Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-04-21 
Epic, traditional Heavy Metal with touches of Folk and Black Metal. This is the re-release of the Irish band’s first album and demo hence the recording quality sounding a bit washed out and raw. Similar to Candlemass, Slough Feg, mid-period Enslaved or even Druhkh. Overall, solid mostly solid stuff.

((((1)))) Strummy guitars, nice flowing bass, soaring mid-paced tempo and clean vocals in Gaelic.
((((2)))) Doomish, big sounding Blackish Epic Metal. Really good tune but the vocals are a tad too washed out in beginning.
(((3)))) Raspy vocals, stirring & strummy riffs, pretty good mix of both Folk, Doom & Black Metal.
((((4)))) Clean vocal intro, very traditional doom with some interest bass & keyboards.
((((5)))) Blackish doom with a mix of raspy and clean vocals. An aquirred taste but damn good when you let sink in.
(((6))) Sort spoken interlude with cymbal clanging.
((((7)))) Bassy, Black Metal with a very good 1996-1997ish sound, not far from Agalloch or Enslaved.
(((8))) Mid-paced Black Metal with screetchy vocal. Not bad but sort of samey.
((((9)))) Celtic Folk with tribal drumming. Nice stuff pretty close to neo-folk bands like Of The Wand and The Moon.
(((10))) Strange, emotive mix of Doom & Melodic Black Metal, decent structure and sound but also not enough that makes it stand on it’s own.
((((11)))) Raw Black Metal with a strong doom sensibility. Rudimentary but strong riffs and above par vocals (considering what they’re working with).
(((12))) Confusing gloomy Death Rock/Doom & Blackish Metal. Oddly sounds like a lesser Zeni Geva tune.
((((13)))) Very 90’s Death/Doom (think: Anathema, My Dying Bride) mixed with raw Black Metal like Burzum or Darkthrone.
(((14))) Standard but ok, mid-90’s Raw Black/Epic Metal.
