Regarding the first single, “Gulag”, RAM adds: “‘Gulag’ has a definite old-school European Heavy Metal vibe to it. The song shines a light on the hypocrisy of collectivism, and takes a stand for the one who lives and thinks for one self, not for ideology or dogmas of the masses. As one can see in the lyric video for the song most members of RAM were raised during the golden age of home computers!”

RAM: ‘Svbversvm’ full-length from Swedish heavy metal loyalists streaming in full at Noisey

– October 27th, 2015 –

Record to see worldwide release this Friday via Metal Blade Records

“Dig Portrait? Love Natur? Stoked for Judas Priest‘s next tour? Do yourself a favor and stream Svbversvm in all its well-sharpened glory.”Noisey

Swedish heavy metal defenders (of the faith), RAM, will drop the molten fruits of their Svbversvm full-length upon the masses this Friday via Metal Blade Records. Brimming with fist-pumping hymns of death, post-apocalyptic dominance and total devastation through iron, RAM‘s fourth studio offering was self-produced at Black Path Studios, mixed at Welfare Sounds by Olle Bjork, Per Stalberg, and RAM and mastered by Daniel Johansson. As a special precursor to its release this week, today Noisey hurls forth Svbversvm in its anthemic entirety noting: “Each track on the nearly hour-long album is a master class in traditional heavy metal (dosed with just a snort of vintage speed) that promises to bang the head that does not bang, from ‘The Usurper’ (which liberates that combination of words from their Celtic Frost-forged chains to deliver a fist-pumping revenge anthem) to the sky-scraping falsetto vocals and wailing NWOBHM licks on the title track.”

Bang your heads in unison to the sounds of Svbversvm, courtesy of Noisey at: noisey.vice.com

Pre-order Svbversvm today at: metalblade.com/ram

In an advance 8/10 review of the record, Dead Rhetoric gushes, “Rare is the day where one hears an opening mid-tempo riff and marching sequence for ‘Holy Death’ that captivates in the same way as the iconic ‘Balls To The Wall’ did for Accept listeners in 1984, but RAM succeed in embedding another series of hooks and riffs through this arrangement stage ready for simultaneous axe swings or hip flexing. Other dark chord combinations summon early makings of Savatage and Sanctuary, such as opener ‘Return Of The Iron Tyrant’ and the slow churning triplet action meets brooding clean transitions for ‘Temples Of Void.’” The esteemed blog farther elaborates, “After Death‘s more ’70s Rainbow/Judas Priest slant, RAM come forward into US metal influences from the ’80s while still maintaining that finesse and melodic sensibility that is necessary for long term retention.” Of second single, “The Usurper,” Heavy Blog Is Heavy notes, RAM are keeping the dream alive for those clamoring for a modern take on the powerful ’80s metal scene that propelled legends Judas Priest, Dio, and Iron Maiden into the spotlight.” Adds Battle Healm, “From Oscar Carlquist’s screaming crescendo vocals to the heavy, raw twin guitar attack of Granroth and Martin Jonsson, RAM are well poised to bring about their reign of heavy metal tyranny! On this fourth album there is a definite step up in the composing, with some truly heavy and dark material giving a mystical and occult atmosphere to the ten majestic tracks herein, especially with that aforementioned crushing guitar sound made all the more prominent by the big but natural production.”

RAM present brand new video clip for “I Am The End”!

– July 15th, 2013 –

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. Click HERE to watch the new video now at revolvermag.com!

“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.

RAM live shows:
19/07/13 FI – Lieto – Hammer Open Air
13/09/13 SE – Gothenburg – 10th Anniversary Show
19/10/13 NL – Amstelveen – Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival

“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
