If you ask FREEDOM CALL fans about the outstanding characteristics of their favorite band, they tend to list two main qualities: melody and tempo. Both attributes will be on display once again on June 15th  when vocalist/guitarist Chris Bay, drummer Dan Zimmermann, guitarist Lars Rettkowitz and the new bassist Samy Saemann , release their latest album, Legend Of The Shadowking, proving emphatically that FREEDOM CALL are still among the most passionate and dynamic German metal acts. 

Stylistically, 
Legend of the Shadowking is a successful liaison of the group's basic strengths and new, contemporary influences, or, as Dan Zimmermann puts it: "Even if the two predecessors, The Circle of Life and Dimensions, took very different directions, both albums had a number of strong moments. Legend of The Shadowking combines the most successful elements from both albums. In other words: we included our penchant for fast and very melodic numbers from Dimensions with the more contemporary, bombastic components of The Circle Of Life." 

The fourteen new numbers were recorded at the FC studios in Nuremberg, while the drum parts were cut at the Area 51 in Celle by 
Dan Zimmermann with the support of Tommy Newton (Helloween, UFO, Victory), who also mixed and mastered Legend Of The Shadowking. The cover artwork was designed by the young Bavarian artist Jens Reinhold. 

The new album covers is a concept album about 
Ludwig II, King of Bavaria. He had a close connection to the composer Richard Wagner. Freedom Call was moved and inspired by King Ludwig's extravagance and his passion to musical theatricality. 

FREEDOM CALL are scheduled perform at various summer festivals and they have a headlining tour of Europe scheduled for autumn.

Supply downloadable mp3's or ogg and I might take this on in between my other reviewing assignments. Would have been interesting having a go at metal after 600+ prog reviews *chuckles*
