Norwegian Black Metal act Ragnarok delivered everything that style demanded, including corpse paint and heavy anti-Christian lyrics boasting an old-school feel much in the likes of Marduk and Dark Funeral. Under the first membership of Thyme (vocals), Øyvind Trindborg (a.k.a. Rym; guitar), Jerv (bass) and John Thomas Bratland(a.k.a. Jontho; drums), they would release their debut Nattferd in 1995. Arising Realm (1997) saw Shagrath arrive on keyboards but was gone again for the follow-up Diabolical Age (2000). Their latest effort, In Nomine Satanas (2002), withLord Arcamous taking over vocals from Tyme, boasted solid production and professionalism considered above average for the style. Hoest would take over vocals thereafter.
