Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-06-06 
Modern, sort of techy grindcore from Switzerland with members of the band Knut. On the plus size the playing’s top notch and the songs are (mostly) conscise. The downside is there’s too many songs that are samey. Otherwise, a pretty album for what it is. Sorta like Misery Index or Brutal Truth mixed with Deicide (especially in the vocals). Nerd note: the band’s names after the giant elephants in L.o.t.R.

((((1))))) Cuts right to the chase with blast beats and big riffs, typical but passable guttural vox.
(((2))) No frills grind with cymbal crashes, short.
(((3))) Picks up where the last one left off, fast & blasting.
(((4))) Decent rat-a-rat drumming, a few grooves and bombast albeit a bit murky.
((((5)))) Complex riffing and a few cool tempo changes that fall near crustcore territory.
(((6))) Blast, blast, guttural, guttural. Rrorrrar.
((((7)))) Brutal Truth worship. Zig-zaggy riffs, screamy vocals.
(((8))) Blast, pummel, repeat.
((((9)))) Riffy & catchy, extreme hardcore-ish grind.
((10)) Pretty generic-ass grindcore.
((11)) Techy grindcore that starts with a “yee—haww!” Not that it helps.
(((12))) Riffy and sort of techy, complex drumming, boring vocals.
(((13))) Charged up grind, with decent riff breaks.
((14)) Sluggish pseudo grind and murky metalcore.
((15)) Blast, blast repeat.
((((16)))) Good riffs and very busy playing.
(((17))) Mid-pace to all out blasting.
((((18)))) Zig-zaggy riff and sputtering drums. Similar to Misery Index.
((19)) WAY too many stop/starts
(((20))) Good build up and breaks, very heavy & fast sound. Ends with pig grunts.
((21)) Typical grind not bad just the same thing they’ve done on #1-15
(((22)))) Midpaced build up and big sound.
((23))) More typical but passable grind.
((((24)))) Great guitar tone & chaotic blasting.
(((25))) High vs. low vocals, crash + blasts
(((26))) Decent modern grind with trudging intro.
((27)) Crappy Donald Duck screamy vocals and a few OK guitar parts
