Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-11-22 
One man British nutter doing blown out D.I.Y. Black Metal with a super fuzzy guitar and a well-programmed drum machine. Much in the filthy vein of local cult goat worshippers, Von and Canadian bestial blur blasters, Blasphemy. Solitary repetition & lyrical minimalism is the game here but there’s a certain oddness that compels you to follow the command of their cloven hoofs. That and you can’t knock titles like “Goat Coat” and “Tusk Toothed”. Also, Swine features a member from the totally crushing Hellhammer worship act, Salute.

((((((1))))) Trippy, slow mixed with very fast guitar tone with possessed goat vocals & minimal lyrics.
(((((2))))) Thrashin’ (but not “Thrash Metal”) rudimentary underground Black Metal sound in a mere 1:03
(((((3)))))) Amazing guitar tone with “satanic vacuum” vocals. Gets, oddly psych near the end.
(((((4)))) Slow bassy mellow interlude.
((((((5))))))) Raw, sputtering drum havin’, pure filth & e-viil!
(((((6))))) More of the same but trippy delayed guitar effects and some cool stop/starts.
((((((7)))))) Fast and grimm Black Metal with really rad echoing vocals then slows way down into a mellow, ethereal guitar bit.
((((((8)))))) Gnarly & teeth gnashing Black Fuckin’ Metal with the same crazy kind of vocalizations as Von.
