RAM - The Throne Within

I found all the media frenzy around Ram’s previous album to be largely unfounded as their poor man’s monotonous take on Judas Priest’s brand of heavy metal, crossed with a little bit of how bands like Wolf and early Enforcer tend to interpret that very sound, hasn’t been much refined in two decades since the band’s conception.
 
Without being truly bad, Ram’s style is too basic, repetitive and lacks both the flair, as well as variety that made other bands beacons of the genre.
