Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-11-04
Classic American Death Metal playing straight up (you guessed it) death metal. Nothing too fancy here - just riffs, guttural (but audible) vocals and low tuned guitars. Good stuff overall.

(((((1))))) Killer, fast & pummeling USDM
(((((2)))))) Fast, almost hardcore speed crossed with the “death tone” of Celtic Frost and classic 80’s solos.
((((3)))) Thick, solid, mid-paced with a nice groove.
((((4)))) More groove and metal swagger, good breakdowns, too.
(((5))) Slow, plodding but not too bad, just not all there.
((((6)))) More fast n’ razor sharp harcore-influenced DM.
((((7)))) Great riff. ”Typical” of Obituary to pour on the crushing doom riffage with the wailing solos.
(((8))) Slow, death/doom, nothing too interesting minus the ode to “Children of the Grave”
((9)) Sluggish, boring slow & repetitive DM.
((((((10))))) KILLER, rippin’ kinda speedy DM with more Celtic Frost worshipping riffs.
(((11))) Decent but not quite on the mark death/doom
