Ram  


Swedish metal from Gothenburg often means melodic death, but here in Ram we have a fine traditional metal band that, with their 2009 album Lightbringer, solidly brings to mind the best aspects of the 80's metal scene while still retaining some freshness and originality. Influences are many, none so evident as the Mercyful Fate worship on "Awakening The Chimaera" (right down to the King Diamond inspired vocals), but for the most part Ram blend and incorporate their influences seemless without sounding like copycats. As metal marches on and explores new boundaries in the new millennium, it's good to hear that some bands keeping the old style in vogue.
