Swedish metal troupe Ram returns with their third studio album DEATH, a 10-track traditional metal offering that celebrates the bombastic wares from the early days of heavy metal. Complete with high registered screams, galloping riffs, and thunderous rhythms, this unit pays proper homage to Mercyful Fate (“…Comes From the Mouth Beyond”), Iced Earth (“Defiant”), and Savatage (“Hypnos”) with a well-rounded take on the classic sounds of 30 years ago (“Release Me”). Retro without sounding overtly dated or out of touch. Ram delivers a solid heavy metal album full of the histrionics and drama that old school enthusiasts should have little problem enjoying. -Mike SOS
