FREEDOM CALL release “Master Of Light” in November!

New studio album Master Of Light out on 11 November 2016 (USA/Canada 18 November)

Good news for all those who didn’t get enough light during this, in meteorological terms, rather mixed summer. The coming of the light is near … from 11 November 2016 (USA/Canada: 18 November 2016) the arrival of Master Of Light will put an end to all this weather-related tristesse and brighten the mood with the familiar positive Freedom Call aura. Frontman Chris Bay promises: “Our fans can look forward to a whole dozen new songs which once again present the different aspects of our melodic metal with lots of fast-paced numbers but also progressive references and balladesque moments. There’s bound to be something for every Freedom Call fan.” Master Of Light will be available on Steamhammer/SPV in a Digipak and double colour vinyl version, as a limited box set with lots of bonus material and a special give-away, as well as for digital download.

The album was recorded at the band’s own Little Sun Creek Lounge studio near Nuremberg, with Chris Bay and Stephan Ernst, who already co-produced the predecessors Land Of The Crimson Dawn (2012), Beyond (2014) and Eternity – 666 Weeks Beyond Eternity (2015), manning the controls. The current line-up featuring the two founder members Chris Bay (vocals, guitars) and Ilker Ersin (bass) plus their two fellow combatants, guitarist Lars Rettkowitz and drummer Ramy Ali, has proved itself many times over, currently captivating audiences at major festivals worldwide with their lead single ´Hammer Of The Gods`, which arrived at the physical and digital stores in July. Even before the release of the album, there will be a new video clip to support the album track ´Metal Is For Everyone`, which is set to additionally whet our appetite for Master Of Light. Bay on the significant song title: “There’s a bit of heavy metal in all of us, isn’t there?”
