Company: Metal Blade

RAM are essentially like those classic bands like Oz, Hexx, Killers and other denim and leather ilk that propped up the 80s metal underground but got very little recognition for it. 'Rod' is another resume showcase of vibrant, speedy, well-executed traditional metal. It's the band's fifth full-length to date, backed once again by the iconic Metal Blade Records. Pure, blazing heavy metal taught by the ministry of Judas Priest...why aren't they on the tip of everyone's tongue?
