Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-05-26 
Modern Thrash Metal with touches of super-early U.S. Death Metal (vocally not far off from Master or Repulsion), current death metal & NYHC. Chunky riffs, gang vocals, twiddling guitar bits & bobs and all that. Overall, a mostly good release.

((((1)))) (FCC “Fucking” sung once). Begins with some lurking basement-dwelling thing then gets speedy but melodic & all crossover/thrashy.
((((2)))) Steady, pummeling & VERY, very fast. Reminds me a lot of S.O.D. & Crumbsuckers at their best.
((3))) Silly, “satanic party thrash” thing. The main riff is a sped up version of “Don’t Burn the Witch” & “Welcome to Hell” by Venom. Not a bad but just really too goofy.
((((4)))) (FCC “fucking” sung once). NYHC stylee mixed with a steady mid-paced mosh. You can already picture the doods with the b-ball jerseys moshin in ‘da pit.
(((5))) Surfy (!) intro, thick thrash riffs but overall a bit confused.
((6)) More NYHC mosh meets metal-core and thrash. Again, a little too confused.
(((((7))))) “Thrash Unity” tune but damn if it doesn’t mix crossover (even a few hints of Minor Threat & even Wolfbrigade in the vocals & charging tempo), thrash metal and modern mosh perfectly.
(((8))) Dwiddly-dee & mosh-thrash crossover thingy
((((9)))) Mostly good mix of melodic black metal & Gothenborg styled guitars despite that being so overdone in recent years, this actually works.
(((10))) Mid-paced, melodic death metalish, sluggish then lifts off a tad with the thrash.
