The Ferrymen

 
 
 This band is on fire!. Fantastic vocals mixed with superior musicianship. Each song is a master class in power and precision. This is power metal at it's zenith. Every song is powerful but "cry wolf" and " ferrymen ", and "The Darkest Hour" stand out as our favorites. Magnus' guitar work on this album is truly inspired.  On June 2nd, You must get this album and crank it loud!!!!!

THE FERRYMEN The Ferrymen - 
Frontiers Music s.r.l. Release: 2 June 2017
Tracklisting: End Of The Road; Ferryman; Fool You All; Still Standing Up; Cry Wolf; One Heart; The Darkest Hour; How The Story Ends; Enter Your Dream; Eyes On The Sky; Eternal Night; Welcome To My Show.
Guitarist Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall) and vocalist Ronnie Romero (Lords Of Black, Rainbow) have joined forces, together with drummer Mike Terrana (Rage, Axel Rudi Pell, and more), in a brand new project dubbed The Ferrymen. 
The songs were written by Karlsson in Sweden during the summer of 2016. Once Romero was sent the music via their main bands' shared label home Frontiers, he immediately wanted to be part of the project. Terrana was the last piece of the puzzle and he recorded his drums in Italy, where he currently resides. The resulting album is a shot of adrenaline for all lovers of melodic metal! Musically, you can expect maximum melodic metal fusing the songwriting and epic structures of the great ALLEN/LANDE records (for which Magnus Karlsson was the main architect of the first three widely praised releases) with the Ronnie James Dio-esque vocal approach of Romero. (Let's not forget that Romero was hand-picked by Deep Purple and Rainbow's legendary guitarist Richie Blackmore to be the lead vocalist for Rainbow's recent reunion shows, so the Dio comparison is more than accurate!)
With stunning artwork courtesy of Stan W. Decker and an outstanding mix courtesy of Simone Mularoni (of Italian prog metal masters DGM), THE FERRYMEN is an album which will take the metal world by storm in 2017!
