Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2008-09-09 
Energetic, not 100% hardcore or 100% metal but sort of in-between without the usual metalcore baggage. sounds like a mix of Today is The Day, Amen (especially in the vocals) and maybe a more interesting version of Converge. Overall, an OK effort but certainly tedious over the course of 12 tracks.

(((1))) Short, bursting out heavy-ish, hardcore “for the kids”.
(((2))) Fast and jagged, with a few nods to Tragedy and Converge
(((3))) Slow build up with that “soaring” thing so many of these bands do nowadays (damn you, Pelican!).
((4)) Pointless “electronic fuckery” interlude.
((((5)))) Doomy, moody ‘ala Mare & some of the better Hydrahead bands.
((6)) Jud-jud, repetitive and lacking any character.
(((7))) Fast, charging distorted vocals.
((((8)))) Up front vocals but enough variation to keep it interesting.
(((9))) Twangy, slow, drifting interlude. Not bad.
(((10))) Big-ass lumbering with high pitched guitars.
Could been better if there wasn’t a jillion NeurosIsis-bands.
((11)) Odd experimental guitar thing.
((12)) Noisy, mixed up bro-core. Meh.
