Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-10-09
Weird, cold wave, noise and new wave synth madness from the twisted mind of Wes Eisold formerly of the hardcore & punk bands American Nightmare and Give Up The Ghost and Some Girls.
Really mental stuff here focused on sexuality, horror and obsession all the while fitting for the throbbing and at times scathing music. Excellent stuff on almost every track.

((((((1)))))) Hugely distorted waves, bloopy & clashing beats with Thurston Moore-like vocals.
(((((2))))) Minimal, lo-fi cold wave with male & female vocals. Only 1:12.
((((((3))))) Very nice, oddly warm New Wave/synth rock with distant/blended in vocals. Melodic and distorted at the same time.
(((((4))))) Clangy beats, Joy Division/early New Order worship with only one direct line of vocals.
((((((5))))))) Instrumental with flapping electronics and a trippy electro-psych base. Not far from Legendary Pink Dots. Phenomeonal!
(((((((6))))))) Blippy, throbbin’ sounds with words of urban wasteland & personal dread from author Max G. Morton.
((((7)))) Dark ambient and fluttering noise cycles around while sketchy sex acts take place in the back warehouse.
((((((8))))) Minimal, spooky & spacey synth piece.
((((((9))))) Distant, chain smokin’ early electro-industrial cut with a bit of dancefloor elements. Throb’ yer Gristle!
((((((10))))) Big synth sound, warped but audbile vocals. Sounds like some old WaxTrax! label stuff from 20 years ago. Nice.
(((((11)))) More samples of sex and minimal, sad piano and some sonic resonation. Weird but interesting.
(((((12)))) Fuzzy, demented like Jesus & Mary Chain on a murder spree with Foetus’ TG Thrillwell.
((((13)))) Loud drum machine, tweaky noise mania and a bleak as fuck ghoul on vocals.
((14)) Suddenly it’s all electro-noise pop with blurts of raver noise and Jay Reatard vocals. Huh?
(((15))) Hard noise and confrontational but buried vocals.
(((16))) Basic beats, bloopy electronics, some dark no-wave & distorted vocals. Not too different than #1
(((17))) Layers of distored synth and some girl saying which colors she likes/hates.
(((18))) Sparse “wee-doo-do…” sounds then some girl’s voice looped saying: “Love you forever” in a warbly voice.
((((19)))) Distorted to hell vocals, bassy undertone and steamy blasts of noise. “Industrial pop” from the abyss?
((((((((20))))))) Awesome, minimal electronics as if from a lost Argento movie, with sparse female voice.
