Swedish classic metallers Ram have announced that their new studio album, The Throne Within, will be released on September 13 via Metal Blade.

The band’s sixth full length marks their 20th anniversary – and will feature a guest appearance from Primordial vocalist Alan Averill.

Founding guitarist Harry Granroth said: “It is unmistakable Ram, there are fast songs, heavy songs, mid-tempo and slower tempos as well. There’s melody and there’s grit. The arrangements are recognizable but some may be unorthodox.”

Vocalist Oscar Carlquist added: “This is a monumental album for us, and I am certain for our fans.

“We have worked very hard to bring our sound, songwriting and playing to the next level without leaving our black path of heavy metal tyranny.”
