Jarno Anttila suddenly ran out of bullets after serving 18 years in the ranks of the Impaled Nazarene -army. He started to dream of totally different kind of band. The year was 2010 Anno Domini and the first victims of his were drummer Janne Mannonen (also familiar from YUP) and Niko Karppinen (former hired session musician in Finnish band called Sentenced), who should be able to handle bass duties in the steering wheel of this Rolls Royce of instruments.
Obscure connections also provided obscure results in the search of the guitarist. Tommi Kanerva who had gained fame in numerous punk and hardcore-acts like Kostajat, Murheenlaakso and Vaasankatu SS. Mikko “Mojo” Ojala’s remarkable ability to generate growls beyond the grave combined with powerful clean vocals convinced the others that he was the right guy to take a spot as a frontman of the band. This gave birth to Rämlord, the band where old guys play old-school metal with modern additions.
If you happen to wander in the middle of the night at the graveyard hearing voices from the darkest pits of hell and hear groans of the lost souls… Oh yes! It’s Rämlord which with the certainty of over 2000 played gigs is ready to devastate your comprehension of everything safe and familiar or….normal.
