New RAM track online at Thursday 19th February, 2009 by HG

Our new album "Lightbringer" is mastered and ready for
release. To celebrate this we have decided to make the
track "Awakening the Chimaera" available for all you manic
Old school headbangers here on our Myspace profile.
The track features guest vocals of E from blackest metal band
Watain. The album was mastered at Studio Bohus Mastering by
Dragan Tanaskovic.

New album update at Saturday 7th February, 2009 by HG

Compared to 'Forced Entry' the 'Lightbringer' album is a
step in manydirections for us. Forced Entry was a very straight
forward (in RAM terms) Heavy Metal album, Lightbringer is more
concept orientated and it displays an array of different themes
that are noticeable in songwriting, lyrics and throughout the production.

Including a horror mantra that features Mexican poet Adelaida Caballero
performing one of her profound, surrealistic and magick poems, this album
offers hard and heavy but quite unorthodox Heavy Metal songs that feature
many twists and different parts, along with melancholic and very melodic
pieces. E from the infamous Black Metal band Watain is featured on one
track which is A Modern Heavy Black Metal track and he lays down some
Sinister vocals indeed. Something as unusual as a metal horror opera,
'The Elixir' features a macabre tale in vein of Edgar Allan Poes work.
Our most epic track to date and also the longest RAM song ever recorded
is a song about the Battle at Suomussalmi in 1939 during the Finnish winter war.


1. Crushing the dwarf of ignorance
2. Lightbringer
3. In Victory
4. Awakening the Chimaera
5. Ghost Pilot (MI II)
6. Suomussalmi (the few of iron)
7. Blood God
8. Titan
9. The Elixir
10. Prelude to Death

New Album update. at Wednesday 27th July, 2005 by oscar
We are hard at work with our first full length release, everything has been recorded and we have just begun the mixing process. Just as the E.P this album is being produced by Leif Larsson and RAM. The album was recorded at "Black Path" studios and will be mixed in Gothenburg based "Brewhouse" Studios.

The new album will show a new dimension of RAM's music since it is faster, heavier, harder, more melodic, more progressive and simpler all at the same time. Where the E.P was "Uncompromising Heavy Metal" the new album displays a more personal sound.

The production is a perfect blend between the classic early eighties European Heavy Metal sound and a more contemporary "High Tech" metal sound, still the Production captues the bands natrual sound and is far from overproduced.

Sudden Impact (rerecorded)
The Beast Within
Venom in my Veins
Machine Invaders (rerecorded)
Forced Entry
Sea of Skulls
Breaking Through
Infuriator (rerecorded)
Burning Scars

The album is sceduled for a fall 2005 release.
Through which channels the album will be released has not yet been decided, RAM are currently in negotiations with several possible partners.
