If there's ever been an album title to reflect perfectly the aura and musical attitude of Freedom Call, then it's got to be Master Of Light. The name of their latest release refers not only to the band's enigmatic perceived image, it also proclaims optimism and joie de vivre to be pretty much an irrevocable philosophy of life. Freedom Call reflect their musical enthusiasm in every single note, they share it with their fans, on their albums as well as in countless electrifying shows.
A phenomenon with a reciprocal effect, the musicians also allow themselves just as frequently to be inspired by their fans. So it comes as no surprise that frontman Chris Bay talks about a "whole load of energy" which the band currently emanates as a result of their successful tour promoting predecessor Beyond: "We returned from the shows with such a lot of power that we found ourselves composing and recording the new material within a few months." Master Of Light was cut at the band's own Little Sun Creek Lounge Studio near Nuremberg and the controls were manned by Chris Bay and Stephan Ernst, who also co-produced predecessors Land Of The Crimson Dawn (2012), Beyond (2014) and Eternity – 666 Weeks Beyond Eternity (2015).
So the Freedom Call formula for success appears to be just right and the superb result should secure the four musicians their place in the sun again in November 2016 – which seems more than apt seeing that from a spiritual point of view, 11 is considered to be the number of light and awakening.
