Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-12-08 
Old and obscure 80’s metal band from Denver with a new death & thrash metal sound. Their 1984 & 1987 releases were recorded with Harry "Tyrant" Conklin of Jag Panzer hence they had a more traditional metal sound. Since 2000 they’ve been playing this mix of death & bits of doom metal and thrash metal. This is pretty good for what it is. Sounds like a mix of Grave, Dismember and Dissection. All lyrics about satan, go figure.

((1))) Cheesy but amusing intro possibily stolen form a cheap horror film.
(((((2)))) Slow-ish melodic Swedish death metal like later-era Grave with some tradition melodic soloing.
(((((3))))) Slow death/doom into ripping, thrashy/death metal.
((((4)))) A solid mix of fast DM and doomy breakdowns. Very Dismember/(old) Entombed
influenced.
(((5)))) Silly intro about “satan’s seed” then slow winding kinda doom (FCC “fucking”). Not bad but mostly “there”.
(((6))) Weird ethereal interlude like an evil Dead Can Dance?
((((7)))) Punishing, Swedish styled Death Metal circa: 1993. Nice drumming (FCC “fucking” sung once)
((8)) Slow & sluggish melodic DM
((((9)))) Really good mix of mid-tempo traditional metal and DM. Somehow this really works.
(((10))) Spoken interlude. A bit too silly
((((11)))) Slow intro, into blasting DM. Rather bangin’.
((12)) Slow “spooky” interlude. Hey, leave that to Marduk and King Diamond, will ya?
((13)) “Demonic death/doom” into a thrashy blast in the second half. It all sounds rather forced.
((14)) A storm, a UFO landing then slow riffs, and redikoulous vocals and overall vibe. About as “evil” as Count Floyd on SCTV.
(((15))) Spoken Satanic ritual chanting (hosting?) and summoning of thee beast by all it’s unholy names. Crank this in front of the next Pat Robertson rally.
