The Ferrymen - A New Evil

Recommended Posts

From Frontiers:

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of The Ferrymen's sophomore album entitled “A New Evil”! 

The Ferrymen released their debut album in June 2017 and took fans of the European melodic metal sound by surprise as they seemingly came out of nowhere. With songwriting and fretwork handled by ace Swedish guitarist Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall), the awesome vocals of singer Ronnie Romero (Rainbow, CoreLeoni), and drummer Mike Terrana (Axel Rudi Pell, Tarja, Rage) bringing the heavy metal thunder, the band quickly found their home in the hearts of fans of the classic DIO sound combined with heavier, updated songwriting textures and arrangements. 

Musically, fans can expect in "A New Evil" a very heavy, melodic metal album fusing the songwriting and epic structures of the widely praised ALLEN/LANDE records (guitarist Magnus Karlsson was the main architect of the first three critically acclaimed releases) with the powerful vocal approach of Romero (let's not forget that Romero was hand-picked by legendary Deep Purple and Rainbow guitarist Ritchie Blackmore to be the lead vocalist for Rainbow's recent reunion shows). True heavy metal fans are of course quite familiar with the well regarded Terrana and what his drumming skill set brings to the table on a heavy metal album of this nature. And what metal album would be complete without some stunning artwork? Renowned artist Stan W. Decker's album cover rounds out this colossal heavy metal offering.

""A New Evil" is a bit heavier and more progressive,” says Magnus Karlsson. "I’m always learning and try to improve my songs and productions each time out. Working with Ronnie and Mike is a such a great experience. I can concentrate on the writing and whatever I will come up with I know they will nail it! This time Jacob Hansen (Pretty Maids, Volbeat, etc.) did the mix and it works really well with the heavy style."

“I think it's a great album and people are gonna love it as they did with the first one,” adds Romero. “Everybody knows Magnus' skills to write great music, so it’s really easy to like every song on the album. This time was maybe even easier to work together because is the second album and we know each other better, he knew how to get my best performances, so I’m very proud about my work and grateful to have Magnus working side by side with me.”

"I have a few favorites like 'Don’t Stand In My Way', 'Bring Me Home', And 'A New Evil'. But a very special song for me is 'No Matter How Hard We Fall'. When you hear Ronnie in that chorus you will get goosebumps,” continues Magnus. Ronnie’s favorite is “'Bring Me Home', but I’m really looking forward to when people can hear the whole album because I'm sure they are gonna love every second of music on it!” 

"A New Evil" will be a shot of adrenaline for all lovers of melodic metal!

Not earth-shattering as far as innovation, but the album is very solid musically. A good listen.

Yep, pretty much agree completely. It's 100%, to each exact lyric, melody and note, what you'd expect to hear before you spin it - but it's solid stuff. Just don't expect anything you're not expecting when you spin it. ;)

And they don't even bother to cover the Chris De Burgh hit "Don't Pay The Ferryman".

    • I considered Metal T's joke about Hillary, not women. That's the problem. If I make a joke or comment about a particular woman who happens to be an arsehole, then I'm labeled sexist. If I make a joke or comment about a particular African/Asian or someone else from not my culture that happens to be an arsehole, then I'm labeled racist. The same with homosexuals/homophobia. Just because I think one particular person is an arsehole, doesn’t mean I'm any of those things (which I'm not).  Also, the thing about political correctness that has always given me the shits is that it seem to be okay to be racist/sexist, etc as long as you don't let it show. Being politically correct doesn’t mean that you or your organization is not racist, it just means that you hide it. It's a bullshit, token, meaningless philosophy. 
    • It's gonna be hard to enforce this curfew if it's still around when "daylight savings" starts. Hope you and yours are well and safe BTW mate.
    • Yeah, I'm all good mate. I hope you're keeping safe. We're still at 3 up here but all wearing masks of course. I don't mind the masks. Anything to hide my rough head is a good thing. It might just enhance my chances with the ladies. 😆
    • We are able to carry on our business. Fortunately we supply businesses that are allowed to operate under the restrictions (we supply people who do online retail sales) But it was a grey area last night and for a while I thought that we were not able to operate. during that time I was pretty pissed, thinking we had to shut down for 6 weeks. Income gone, don't qualify for any government assistance. fortunately it turned out ok for me, but for a brief while I got a really good understanding at the hurt and anger out there.
    • Good morning Darky, what level you fall under 3 or 4 ? Hoping you and Crue surviving The store you connecting  me at, has had a few good weeks, it's only falling off the past week. And recycle store has been  open right through/ Been worried jumping on train to go down there, you never know what other passengers are carrying

    • Strange that being a UK band we can't preorder the cd yet but overseas can now? Anywho this is pretty good and i'm waiting to preorder the disc and help support these guys.
    • No-one is offended. But if you are so tolerant, surely you must accept that people can call out things they don't agree with?  It's everyone's absolute freedom to make any kind of joke they want, but then it must also be everyone's absolute freedom to speak against it?
    • I did not call him a misogynist. I said the joke was, and I do believe that one can tell such jokes without being one. It's perfectly possible to slip up and tell a joke and not consider what roots it might have. I'm no stranger to putting my foot in it myself from time to time.  That said, I'll keep out if these threads from now on and stick to the music part. It's clear that folks are pretty entrenched in their stands (I'm no different in this case) and it will only be one endless circular discussion where no-one moves an inches. Pointless.  Edit: I don't believe I owe him anything as I don't think I did what you claim.
