Setting the tone for UNDER THE SKIN is melodic instrumental number BLOOD IS BURNING RED. Chanting accompanies ancestral percussion, gradually gaining momentum with a liberal dose of heavy guitar riff and indomitable lead guitar. The entire album is crafted with such precision and the placement of instrumental tracks adds depth and texture to the work as a whole, avoiding the common issue of being space fillers. The chanting, choir like background echos to previous album EARTH SHAKER. This dynamic, meticulously placed throughout the album feels very much like UNDER THE SKIN is born of its predecessor and forges onwards with the unique RAMAGE INC signature sound, taking some unexpected and exceptional turns along the way.
All too soon it's the end of the show with finale "Hush". The guys have put in a hell of a lot and I'm not sure how Joe maintains such a lengthy period of performing to the level he does. The evening has flown in and they have saved one last treat in terms of theatrics. I'm not going to spoil it for those of you still to see the guys (cause I know you are) but rest assured it's a site you will never forget!
