The opening verse of this tune comes out all patriotic and patriotism has no place on this site. We're not interested if you think God loves your country!
But then by the time the chorus comes in on a wave, it is almost transcendental. Lyrically the singer brings the song back and we learn the opening gambit is almost tongue in cheek and self effacing. Asgard is going to blow a hole in the sky and reach out into the stars.
We previously reviewed Spiritualized and it is coincidental that we stumbled on this track on our feed as it is music the spacemen would be probably very proud of and may have inspired in this bunch. I have found another single from the "band" (solo artist) and it is similarly inspired by another British genre but if you chart a projection, musically Asgard Raven sound promising.

This song is definitely not to be confused with Ronan Keating’s 2000 hit ‘Life is a Rollercoaster’ . Far from the soft tempo pop tune , former military man, Asgard Raven offers his second single ‘Rollercoaster’ which will be release Friday 28th January 2022.
The distorted guitar, compliments the the regimental indie rock tempo that brings a very nostalgic 90s early Oasis feel .
The Message of the song is delivered in beautiful subtle vocals that deliverer a touch of sunshine when the clouds are covering the sky.

Rollercoaster Review by David Weddle
Asgard Raven has made a triumphant return with the brand new second single "Rollercoaster".
Starting off with a chilled acoustic guitar, Asgard Raven talks about the ups and downs of modern living. Inspirational, emotive lyrics which are ultimately promoting a positive outlook even when times are tough, something that most people can identify with.
Packed full of stunning vocal harmonies with a solid beat throughout, the track is reminiscent of Oasis during their "Definitely Maybe" days but still feels fresh and new.
Asgard Raven treats the listener to a glorious guitar solo three-quarters of the way through, which is a real treat. The production is first class, you can tell that a lot of time and effort has gone into creating the best possible sound.
The track is definitely radio ready and would be a great addition to any playlist.
This is Asgard Raven's second single, and they seem to be going from strength to strength in both the songwriting and musical composition.
It is a great track and it is available to stream right now wherever you stream your music. Why not treat yourself to a little extra and give Asgard Raven's debut single a listen as well? You won't be disappointed.

Asgard Raven is not yet a household name. However, this UK indie-rock artist could become that upcoming artist that you heard before anybody else.
His upcoming release is due out on the 28th January and has all the potential to be his best song yet. The track, “Rollercoaster”, explores a lot of themes we were all likely experiencing as we entered the new year. Getting what you want from life, no matter the reasons to not bother or all the excuses you may face. Life’s a Rollercoaster and channelling your inner Keating, “you’ve just got to ride it”.
However, Boyzone is not the influence of this song. Immediately, when listening to this track, you can see the influence Oasis manager Alan McGee had on Raven’s music when mentoring him on this project. The Brit-pop, 90s guitar twang is the driver of this track and it sounds superb. You’re then greeted by some gritty, reverb beach vocals that ring out clearly and complement the instrumentation perfectly. This is polished, a man who knows his sound and how to get the most out of it.
The lyrics are great. They’re real and will speak out to many, no matter your background or situation. It’s a rallying cry from a man pushing you to be your best. And all of this brilliantness is teamed with an amazing quality of production, highlighted perfectly in the instrumental break which screams early Oasis.
The track drops in 28th January and I implore you to get listening to it on that Friday, it’s a cracker. In the mean time, make sure to find Asgard Raven on your socials and check out his debut single “Until Another Day” to get a flavour of what’s to come!

Until Another Day review by David Weddle
The tragic loss of a close friend in Afghanistan has inspired Asgard Raven to pen a stunning rock track 'Until Another Day'.
The song deals with unexpected grief beautifully, capturing the thoughts and emotions experienced during the hardest of moments.
Don't be fooled into thinking this is just a sad song all about loss, it is also a tribute to good times remembered which is reflected well in the upbeat tempo of the track.
'Until Another Day' is a stark warning to not take life for granted. Embrace what you have while you have it.
A great track musically and lyrically and one that will be getting played again and again.
