Freedom Call Interview - 22nd March 2014 (6) copy

I’d heard a lot about the entertainment value of Freedom Call before their show and they certainly didn’t disappoint; it was a great gig with a great party atmosphere. One of the most entertaining gigs for me so far this year. But just before their headlining show at the Camden Barfly, Metal Rules managed to grab a few minutes with Freedom Call to ask them a couple of questions (and they’re just as entertaining off stage).

Freedom Call, A New Tomorrow, Neverworld

Camden Barfly

22 March 2014

Review by Rowena Lamb

One of the things about this evening that I find most bizarre is that somehow despite living in London for the amount of time I have, I’ve never been to a gig at the Barfly in Camden. How this has occurred I have no idea, but there’s a first time for everything and as first times go, this was a definite classic.

FREEDOM CALL To Release Live In Hellvetia CD/DVD On June 14th

March 25th, 2011
FREEDOM CALL - Live In Hellvetia CD/DVD

FREEDOM CALL - Live In Hellvetia CD/DVD

Having sold over 35,000 copies of their debut, Stairway To Fairyland, FREEDOM CALL’s tour with SAXON, ANGRA and EDGUY turned into a triumphal march. The tour culminated with memorable shows with SAVATAGE and SKEW SISKIN in August 1999 as part of the Popkomm music fair in Cologne. The band played almost fifty shows in 2000 and proved their worth at various festivals, like the Wacken Open Air 1999 and 2000.

 

Their second release, Crystal Empire, even surpassed the debut’s success. The sales figures increased, and even before the album was available, Freedom Call were invited to the Metal Fest in Bologna, Italy, the Metal Days in Switzerland and delivered an unforgettable performance at the STRATOVARIUS / RHAPSODY show in Bourges, France.

 

Following the release of Crystal Empire, Freedom Call embarked on a 63-day European tour with HAMMERFALL and VIRGIN STEELE that took them through Scandinavia, Holland, Germany, Austria, Hungry, France and Spain, among other countries.

 

June 2002 saw the arrival of the third Freedom Call recording, Eternity” followed by an extensive tour with BLIND GUARDIAN. During that time period they recorded Live Invasion. At the same time, Freedom Call established themselves as a headlining act in their own right and they were celebrated as the stars of the Wacken Road Show 2004 night after night.

 

The Circle Of Life saw the integration of more modern and unusual arrangements into the band’s sound, extending the musicians’ sonic range – an element which their album, Dimensions, also benefits from. With both albums they toured extensively with bands like RAGE and DRAGONFORCE.

 

In 2010 the new album, Legend Of The Shadowking, saw the light of day. The album is based on the story of King Ludwig II and charted in Sweden and Finland. In February/March 2010 Freedom Call embarked on a huge European tour together with GAMMA RAY and in May 2010 with AXEL RUDI PELL. Afterwards they played over 40 gigs on festivals and as a headliner. After nearly 15 years of existence and approx. 200,000 albums sold it was time for the first DVD which was shot by the end of 2010 in Pratteln, Switzerland.

 

Both the CD and DVD packages include the entire live show from Pratteln, Switzerland. The second disc of the DVD set includes interviews, a A Day In The Life Of Freedom Call featurette and much more. The limited edition 2 CD/2 DVD deluxe package contains both CD’s, both DVD’s and a deluxe A1 Poster.

Gamma Ray / Freedom Call – Dan Zimmermann

August 28th, 2005

Metal-Rules.com interview with Dan Zimmermann: Drummer for Gamma Ray & Freedom Call

Interviewed by EvilG,
July 24 2000

One of my personal favorites and one of the most respected power metal bands is Gamma Ray. The thunder behind Gamma Ray is the great drummer Daniel Zimmermann who joined Gamma Ray prior to the release of their 1997 album Somewhere Out In Space. Since that time, Dan has also been a part of Iron Savior and now the glorious Freedom Call. Thanks to the awesome people at Noise Records, I was given the chance to speak with Dan about his pre-Gamma Ray bands, what Gamma Ray is currently doing and information on his other band Freedom Call.
