Primal Fear - Magnus Karlsson Releasing Debut Solo Album

Swedish guitarist Magnus Karlsson has unveiled that he is set to release his debut solo project Free Fall on June 11th in North America and June 14th in Europe through Frontiers Records. You can already sample four songs from the album below.

Magnus (Primal Fear, Last Tribe, Allen/Lande, The Codex) has now created his own album with a melodic metal and hard rock set of songs and invited both old and new friends to sing them. The list includes Russell Allen (Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob), Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear, Gamma Ray), Tony Harnell (TNT, Starbreaker), Mark Boals (Yngwie Malmsteen, The Codex), Rick Altzi (Masterplan, At Vance), Mike Andersson (Star One, Full Force), Rickard Bengtsson (Last Tribe), Herman Saming (A.C.T), David Readman (Pink Cream 69, Vodoo Circle). Rounding up the line-up on the album is Daniel Flores on drums.

Magnus Karlsson said: "I've had the honour to collaborate with some of the greatest singers and musicians in the world. Artists who have made my life richer with their magical music. On this album I got the chance to write tailor made songs for some of my absolute favourite singers. I was thinking, what would I really like to hear from this or that guy and then I wrote the songs. It's like if I'm missing a song with my favourite singer in my record collection, then I just make that song for him! I listen like a fan and I write like a fan well... I am a fan!"
