Ragnarok comes from Norway and plays really raw black metal with a taste of melodic metal. There isn’t a bad song on the record (if you like black metal). The melodic parts are fresh.
Recorded in Abyss Studio, the album is produced and mixed by Tommy Tägtgren. He has done a splended job. The production is brilliant--heavy, fast, brutal, and dark, with very heavy guitars and drums.
All lyrics and music are written by the band together. Ragnarok wants to point out that no keyboards are used. The lyrics contain mostly evilness, darkness, satan and death. This is what black metal is all about.
I can’t choose between the songs—they're all good. This is a strong record straight through. I just hope that Ragnarok can follow this one up with an as strong and brutal an album as this one.
