German melodic metal band Freedom Call will unmistakably be swinging the hammer this summer: Today sees the release of their brand new single ´Hammer Of The Gods`, a first taste from the upcoming album Master Of Light as the approaching release date glows upon the horizon.
You can order the single HERE.
With ´Hammer Of The Gods` the band surrounding front man Chris Bay prove once again their ability to blend gritty, cool grooves and anthemic melodies to a typical Freedom Call song. “With its epic flair I think this number sets the mood perfectly for our new album. Is it going to trigger an earthquake? Who knows? In any event the song will hit like a metallic crash of thunder,” explains Bay.
With their new single Freedom Call illustrate the intense energy that emerges from the current lineup. Through extensive touring the two founding members Chris Bay (vocals, guitar) and Ilker Ersin (bass), together with comrades-in-arms guitarist Lars Rettkowitz and drummer Ramy Ali, have cemented once and for all their reputation as a live band to be reckoned with and are set to thrill their faithful followers on stage this summer. Bay: “Even if we’ve been a little quiet of late and only played a couple of selected festivals, the fans can look forward to some great shows where we’ll also being playing ´Hammer Of The Gods`, giving them a glance at the future direction of the band.”
