Ram - Under The Scythe

Under The Scythe
by Jonathan Maphet at 14 April 2011, 12:40 AM

Under the Scytheby RAM is a very short single containing two songs. So what is the verdict?  I love it. This is a great obscure band release. They will never gain gold or platinum status but this is pure underground genius here. I hear some KING DIAMOND and some old 70’s JUDAS PRIEST. Both songs are upbeat and retro sounding, in a good way. I really wish there was more to review. Their label is awesome. Check out the band lists on High Roller Records. There are some seriously great underground/obscure bands on it. The bands are mostly power metal. This is a great discovery for me. I eat this stuff up and am going to be clicking on band logos all night long.

The two songs appear to be power metal, and when the full length CD comes out, I am all over it. Finding hidden gems like this is always fantastic. You never know when it’s going to happen when you’re sent hundreds of bands, many of them totally unheard of names. This is one of those cases where it turns out to be a positive. I cheated and went to their Myspace page so I could hear more than just two songs and I was rewarded with more KING DIAMOND like vocals and some very good up tempo drum beats. The vocalist also growls a little, and he does a very good job of it. It’s not overkill like so many bands with dirty vocals. This is heavy and it really rocks. Check out their Myspace page.

This is an independent release, so don’t expect perfect production values because you’re not going to get it, but it is excellent for what it is. RAM is a very pleasant surprise.
