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

Postby Guillaume » Mon Mar 20, 2017 1:27 pm

THE FERRYMEN will release their s/t album later this year on Frontiers.

This is a project featuring Magnus Karlsson (Free Fall, Primal Fear, Allen/Lande, Last Tribe...), Ronnie Romero (Lords Of Black, Rainbow) and Mike Terrana (ex-Rage, ex-Axel Rudi Pell...).

For those on Facebook, Frontiers released a teaser on their page today and it looks there is some great melodic metal coming!

Frontiers has done a lot of good work with the melodic rock and metal world, keeping people's careers going when the other labels thought them past their time, and finding good new talent. I'm not sure I'm as much a fan of all these projects they keep putting together, in this style. Sure, several of them have been great (Nordic Union!), and most of them are at least plenty good. My issue is that I can't help but think that a lot of these writers are getting burned out, and it isn't helping their main gig.

I can't even count how many albums Magnus has written at this point. It's hard for him to come up with something nowadays that doesn't sound like things he's already done. Erik Martensson is starting to get there too. I just heard he has yet another band/project putting out an album this year.

It's nice for us, since we get a lot of albums, but I wonder if what we get would be of even higher quality if all these guys were able to focus their attention on their main project, and only release the best material they come up with.

And if Karlsson is going to keep churning these things out, why can't they set up another album for Bob Catley? "Immortal" is one of the greatest melodic metal albums of the last decade.
