RAM was created in 1999 by Harry Granroth, who wanted to form a real, true heavy metal band; he was sick of the misinterpretation of metal that ruled the scene at the time, and had a pile of material that he wanted to bring to life. He soon found Daniel Johansson, a young but experienced and very talented guitar player who wielded a traditional metal guitar style. The two started working on some of Harry’s earlier material and began to write new songs. After a long and tiresome search, Harry then found Oscar Carlquist; a powerful heavy metal vocalist with a mutual hatred for the current metal scene. Oscar quickly became involved in the song-writing process and crafted interesting lyrics to accompany the music. The backbone of RAM was formed. Oscar brought in drummer Morgan Pettersson, one of the few drummers left who still played the 70/80’s hard and heavy drumming style. They then recruited the legendary Leif Larsson, an icon in Gothenburg metal as he had previously been a member of Frozen Eyes.
In the spring of 2017, RAM entered the studio once again to record their 5th full-length studio album Rod. This album is the first RAMalbum to feature a concept story consisting of 6 songs that account for the entire B side of the LP. RAM are confident that once again the reviews will be through the roof and look forward to conquering new territories and fans while on yet another crusade of HEAVY METAL TYRANNY!
