June 12th brings another release from Frontiers Records. Magnus Karlsson’s Free Fall the third one under this moniker, is another evidence that Magnus‘ creative well seems endless. Just like the band’s other two releases, it features a long list of special guests on vocals: Ronnie Romero, Dino Jelusick, Noora Louhimo and many others help Magnus bring to life his view of metal music with a modern edge. Rounding out the lineup on the album is Anders Kollerfors on drums with mixing by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Primal Fear, Amaranthe, Pretty Maids).
Karlsson is well known as the mastermind behind several Frontiers productions, including the successful initial Allen/Lande trilogy and the recent spin-off album Allen/Olzon, as well as releases by Starbreaker (with Tony Harnell), Bob Catley, and Kiske/Somerville. In 2008, he joined German heavy metal icons Primal Fear and with them has toured the world and recorded several successful albums which charted in multiple countries around the globe.
The Free Fall project kicked off in 2013, and the bands previous efforts were warmly received by the numerous fans of the Swedish mastermind. The new album, entitled “We Are The Night”, further expands an already broad musical palette, and sounds surprisingly cohesive, despite the many different singers involved in the recording.
Sonic Perspectives collaborator Rodrigo Altaf spent some time with Magnus discussing the genesis of the new album, the selection process for the singers, the different recording techniques and much more.
