Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the upcoming release of “Brothers in Arms”, the new Sunstorm album, the second to feature lead vocalist Ronnie Romero (Rainbow, Lords of Black, The Ferrymen).
Romero’s debut album with Sunstorm, “Afterlife” was released in early 2021 and showcased a rejuvenation of Sunstorm’s previous musical formula, mixing Melodic Rock/AOR with more 70s oriented hard rock, ala Rainbow (for whom Romero is lead vocalist). That recipe is perfected on “Brothers in Arms” with new guitarist Luca Princiotta (Doro, Blaze) joining the lineup of Romero, bassist Nik Mazzucconi, drummer Michele Sanna, and keyboardist Alessandro Del Vecchio.
Prior to the writing and recording of 2021’s “Afterlife”, in discussions with producer and songwriter Alessandro Del Vecchio it was decided that moving the musical style of the next Sunstorm album to the more melodic AOR sound of the early records was what everyone wanted. Romero, with his powerful vocal style, was the ideal fit to deliver the goods for the music. “Afterlife”, the then new Sunstorm album, caught many in the melodic rock fanbase by surprise as it, for obvious reasons, arrived with a lot of history and expectations. But for his first foray into melodic hard rock territory, Romero delivered outstanding results on “Afterlife” and you are in for a treat on this new album which offers elements of the more melodic sound of Rainbow and Deep Purple mixed with the sound of Foreigner and Classic Melodic Rock.
After the warm reception to “Afterlife”, it was quickly decided that a follow-up was in order and thus in the latter half of 2021 and into early 2022, “Brothers in Arms” was crafted. For those who enjoyed the previous release, prepare for another sonic delight!
