Biografie

Nürnberg, Deutschland (1998 – aktuell)

Freedom Call ist eine Power-Metal-Band aus Deutschland.

Bandgeschichte

Freedom Call wurde 1998 in Nürnberg von Chris Bay und Gamma-Ray-Schlagzeuger Dan Zimmermann zusammen mit Ilker Ersin am Bass und dem Gitarristen Sascha Gerstner gegründet. Im gleichen Jahr erschien die selbsttitelte Demo. Das Debütalbum Stairway to Fairyland und die EP Taragon folgten 1999. Auf Taragon wurde eine Coverversion des Ultravox-Stücks Dancing with Tears in My Eyes veröffentlicht. Im Februar 2001 erschien Crystal Empire, später im gleichen Jahr wurde Gerstner durch Cédric Dupont ersetzt. Dupont und Ersin schieden im Juli bzw. September 2005 nach Veröffentlichung der beiden Alben Eternity und The Circle of Life aus der Band aus, als Nachfolger kamen wenig später Armin Donderer und Lars Rettkowitz dazu. Am 29.1.2010 erschien das aktuelle Album ‘Legend of the Shadowking’.

Stil und Rezeption

Freedom Call spielt keyboardlastigen Power Metal mit eingängigen, oft hymnischen Melodien.

Die Texte ihrer ersten drei Alben spielen in einer Fantasywelt, während auf The Circle of Life eine Vielzahl von Themen aus dem Komplex „Mensch und Gesellschaft“ behandelt wird. Das 2007er Album Dimensions „verbindet“ laut Freedom Call „jetzt die jeweils gelungensten Eigenarten beider Werke“ (gemeint sind Eternity und The Circle of Life) und beschäftigt sich mit der Frage, wo die Klimakatastrophe enden wird und wie die Zukunft der Menschheit aussieht.

    Power Metal album of the year, so far, for me. Beyond has emotions in it, which is more than I can say for most of the "balsy" German Power Metal albums this year. Primal Fear, Stormwarrior, Sinbreed, Winterstorm, and Iron Savior's new albums are alright but don't have enough of the 90's PM spirit for my taste.

    Yeh, Land of the Crimson Dawn and especially Legend of the Shadowking are better than Dimensions. Maybe even better than The Circle of Life, although I have listened to that less than any of those other three. Shadowking is one of their best; I don't get why people often don't like it. It presents a darker side of Freedom Call as well with songs like Under the Spell of the Moon, Dark Obsession and The Darkness, and their fast songs are almost as good as ever, and Bay is at his most versatile on the vocals... never knew what's so bad on the album. Beyond though - WOW! I would have NEVER thought these guys would still release an album like that! No weak tracks (not even Dance Off the Devil), and the very best tracks like Knights of Taragon, Beyond, or, heck, even the overly-happy Come on Home are freaking EPIC! Some of the best power metal in years - definitely happiest since Eternity! And it doesn't feel forced one bit! I'm sold! :)

    New album is a real return to form. In my opinion their 4th best (with Eternity, Crystal Empire and Stairway to Fairyland being 1-3). This album is from start to finish as strong as the best moments from Circle of Life, Dimensions and Legend of the Shadowking. Land of the Crimson Dawn was still enjoyable but to me it felt like another band trying to be Freedom Call and not quite getting it... odd but that's the impression I got! Anyway, great albums in quick succession from Freedom Call and Iron Savior have made me very happy lately!

    I've noticied quite a lot of negativity recently regarding Legend of the Shadowking & Land of the Crimson Dawn... I enjoyed both of those albums a lot. The only FC album which has ever really disappointed me was Dimensions, which was by and large horrific. The last 3 albums have, imo, been a steady climb back to their best and Beyond is as close as they've been to their peak since Eternity.

    Yep, they're back. "Beyond" is their best album since "Eternity". [2] 1 hour of pure glory!

    Jokes aside, yeah the new album kicks ass. I like literally every song and Dance Off The Devil is awesome too, haters can leave the hall. I'm not sure where I'd rank it, but it would be probably between Crystal Empire and Eternity, aka best FC albums!

    I really like Knights of Taragon. Certainly a better album then their last.

    @Jason_Kountou, how about Flame to the Brave, Hymn in the Night, Ages of the Quest for the Thunder Gods, We Are the Rockstar Alliance, and Farewell to Fairyland? :D @TurboKuba, I think it's leaked and can be downloaded... I'll likely be buying the album though! ^_^

    Many tracks appear to be inspired by the earlier style heard in Eternity. Such a heavy, fast, and powerful album that will be one of the best metal releases of 2014.

    Let me just list here some words of the new album's song titles that have been previously used by FC..."union" "knights" "Taragon" "heart" "warrior(s)" "ocean" "rhythm" "light" "freedom" "eternity", hope I didn't forget anything. What's next, Island of Starchild Dreams and Palace of Innocent Power? lol
