Biografia

I Freedom Call sono una power metal band tedesca nata nel 1998.
l gruppo nasce nel 1998 ad opera degli amici Chris Bay e Dan Zimmermann durante un periodo di pausa della band principale di quest’ultimo, i Gamma Ray. I due producono un demo di sei canzone insieme al celebre produttore Charlie Bauerfeind, che mandò la registrazione a parecchie case discografiche.

Allo stesso tempo, il bassista Ilker Ersin e il chitarrista Sascha Gerstner entrano a far parte del gruppo. Chris e Dan videro per la prima volta Sascha agli inizi del 1998 mentre suonava in una cover band, mentre Ilker e Chris avevano suonato insieme nei Moon Doc per alcuni anni.

L’album di debutto, Stairway to Fairyland, venne pubblicato il 7 maggio 1999, ed il 25 dello stesso mese i Freedom Call fecero in Francia la loro prima apparizione dal vivo durante un tour assieme ad Angra ed Edguy. Alla fine di agosto la band cominciò la registrazione dell’EP di 5 tracce chiamato “Taragon”.

Verso la fine del 1999 venne registrato il secondo album della band, “Crystal Empire”, che venne poi rilasciato nel 2000.

Nel marzo del 2001 Sascha Gerstner lascia i Freedom Call (sarebbe poi entrato negli Helloween). Il suo posto fu preso da Cedric “Cede” Dupont, il chitarrista svedese dei Symphorce.

A metà gennaio 2002 la nuova formazione comincia a registrare il terzo album di nome “Eternity”. Dan e Chris furono questa volta gli unici produttori dell’album dato che Charlie Bauerfeind non era al momento disponibile (si occupò comunque delle registrazioni della batteria e del mixaggio definitivo).

    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.

    Think I'm in love with Knights of Taragon

    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
