Ronnie Abeille is a singer and composer who has spent the past few years dotting the globe, playing shows and recording tracks all over Europe and beyond. The rocker spent most of the 2010’s with his band Dancing Scrap. Though they started in Italy it did not take long for the group to find it’s way to the UK. From there they toured throughout Northern Europe. From 2013 to 2017 they played the Netherlands, Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary.
In 2018 Ronnie decided to shut the show down and devote himself full time to his solo work. He debuted last year with the single “Streets of Poison.” That song was a bit of experimental Electro Alternative Rock, mixing a downtempo groove with piano, synths and a touch of Metal. On his new single “Ragnarok,” Ronnie Abeille picks up the tempo and cranks the volume to eleven.
Clocking in at just over two minutes, the track packs a lot of power into a short song. The tune is like a sonic punch in the face, that opens with the sounds of an actual punch in the face. From there the track kicks into a frenetic riff composed of layered guitars, strings and (apparently) accordion. But make no mistake, this is no polka. In short order the song shifts to a Suicidal Tendencies-style hardcore power chord progression, and then quickly again into a Punk howl.
Lyrically the track takes Capitalism to task, or more specifically the “bastards” running the system. Ronnie is joined by Kory Clarke, frontman of the American alternative rock band Warrior Soul. As the self-described “weird punk tune” progresses, the duo advocate striking the bastards down. Named for the Norse mythology version of Armageddon, this is music to kick ass to.
