RAGNELL
RAGNELL
Consumed By The Eternal Darkness
(Satanath Records)
49:47min

"Consumed By The Eternal Darkness” is the debut album of this Mexican Death / Black trio RAGNELL. The band already released the EP ”Black Requiem" in 2013 on the Russian label Sathanath Records. This album is a first acquintance and even though it clocks only two minutes over the EP, it’s labelled as a full-length. That aside, the music is more relevant and could be described as a mix of BELPHEGOR, DARK FUNERAL and ABOMINATOR. Each track, as the comparison would suggest, is full of blasting rhythms and midtempo sections and slow but intense double bass breakdowns. In these parts, some THE CHASM crawls in. The band plays as tight as KRISIUN did on their older records and it’s done with full force and anger. Especially the drums show and play a key role. The riffs are not bad but nothing really special either. They are pretty typical for this kind of style and represent the Black Metal side of RAGNELL. The vocals shift between high screams and low growls and are ocassionally taken over by some spoken parts. Interesting addition. If you’re sick and tired of the progressive evolutions in Black Metal these days and worship the brutal approach that flourished some ten years ago, this one should fulfill your needs.
