Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2010-07-25
Heavy Psych/Doom Metal trio from Atlanta. Think Om and maybe a little of Minsk, Japanese psych + a wee bit of sludge like Fistula. Nothing totally mindblowing but some good moments.

((((1)))) Laid back, riffy, smoky, Doomish.
(((((2))))) Big riffs and drums, lots of wah-wah pedal.
((((3)))) Huge sound, all instruments come through really well. Odd mix of 90s hard rock/grungey stuff, heavy psych and Doom.
(((((4))))) Straight up, burning Heavy Doom Rock with frets on fire and all that. Reminds me of a more “accessible” version of Fistula.
((((5)))) Tons of overlaid, noisy psych guitar shooting into the stratosphere. Not far from the heavier side of Japanese psych (Acid Mother’s, High Rise)
(((6))) Total OM worship, singular slow psych-doom tempo with pinging cymbals (exactly like OM!)
((((7)))) Spiraling tempo, nice riffage, harsh vocals like an almost Black Metal-ish High On Fire.
(((8))) Mellow, spacious interlude/intro to the next track…
(((((9))))) Spacey, slow build, overlaid guitars. Eventually goes into interstellar Doomerdrive. Sounds like it would be killer live.
