Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-06-28
Punky garage rawk from Italy. Nothing polished but nothing super-raw just 12 tunes with big guitars and a lotta attitude. Dig this if you like: Thee Headcoats, Gories, Troggs, and a whole lotta stuff on In The Red, Get Hip, Crypt labels.

(((((1))))) Fast, punkified garage rawk with blowin’ harmonica & screams. Nothing fancy just pure energy.
((((2)))) Simple shuffle beat/tempo and kinda fast 1966-era inspiration. Cool chord changes, too. Shows more than the usual 3 chord monte limitations of some garage bands.
((((3)))) Fast country twang via garage punk.
((((((4)))))) Wonderfully sloppy garage punk. Awesomeness. Catchy & lots of nice harmonies + “woooowwaahh” screams.
((((5)))) Doot-doot-doot-strum & bash. More harmonica, Definite points for that great guitar sound & chords.
((((6)))) (FCC “FUCKING” sung twice) Mid-tempo 1966ish rave-up with the slashin’ of 70’s punk.
((((((7)))))) Rabid but poppy & oddly twangy garage-punk with a great vocal build up & more screeamin’!
(((((8))))) Holy Headcoats, Batman! Big strummy stomper with plenty of attitude & a cool Continental accent.
(((9))) Basic, fast punky rocker with more harmonica.
((((10)))) Shuffle pattern chords, harmonica, “I need some luvin’ naaaw/I’m a mess” style garage rocker.
((((11)))) Fast chicken-pickin’ garage-cow-punk with some good bass & sloppy but totally apt vocals.
(((((12))))) More mid-60’s rave-up/stomp chords and snarlin’ vocals with a very “fuck off” attitude. Rad drum sound, too.
