They are often called the "Portuguese Metallica". One feature they were always capable of maintaining throughout their albums is originality. The peak of their career was undeniably in 1998/99, with the album "EDR" and the following promotional tour. In 2003, they released their first self-produced record, entitled "Nude". Ramp is one of the most influential metal bands in Portugal. They have played on all main rock events in Portugal, namely 3 appearances on the summer rock festival Super Bock Super Rock, in Lisbon.
