Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-06-06 
Blasting Swedish Death Metal with a very strong (and obvious) Carcass influence. In addition to musically (see Exhumed, Impaled, etc.) Carcass also helped the sales of medical dictionaries. How else can you explain titles such as “Exotoxic Septicity”? Like Carcass in the mid-point (say, Necroticism…). Although this also bring in elements of the early 90’s Death Metal (which they were sort of part of since their 1st demo is 1990) like Entombed & Dismember.

((((1)))) Fast & short “Symphonies”-Carcass-like blasting & ear annihilation.
(((((2))))) Kinda similar as #1 but good use of space before the chorus and old school Swedish DM riffs.
((((((3)))))) Awesome early 90’s Entombed-like, bassy rager. Catchy verses and bare bones style.
(((((4)))))) Guttural & raging no-b.s. Death Metal.
((((((5))))) Chunky riffs blasting off into another ear massacre.
((((((6))))) Swarming mass of guitars, massive blast beats and vulgar vocals.
(((((7))))) Just when you thought they couldn’t go fast. Nice change up with the dual vocals. Short.
((((((8))))) Thick & riffy as hell, rockin’ Death Metal then blasting.
((((((9))))))) Arrrrggggghhh! Awesome dual vocals & oxidized razor sharp riffs.
(((((10))))) Lunging, mid-paced DM, into brain thrashing fast. Love their direct simplicity they have which loses none of the intensity or heaviness.
((((11)))) Divebomber & blast. Not far from #1.
(((((12))))) Great opening riff & guitar sound. Mixing Swedish DM (Dismember & Entombed) + Carcass.
((((((((13)))))))) Another great opener “from corpse to ca-daverrrrr!” So awesome in SO many ways!
(((((14))))) Chuggin’, blastin’ DM with a lot of killer low end.
(((((15)))))) Rockin’ Death Metal with lots of rad bass sound and riff breaks. Ends with ghoulish screaming. ---Ragnar of Ravensfjord
