|Ragnar of Ravensfjord|
Killer Bay Area (SF) progressive & often epic Death/Thrash Metal with hints of traditional soloing and really nice melodic parts. Leila’s got a nice Chuck Schulidner-ish rasp to her voice. She along with the other guitarist, Ben Aguilar play a mean bunch of riffs. The drummer, Blood Eagle played in the cult SF Black Metal bands, Weakling & Sangre Amado. Sounds like a mix of later-era Death, Enslaved, Ludicra and a little Agalloch. Great stuff from the first song to the last. Amazing live band, too|
(((((1))))) Nice acoustic intro, with steady modern riffing and growling (but totally audible) vocals. Good use of rhythm. Similar ot “Individual Thought Patterns”-era Death.
(((((((2))))))) Drums & slow, winding chords, then rather heavy @ 1:35. Love the balance between the riffs & vocals. Melodic vocals the circle back & forth. Picks up the tempo at 4:41.
((((((3))))) Very nice & big dark strumming sound (‘ala Enslaved), dual melodic vocals, awesome growling with the classic elongated letters.
“A-nnngerrrr!” Killer solos.
(((((4))))) Mellow & somber folk, sounds like Amber Aslyum (go figure since Leila & guest Kris Force play in ‘em) violin & cello.
(((((((5)))))))) Yes! HEAVY ASS RIFF in yr face! A great balance between the heaviness and rockin’ with the melody & catchiness. Super riffy. Rad “South of Heaven” bit in the middle, too.
((((((6)))))) Voice centered intro, very pretty & melodic with big, spacious riffs underneath. Moves into a crazed Black/Death metal thing with a bunch of layers then back to acoustic.
((((((7))))))) Sparse, acoustic intro then chunky riffs hammering out a totally ‘bangin’ tune. Firece vocals that just kill with a mere word! Chuck Schulidner looks down from Metal Valhalla & approves.
