Origin: [F. ramper to creep, OF., to climb; of German origin; cf. G. raffen to snatch, LG. & D. rapen. See Rap to snatch, and cf. Romp.]
Ramp is a Portuguese heavy metal band. They began their career in 1989. Their heavy metal is more similar to that which is played in America, rather than its European counterpart. 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.
