On this episode I am joined by the multi-talented Scottish musician Bryan Ramage, of the Progressive Metal band Ramage Inc 🤘
Bryan describes himself first and foremost as a producer, working out of his purpose built studio, recording, mixing & mastering everything himself. As well as being phenomenally skilled in this department, Bryan is also an exceptional vocalist, guitarist & songwriter.
The band, Ramage Inc, initially began as a solo project – releasing the debut album ‘Universe’ all the way back in 2004. After picking up some traction online, Bryan decided to form a proper line-up for the band, which has been definitive ever since – journeying through many albums, tours & notable appearances at the likes of ProgPower & Bloodstock Festival.
The latest addition to this immense catalogue is none other than the brand new studio album ‘Humanity Has Failed’ – in which the band have seriously kicked things up to a whole other level of dark, sophisticated & epic. Absolutely not to be missed by fans of Devin Townsend – who’s pronounced influence blends with tones of alt-rock, as well as influences such as Soundgarden & Gojira. It’s quite the sonic cocktail indeed!
Dealing with themes of Misanthropy, fueled by the cathartic purging of dark energy during the pandemic, Humanity Has Failed is a hard hitting record that will take you to the depths. But it is not without hope, & the duality makes for a truly special listening experience.
Check it out, alongside this podcast of course, and let us know what you think 🙂
