Ram – On Wings Of No Return: A Video Breakdown
Remember when things used to happen in music videos? Remember when those things were entertaining. Swedish heavy metal band Ram remembers. Ram remembers a time before 360 degree visualizers and lyric videos. Ram remembers a time before playing in an empty warehouse or whatever this is was good enough for a video. Don’t believe me? Watch for yourselves.
