Editorial Reviews

You d be hard put to find negative emotions or a depressive disposition in the Freedom Call camp. Among the greatest fortes of this German melodic metal act is their uncompromisingly positive attitude to life, which the musicians have incorporated in their fresh and catchy songs for more than 15 years. This positive frame of mind is the central theme of their latest studio album, Beyond, scheduled for release on 24 February 2014 (Germany: 21 February 2014; USA: 4 March 2014). Vocalist and guitarist Chris Bay explains the basic idea behind the current album: The most important thing about everything you do is that you enjoy doing it. We always concentrate on the positive first, which reflects our character. Optimism is one of our most important philosophies, and that s exactly what Beyond is about.

Compositions which blend the band s greatest strengths and sparkle with a lot of class, finesse and enthusiasm. Bay: Stylistically, we have remained faithful to ourselves, in fact we ve even returned to a slightly more traditional direction. I think that s probably the result of recent tours, where we had lots of fun with the classic Freedom Call numbers, which not only a lot of our faithful fans from the band s early days will appreciate.

The album s focal point is the eight-minute title track, which Bay & Co. wrote and recorded with a great love of detail: Finding the right arrangement was an exciting challenge for us. Now that the song has been recorded, we re really proud of it. To us, Beyond is a kind of successor to The Quest from our second album, Crystal Empire. Along with Beyond , there are another 13 strong tracks, among them classic Freedom Call numbers such as Union Of The Strong (the release of which will be supported by a video clip), Knights Of Taragon and Colours Of Freedom . Chris Bay promises a perceptible musical development with lots of interesting accents and a number of surprises: Dance Off The Devil the off is consciously spelled with a double f with its African rhythms and mystic grooves may sound slightly unusual, but it perfectly suits the album title, which is meant in a spiritual sense.

I've only heard "Circle of Life" by this band and I enjoyed the album. I stumbled upon this release by accident and did a few YouTube searches. Long story short, the music was top notch. At the upper echelon of the genre. Essentially if you're into bands such as Dream Evil, Stratovarius, Mystic Prophecy, Hammerfall, Falconer.... The list goes on. You like those bands good albums, you'll be into this.

On a side note, the "box" is the same exact box as the Kamelot "Silverthorn" limited edition 2cd box. Really we'll done and sturdy. The extra cd is a fun listen. The 44 page Hardbound book included is a fun read. It's in German and English.

Beyond is one of the best albums from Freedom Call, I've purchased all of their albums and this one brings their original sounds back from "Crystal Empire" and "Eternity". Definitely worth the price for the digital download.

My favourite metal band for several years now, Freedom Call's latest offering, 'Beyond', is a dynamite album of 14 brand new Happy Metal anthems. I personally find that this album is very reminiscent of the band's earlier releases, in particular 'Stairway to Fairyland' & 'Crystal Empire'.

'Beyond' features Freedom Call doing what they do best: creating super catchy, melodic, uplifting, speedy, sing-a-long power metal accompanied by a clear, crunchy production. Impossible to pick a favourite track because the album is awesome from start to finish.

Format: MP3 Music
Freedom Call – a.k.a. the happiest power metal band in the universe – released their eighth studio album, titled Beyond, in 2014. The long-running German band took a risk with their last album – 2012’s Land of the Crimson Dawn – where they mixed in quirky, Edguy-style rock songs with their usual shiny, happy, power metal. It wasn’t terribly well received, so the band is back on (very) familiar territory with Beyond.

If you have at least one older Freedom Call album, you probably know what to expect from Beyond. The band basically takes the Helloween formula and makes it even faster and more melodic. Between Chris Bay’s melodic guitar work and his high-pitched vocals, it’s hard to sit still when a Freedom Call album is playing. Beyond takes the band back to the familiar lyrical territory of warriors, enchanted lands and unity in metal. Yes, it’s cheesy and yes, it’s a little weird to hear battle hymns sung in such a high octave, but it’s so damned hard to resist when these guys get going. Only “Come on Home” and “In the Rhythm of Light” bear a resemblance to the quirkier songs from the previous album. The rest – especially “Union of the Strong,” “Knights of Taragon” and “Journey Into Wonderland” – are back to basics Freedom Call anthems.

Freedom Call may not be breaking any new ground here, but chances are if you’ve stuck with the band this far that probably won’t bother you too much. Beyond is a very solid, totally enjoyable addition to the Freedom Call discography, and will probably be a most welcome return to form for those fans that were turned off by Land of the Crimson Dawn. If you’re new to the band or a casual fan it’s really hard to beat those first three albums. Either way, if you’re a fan of bands like Helloween, Gamma Ray and Gloryhammer, you need to have some Freedom Call in your collection. Go forth, Knights of Taragon!

Disclosure: I was given an MP3 copy of this album by the label for review.
