Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2008-05-27
Blackened death metal from Austria with a penchant for blast beats and a few nonsensical titles. (See “Sodomythicalfrostgoats” by Impetity, et. al). Generally good playing and production-overall nothing “top shelf” but it gets the job done just like their contemporaries Dark Funeral & Behemoth.

((((1)))) Blasty, blackened death metal with a silly but fun chorus. Bondage Goat Zombie which came first?
(((((2))))) Thrashy Blackish Metal with a Death Metal undercurrent. Good & tight drumming & a nice melodic solo.
((((3)))) Acoustic intro (!?) then total bombast and blast (‘ala Dark Funeral or Marduk) that pulls back into that typical heavy, modern breakdowns with chaotic solos.
(((4))) Trounced by a mass gallop of riffs and unexpected “American Death Metal” like breakdowns, gets clunky pretty fast.
((5)) Slow to mid-tempo thick riffs with an overall wide open sound. Not bad but very boring.
(((((6))))) 1000 mph tremelo riffing and ultra-blast beats, commanding vocals, pretty awesome. Throats, guitars, drums & ears - all shredded.
(((7))) Tons more tremelo picking with a “epic” like Behemoth or Nile – admirable job but it’s been done lots of times before.
((8)) Sluggish death-doom, annoying pinch harmonics and cheesy clean singing. Yikes.
(((9))) Guttural (Austro) German voice, bells, general quasi-gothic/death-doom thing
