Freedom Call

Freedom Call is one of countless German bands in the Euro power metal field, with a style containing exactly the melodic speed metal riffs and the everpresent upbeat singalong choruses that bands like Helloween and Gamma Ray made famous many years ago. Though the band execute flawlessly, they are though more or less indistinguishable from any number of other (mostly German) bands playing this style today. Nevertheless, they have forged a fine mid-level career, now well into their second decade of existence.

Recent album: M.E.T.A.L., released on August 23, 2019.
