Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-05-27 
Crazy mid of thrashy grind and ultra-fast hardcore with an absurdist yet funny and sarcastic lyrical stance. No more of the usual :30 & under tunes – these are all rockin’ the fuck out songs that are fierce and crushing. The other plus is the addition of Kat (from doomers, Salome) who does a lot of the vocals. A mix of Cryptic Slaughter, Kylesa & Pig Destroyer (natch, since PD’s Scott Hull’s ANb’s guitarist). Mostly awesome.

(((((1))))) Fast & raging with a killer guitar riffs, bass.
(((((2))))) Amazing dual vocals, divebombers, nice “controlled chaos” structure.
((((3))))) TOO MANY FCCS-AVOID!
((((((4)))))) (FCC “cunts” sung once). Ultra-fast, ultra-thrashy, and anhillating screamed out vocals from Kat.
(((((5))))) Way big on the low end. Late 80’s crossover/ultra-core thing like Cryptic Slaughter mixed with Kylesa. More awesome dual vocals.
((((6)))) (FCC “Fucking” sung once). Rhythmic, riffy, more screamy vocals, then blinding blast beats. “South of Heaven” Slayer-ish breakdown.
((((7))))) (FCCs” suckin’ dick”, “shit” sung twice) Extremely riffy & straight up rockin’ with a drum solo (!?). Very funny lyrics.
(((((8))))) Mid-pace jud-judding, heavy & jagged.
Bonus points for the B-hole Surfers, VoiVod & Deicide refs).
((((9)))) Bassy, percussive & thudding, screamy vs. growly vocals. Slow fade out @ the end.
(((10))) (FCC “fucking” and “fucks” sung once). Mid-paced, shouted & guttural vocals.
(((11))) TOO MANY FCCs – AVOID!
((((12)))) (FCC’s – “Fuck” twice that’s audible) Fast & ripping grind & with ton of bass and clanging cymbals.
(((((13))))) (FCC “fuckin’” “fuck” twice) Slaytanic grind madness. Crazy lyrics that read like they’re written by a Miami druglord. Fades out @ the end.
