Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-01-24 
Pretty potent deathcore/death metal from Riverside, CA. Deep vocal tone and nothing that strays off into sounding overly forced or downright crappy. Pretty consistent in their heaviness, speed and intensity. The songs charge through fast and skip over a lot of generic stuff that drags down so many others. There's a strong influence from At the Gates & a bit of Amon Amarth.

(((1)))) Grunting livestock & hellbeasts, then a total blasting, screamy,
guttural vocal DM with a good sense of brutality vs. melody.
(((((2))))) Giant riff attack and go for the throat approach. Nice blast beats, too.
(((3))) A little stiff with the structure but it's almost there.
((((4)))) Biting a lot from the At the Gates riff history but blasts forward enough to make an good impact toward the later parts.
((((5)))) Amon Amarth-like riffs, then goes into a frezied blast vs. melodic DM tug o' war. Pretty interesting.
((((6)))) Thrashy, modern, Gothenborg-ish DM.
((((7)))) Good mix of drum blasts/sputters but drags a little.
((((8)))) Blugeoning riffs and extremely fast drums, then a heavy riffy breakdown 'ala Amon Amarth.
((9)) Mellow acoustic guitar outro. Hey kids, these are suppose to either intro the album or song. Havent' you heard "Ride the Lightning"? - Ragnar of Ravensfjord
