Spread the metal:



This past Saturday, February 27, 2021, Frontiers Music Srl celebrated the
25th anniversary of when label President & Head of A&R, Serafino Perugino
officially registered the company as a business 25 years ago, to the date.
On this momentous occasion, Perugino took some time to reflect on this huge
milestone in the label’s history and released a statement about the label’s
humble beginnings and bright future.

A few excerpts from the statement are below and the full statement can be
read on the label’s Facebook page HERE:

Perugino and the label staff wish to thank all the artists, past and
present, on the label, all the music fans, journalists, radio stations,
podcasts, publicists, radio pluggers, distribution partners, video
directors/creators, and everyone else along the way who has or still
currently does help us achieve our goals.

The first 25 years have been an incredible journey and we look forward to
the coming decades with great enthusiasm and determination to keep the rock
‘n roll flame burning.

“I believe I already shared a lot of thoughts when we celebrated the 20th
Anniversary of the label about how I started and the initial years of the
label spent in my father’s office amongst piles of cds that I was packing up
to ship to Italian records shops. Quite a few years, 25 to be exact, have
passed since then and looking back it seems like just a few weeks have gone
by since those early days. It was an incredible learning curve, an amazing
ride, and while I had been dreaming (and still do) for my entire life to be
able to work with my musical heroes, having actually been able to release
new music from so many amazing artists is something I really could not even
dare to imagine. When I look back, I can proudly say that we have created
some real rock history with so many great records released and combining the
amazing talents of the artists with our creativity. So many artists have
managed to release new music again and feel the passion and the fire of the
fans’ love. This is really difficult to believe for me, even now, and a sign
of the times thanks to the very hard work we have put into the creation of
this label to serve a faithful and passionate pool of fans like yourselves.”

“…in addition to the classic hard rock bands of the ’70s and ’80s, we
have been extremely active in scouting new talent, especially in the past
few years. In 2020, we launched the “Frontiers & Beyond” (
<> scouting
website which has so far brought four amazing new signings to the label. The
first one that will be released, on March 12th, is from Lebanese prog metal
masters TURBULENCE, followed later by False Memories, Kandia, and Devoid. In
the coming weeks, we will spread the word more for the website and encourage
a fresh round of submissions. We are bound and determined to find and work
with musicians who will make your head bang from now until eternity!”

“We are keeping hard at work to develop the exciting new talents that have
been signed in the past few years too. We are working with a lot of the
individual artists from these bands on additional projects for the label in
order to increase their exposure on a global level and in turn, increase the
visibility of their respective original bands, whom we fell in love with in
the first place.

To illustrate what I mean, here are a few that I am personally really
thrilled about!

*SKILLS (formerly known as Escape Machine), which we plan to release after
the summer, sees ELECTRIC MOB (Brazil) singer Renan Zonta paired with well
known, legendary American musicians Brad Gillis of Night Ranger, Billy
Sheehan of Mr. Big, and David Huff of Giant).

*CROWNE, which can rightfully be considered an epic supergroup from Sweden,
features Jona Tee (H.E.A.T.), Alex Strandell (Art Nation), John Leven
(Europe) and Christian Lindqvist (The Poodles).

*LAURENNE / LOUHIMO, the stunning alliance between Netta Laurenne
(Smackbound) and Noora Louhimo (Battle Beast).

*THE GRANDMASTER, which sees an alliance between the awesome singer Nando
Fernandes from Brazil with Jens Ludwig of Edguy.

*THE ERINYES, which will offer to you the stunning talents of vocalists
Justine Daaé, Mizuho Lin, and Nicoletta Rosellini all on the same album.

*And also the mind-blowing new group – name to be revealed later – with
Nathan James of Inglorious, Michael Sweet of Stryper, Joel Hoekstra and
Tommy Aldridge of Whitesnake, and Marco Mendoza.”

tears into the creation of the music you all love! Even if you don’t see
your name here, you are with us and we will do our absolute best to kick
asses with your music!”

“I wish to spend a few words also on the outstanding, I dare to say
exceptional, work that our publishing arm and songwriting team are putting
together. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Alessandro Del Vecchio
especially, we have managed to create an amazing team of superb writers who
can work and pen songs in so many different music styles. We represent now
more than 250 writers in every continent and we are proud to give them the
chance to present their amazing output to the worldwide markets with great
artists who perform and present their songs. This also prompts me to mention
and thank all the great producers we have worked, developed and launched
from (of course!) the ubiquitous Alessandro Del Vecchio to Aldo Lonobile,
Simone Mularoni, Magnus Karlsson’s Free Fall, Erik Martensson, Jona Tee,
Dennis Ward, Dan Rossall, Fabrizio Grossi & Soul Garage Experience, Mat
Sinner, Daniel Flores, Michael Palace, and more new guys to come to your
attention VERY soon!”

“Of course a special thanks goes to Gary Hughes and TEN who were the first
release from the label and are currently hard at work on not one, but TWO
new records to be released sometime in 2022. They have the FR CD 001
catalogue number and after all these years we still work together! What a

“And before finishing, hugs and thanks to the one and only Kip Winger,
Johnny Gioeli, Jim Peterik, Jack Blades, Neal Schon, Tracii Guns, Michael
Sweet, George Lynch and of course Jeff Scott Soto for bearing with us for 20
years this year!”

“So, after 25 years of serious, hard and passionate work, I can safely say
we managed to create a recognizable and fan-friendly brand for all rock
fans. We have been WITH everyone of you in the past decades and we look
forward to another 25 and more years of great rock to be enjoyed together!
Let’s ROCK together! You make this all possible!”
