THE RING picture

Power metal super group The Ring emerged from Stockholm, Sweeden in early 2004 and consists of three musicians ( Pontus, Jakob and Marcus) who started the band in order to remind themselves of why they started making music in the first place. This drive leads them as a band to combine heaviness found of Dio-era Black Sabbath, riffery of early Metallica, twin guitar lines of Judas Priest and then to work it all into a flowing concept album. Being Swedish, they also supplement Nordic harmonies that are sometimes reminiscent of folk music and old classical masters of Scandinavia (Grieg, Sibelius).


5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden gem from The Ring
I am glad that I found this little gem. Every song is amazing. If you are a fan of power-metal with story concept, I highly recommend this one. I own well over 2500 cd recordings of Metal music. I am a collector, so when I choose to buy music of a particular band, they have to truly engage me musically and artistically, and this band has all the right elements. Get it! before it goes completely out of print.

Traditional Heavy Metal with some tones of Power Metal. Everything is in place, the vocals are fine, and instruments are played nicely. Compositions are thankfully varied, exciting, and exhilarating. “Halls Of Doom” carries on his some Black Sabbath influences, “Voices Of The Fallen Kings” and “In The Beginning” are worth mentioning also. This trio sure has managed to create a Cd filled with some good tunes and melodies, also filed with punch and aggression from time to time.
