So it’s more than likely that FREEDOM CALL’s recent release ‘Master Of Light’ will be joining this list of epic sounding albums. First thing to say about the album and FREEDOM CALL is that a sense of humour and an open mind is definitely required; especially when the opening track ‘Metal Is For Everyone’. It can be imagined that the lyrics Metal is for everyone; the sound is made from steel will go down extremely well with audiences; whether they are listening to it on recording or experiencing it live.
This is the most elaborate, the most riff happy and the most utterly triumphant thing to come out of Freedom Call in 14 years, tattooed and muscle bound reinterpretation of the Methodist Jesus not withstanding. It perfectly bridges the divide between the fantastical songwriting that dominated the first two-thirds of Crystal Empire with the high octane speed and occasional ballad-based serenity of Eternity, all the while still managing to sound perfectly in context with the stronger elements that have come to pass since the end of the Taragon saga.
