Since Ronnie Romero, who was born in Chile, was recruited by Ritchie Blackmore as Rainbow’s vocalist in 2015, his demand as a musician has soared. Remarkably so! Thankfully, he never lends his vocals to subpar recordings; they consistently range from good to exceptional. However, he does take on an abundance of projects. Furthermore, there’s never a guarantee that he will remain committed to a particular band or project. In 2020, he delivered a highly commendable performance on Vandenberg’s comeback album. Since then, he has departed from that band in favor of the Michael Schenker Group. Yet, even in this new venture, departure seems imminent.

Earlier this year, fans had the pleasure of experiencing his vocal talents on the debut album of Elegant Weapons, a new project led by Judas Priest’s guitarist Richie Faulkner. There’s a strong possibility that another vocalist will be sought for their second album, given Elegant Weapons’ likely limited touring schedule due to Faulkner’s obligations with Judas Priest. For fans, it’s challenging to invest emotionally in a band when the singer, often the focal point, is an unpredictable factor.

Therefore, it’s reassuring to observe that Ronnie Romero has embarked on a solo career. After all, one can’t simply leave a band that bears their own name. While he has already released two cover albums, it was high time for original material. The result is “Too Many Lies, Too Many Masters,” an album well worth listening to. Ronnie set out to create a record in the style of Dio, and he has succeeded admirably. Tracks like “Castaway On The Moon,” “Vengeance,” and the title track offer a modern twist on classic hard rock. The Dio influence is unmistakable, particularly in the haunting “Chased By Shadows,” reminiscent of “Last In Line” and “Egypt (The Chains Are On).”

The musicians accompanying Ronnie on “Too Many Lies, Too Many Masters” are his close friends. His decision not to assemble a star-studded cast, despite his extensive network of renowned musicians, adds an authentic touch to the album. Each song is expertly performed, featuring impressive riffs and a range of styles. “Too Many Lies, Too Many Masters” marks a promising beginning to Ronnie’s solo career.
