdly “normal, still very 80’s but suprinsgly straight ahead but funny, sarcastic lyrics.
