RAMCHAT sign with SLOVAK METAL ARMY, reveal first track from new album

Today,   Slovak Metal Army   announces the signing of pagan metallers  Ramchat . The band will release their highly anticipated new album,   Znelo lesom , through the label on November 13th worldwide.

Znelo lesom  will be the fourth album of this well-known, popular, and inventive band. The release party will take place at the second edition of the festival KrutoFest, alongside other folk / pagan metal bands.

Check out the brand-new video for the first single, titled "Mother Earth," from the upcoming album  HERE   at   Ramchat 's official YouTube channel. Cover and tracklisting for   Znelo lesom  to be announced shortly.


The pagan metal band   Ramchat   was formed by the well-known person Pavel “Hirax” Baričák in 2013. A new lineup was created from other metal veterans from their town of Martin. This unique band recorded their first cult EP titled   Bes   that contained the first two hits “Mor ho!” and “Posledný pohan” in the same year. The second EP was recorded in Shaark Studio, Czech Republic. The hits like “V ríši vlkov” and “Karpaty” rose up from this short album immediately. Both EPs were released on LP later on and CD digipack in 2014.

Their singer Lečo was replaced by Walki, a singer from the band Porfyria, and the lineup stays untouched from that moment.   Ramchat  drove itself into the Roland Grapow Studios and, under his care, recorded their first full-length album,   Atrana , in 2016 and which was released on vinyl LP and digipack CD formats. Such songs as “Perún hromom žehná nás,” “Sila ducha,” and “Tŕne bohov” became much favored immediately, and the band has been presenting and playing them alive.

Ramchat   put themselves into their so-famed pagan image and got started with playing live even more than before. Big festival invitations have increased as well as local shows that the band headlined.   Ramchat   released their second full-length album, titled   Nepočaria! , on vinyl through the label Metal Age Productions. The first part of the album was recorded at Roland Grapow Studios and the second one in cooperation with Martin Roženek at GM Studio in Czech Republic, 2017. A new cooperation with Prague BioTech mastering studio was established there. A great new video “Nepočaria!” was made to support this album worldwide, and also, new manager Pablox and engineer Michal joined the band to get it absolutely professional.

Ramchat   released their strictly limited EP titled   Jastrab   in winter 2018. This EP contains enthralling cover artwork and two incredible songs, and you can take them as foreshadowing of the upcoming album.   Ramchat   has given concerts at many festivals, pulled many Slovak-Czech club lines, played at Hellfest in France, and performed mini-tours in Russia and Poland. Their stage show is inimitable, full of dynamism and variety.

During the restrictions for the Covid-19 virus,   Ramchat  began recording a new studio album. It is named   Znelo lesom  and will be released by   Slovak Metal Army  on November 13th worldwide.
