Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2008-02-06
Messed up, creepy, "blackend improv" with all the blackness, drone and dread and very little metal. Khlyst = Runhild Gammelsaeter from Thorr's Hammer and James Plotkin of Khanate, O.L.D., et. al.

Runhild sounds like Diamanda Galas' & Jarboe's wicked Norwegian daughter. Very disturbing and challenging stuff.

((((1)))) Screaming Norwegian insanity, bass squiggles and thudding drums, a nice, short mess.
((((2)))) Haunting dark ambience, pretty creepy.
(((3))) More sickness, cackling vocals like a Nordic Diamanda Galas with guitar fuzz underneath.
((((4)))) Sheer psychotic madness with high pitched screams, burst of drums and other insanity. Weeeeiiiirddd.
((((5)))) Distortion, random played drums, total audio night terrors.
((((6)))) Dark ambient with a sweaty, vicious hell beast lurking around.
((7)) Random bass/drum noodling and screams. Nothing special here.
(((8))) Spacey improv with touches of metal tone but resonates more on the vibrations and splatters of drums and guitars.
