To Mend The Oaken Heart

To Mend The Oaken Heart
(Neat Metal - 1998)

Ragnarok (U.K.) is a pagan black metal band from the Northeast of England. Their album To Mend The Oaken Heart has several spoken intros and medieval choirs which partly sound like the singers had a few drinks too much. Other opening passages sound like Skyclad. Then shouter De÷rth joins in and sounds like Martin Walkyier on speed! Or perhaps more like Donald Duck on speed?!?! Ragnarok (U.K.) present black metal, sometimes more a per­siflage then a serious band, but so it's funny...
