Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-06-28 
Very big sounding doomish, psychedelic and occasionally even proggy metal with tribal beats and very expansive, spacious songs. Features Sanford Parker of Nachtmystium, Buried at Sea (and producer of Pelican, Samothrace, etc). In the vein of Neurosis, and even Big Business in the vocals. Overall, fantastic stuff.

((((1)))) Big sound that takes off right away. Lots of percussion, interesting riffing and other layers.
(((((2)))))) Killer! Epic, patient and moody psych rock & metal. Consistent, simple & catchy riffy. Some cool proggy synth parts in the mix as well.
((((((3)))))) Slow, winding melodic doomish rock/metal. Great vocals & guitar tone plus a little more of the prog synths.
((((4)))) Slow, bassy, rumbling, laid back but still good.
(((((5))))) Layered, sort of spacey doom metal with a lot of focus on riffs and tribal drumming. Great build up to the chorus. Long acoustic break into psych drift.
(((6))) Bassy, shouted/resonating vocals. Strange build up with almost industrial sound then pulls back again. Definitely the weirdest song on here.
(((((7))))) Moody ‘post-rock’-ish drift, tribal percussion, distant shouted vocals. Builds into a nice rockin’ tune albeit hugely indebted to Neurosis.
(((((((8)))))) Nice Swans/Joy Division-like intro and slow glistening guitars into more modern, winding + heavy doom. Awesome!
