Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-08-19
Violent & vicious THRASH METAL from Norway. Lots of sharp & shocks of speed with raspy but very audible & fast vocals. Vocalist/guitarist Sverre Dæhli has also guested with like-minded Norsk thrashers, Aura Noir & legends like Darkthrone. Dig this if you worship early German Thrash like Destruction, Kreator & Assassin or built an altar to Exodus’ “Bonded By Blood”

(((((1)))))) KILLER opening and full-on no frills pure THRASH METAL with wailing solos and tight riffs. (Extra points for the use of the word “relish”)
(((((2))))) Hammering, violent thrash and a raging speed with tons of awesome drums fills (not just a bunch of double bass), zig-zag riffs ‘ala Destruction with also a strong Exodus influence.
(((((((3))))))) Catchy and infectious with lots of breaks/fills while still going 500 mph. Amazing interplay between bass & guitar around 2:40.
(((((4))))) Nice & steady mid-paced rocker with some catchy vocals. Snake-y riffing ‘ala Motorhead and even VoiVod.
(((((((5))))))) Hornet’s nest riffin’ Nordic Thrash In-waysion! Extreme Destruction/Kreator/Exodus mix with another catchy, hard hitting chorus.
((((((6)))))) Whoa! Zig-zag & varied riffs with raw shouted vocals with solid mix of very early VoiVod & Destruction. Derivative? Yep but it’s still so fucking good no matter how ya slice it
