10th anniversary show in Gothenburg announced!
Swedish heavy metal act RAM have just recently shot a video for the song “I Am The End” from their latest release, “Death.” Metal Blade Records has partnered with Revolver Magazine to premiere the video in North America.
“I Am The End” was directed by Martin Högdal, edited by Leonard Palmestål and written by Oscar Carlquist – the same team that worked on the “Flame Of The Tyrants” video. The song was written by Harry Granroth and Oscar Carlquist.
Oscar Carlquist comments on the video: “The ‘I Am The End’ video shows a completely different side of the cinematic vision of RAM than what we created in the ‘Flame Of The Tyrants’ video. This video displays a lot of esoteric aspects, and has many layers of symbolism that will not be seen at once. We thank everybody involved for their outstanding dedication to making flesh out of our disturbed visions.”
Fans can order “Death” and watch the video for “Flames Of The Tyrants” at metalblade.com/ram.
In other news Daniel Johansson – guitarist and one of the founding members – has decided to leave the band. The departure was amicable and a replacement for Daniel has already been found. RAM are very happy and proud to welcome former RAM session guitarist Martin Jonsson as a fulltime member.
2013 marks the 10 year anniversary since RAM released their first release: the Sudden Impact EP. This will be celebrated on Friday, the 13th of September. A concert has been booked in Gothenburg at the venue Sticky Fingers (Top Floor). The show will also feature special guests PORTRAIT and TRIAL. RAM‘s performance will be filmed.
The Sudden Impact EP will be rereleased on vinyl only and in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies through Gothenburg based label Lake Of Fire productions. The EP will be released at the 10th anniversary concert.

“It’s an “imagine Ozzy and George Lynch joined Exodus” pastiche” Decibel Magazine
“Despite their Swedish origin, RAM bubbles over with the kind of British riffing and toe-tapping gallop pacing that so is so inseparable from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.” BloodyGoodHorror.com
“as muscular and dynamic as it is epic and catchy” Kerrang Magazine
“The album shines for its riffs. Songs like “Comes from the Mouth Beyond” and “Release me” feature a flawless lead guitar; although it’s definitely classic heavy metal, it’s played in a much more aggressive manner, making it something akin to Saxon on a cocaine binge.” MetalSucks.net
