Re: THE FERRYMEN - The Ferrymen (Romero, Karlsson, Terrana)

I don't really get why everyone is so hot for Ronnie's voice, but he's ok, and the song is pretty darn good. They come out the same day, so I'm going to wager on this winding up being better than Jorn's new album. Dude, you crack me up. You seriously put an effort in hating everything... That being...

I still hold Nothingface as their best by a huge margin. Prog, innovative and heavy. It's got everything. KT was getting there but they got it perfectly on NF.

Another gem Guillaume pushed to me. This is a melodic power metal band with an awesome singer. Closest comparison would be Vision Divine with an excellent singer as well. He's lower pitched than Luppi and has more grit. For those who know their AOR stuff, he's the singer for Work of Art. It can be q...
