The Ferryman is the new power metal trio featuring guitarist Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall) and vocalist Ronnie Romero (Lords Of Black, Rainbow) and drummer Mike Terrana (Rage, Axel Rudi Pell). The musical vibe served up by the trio is a cocktail of power progressive metal and hard rock where Ronnie Romero' s powerful vocals are well-matched by Magnus Karlsson and Mike Terrana amazing musicianship. Awesome vocals, powerful songs, great solos and complete songs that don't get boring by long solos, or change in the rhythm just for the sake of longer duration and filling in the song. Striking a perfect balance between power metal heaviness and melodic rock accessibility. It's heavy enough, but the melodies are so infectious that you'll either end end up playing air guitar or singing along (or both!) with every song. There are more than enough memorable songs on this album. If I had to choose my favorites, I'd go with "End Of The Road," "Fool You All", "Cry Wolf" and "The Story Ends". Safe to say, if your cup of tea is progressive power metal, this album definitely deliver the goods. A very impressive debut outing indeed that should appeal to just about anyone who is a fan of power metal genre. If you follow bands like Last Tribe, Helloween, Vanden Plas, Masterplan and the like, you'll want to check it out, what The Ferrymen bring to the table.
