Frontiers Music has a well-deserved reputation for bringing together artists to collaborate on some great records. The release of the self-titled debut album from The Ferrymen on 2nd June provides further evidence that Serafino Perugino and the team at Frontiers know what they’re doing. The principle contributors in The Ferrymen are guitarist Magnus Karlsson from Primal Fear and vocalist Ronnie Romero from Lords of Black and Rainbow. I played the opening track “End of the Road” on the Friday NI Rocks Show uploaded on 27th April and "Ferryman" on the Show uploaded on 8th June.

 


 

 

 

 

Swedish guitarist Magnus Karlsson joined Primal Fear (who released a live album through Frontiers on 2nd June) in 2008 after working on many projects such as the Bob Catley (Magnum) solo album, Starbreaker and the first Allen/Lande albums. Projects since then include -

Chilean singer Ronnie Romero was picked by Ritchie Blackmore to be the new vocalist for Rainbow in 2015. Prior to that he had been one of the founding members of the band Lords of Black in 2014; releasing albums in 2014 and 2016. Karlsson and Romero are joined by drummer Mike Terrana on the album. The latter has played with bands such as Rage and Axel Rudi Pell.

About “NI Rocks Recommends”

The simple idea behind “NI Rocks Recommends” is to acknowledge and promote some of the great music being submitted to Rock Radio NI. I'll not be giving marks or ratings or analyzing the tracks in great detail; just telling you something about the artist and the album. It’s a personal recommendation to go check something out, not a traditional “review”!

My musical tastes cover most things rock; from the not too melodic to the not too heavy. The albums that I’ll be recommending are those that you’ll hear me playing tracks from on my shows on Rock Radio NI.
