FREEDOM CALL will release their new album Master of Lightthis Friday via SPV/Steamhammer. Before they do, Noisey is hosting an exclusive full album stream. Listen to Master of Light in its entirety, and check out an exclusive interview with Chris Bay HERE.
If there’s ever been an album title to reflect perfectly the aura and musical attitude of FREEDOM CALL, then it’s got to be Master Of Light. The name of their latest release refers not only to the band’s enigmatic perceived image, it also proclaims optimism and joie de vivre to be pretty much an irrevocable philosophy of life. FREEDOM CALL reflect their musical enthusiasm in every single note, they share it with their fans, on their albums as well as in countless electrifying shows. A phenomenon with a reciprocal effect, the musicians allowing themselves just as frequently to be inspired by their fans. So it comes as no surprise that frontman Chris Bay talks about a “whole load of energy” which the band currently emanates as a result of their successful tour promoting the predecessor album Beyond: “We returned from the shows with such a lot of power that we found ourselves composing and recording the new material within a few months.”
As they did with their previous twelve albums, the current line-up consisting of original members Chris Bay (vocals, guitars) and Ilker Ersin (bass) plus guitarist Lars Rettkowitz and drummer Ramy Ali have recorded in Master Of Lightanother prime example of multi-faceted melodic metal. Once again, FREEDOM CALL‘S greatest forte is their verve and amazing dynamism, their fantastic melodies and anthemnic chorus parts – and it looks like this is set to continue.
FREEDOM CALL recorded more than a dozen new numbers for their new release, including four bonus tracks featuring various small surprises. Master Of Lightwas cut at the band’s own Little Sun Creek Lounge Studio near Nuremberg and the controls were manned by Chris Bay and Stephan Ernst, who also co-produced the predecessors Land Of The Crimson Dawn (2012), Beyond (2014) and Eternity – 666 Weeks Beyond Eternity (2015).So the Freedom Call formula for success appears to be just right and the superb result should secure the four musicians their place in the sun again from 11-11-2016 – which seems more than apt seeing that from a spiritual point of view, 11 is considered to be the number of light and awakening.
