Is there another record label that loves to put together new projects as Frontiers Music? I don´t think so.
They must be sitting in their offices and dream about all kinds of constellations between various musicians, sometimes it works and in other moments, us fans just shake our heads and wonder what the hell were they thinking?
Thankfully, the project The Ferrymen did work out. That is if you´re a fan of bombastic heavy metal in the same vein as Dio and the Tony Martin-era of Black Sabbath.
Who are The Ferrymen then? It started with guitarist Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear) writing a set of new songs in 2016 and they ended up in singer Ronnie Romero´s inbox, who wanted to be involved in this record. Finally, drummer Mike Terrana (Rage) joined and did his part.
It´s no surprise that The Ferrymen sounds like a new Magnus Karlsson´s Free Fall album but with Lords of Black / Rainbow frontman Ronnie Romero´s input, making it a solid piece of work.
This trio won´t write music history with these 12 tracks but they don´t have to be ashamed either, songs like "End of the road", "Ferryman" and "Eyes on the sky" are good enough for me.
