Whilst the exact origin of this figure is yet to be established from online sleuthing, those forays into the dark parts of the Internet did at least identify some previously unrecorded critiques of this album from various sources, so a timely moment perhaps to see what the world's underground metal fans made of this release back in the day.
We start in Italy, with a 2003 review by Hellvis in the online Shapeless Zine:
"Ravenclaw was born in 2002 with the aim of creating a kind of Viking music, totally innovative for the underground. Not always does the ambition correspond to actual capabilities. In fact the style of Ravenclaw is not totally subjective but it is a set of various influences. But one feels that the band at least tries to do something non-trivial.
