Freedom Call from Germany present here their fifth CD „Dimensions“ and their new band members Armin Donderer (bass) and Lars Rettkowitz (git) who are not only excellent musicians but also capable song writers. A third of all songs was written by them, the rest was composed, as usual, by Chris Bay and Daniel Zimmermann.
„Dimensions“ combines the melodious and fast songs from the „Eternity“ album with the bombastic hymns from „The Circle Of Life“. The spoken introduction of „Innocent World“ reminds of Jeff Wayne´s „The War Of The Worlds“ musical version. „Mr. Evil“ however is a weird track to dance to, and „Words Of Endeavour“ a wonderful ballad, very emotional and dreamy. The last song „Far Away“ features also a bag pipe and sounds a bit like Viking Metal.
With this new album Freedom Call managed to continue their success. Those rhythmic grooving songs that invite to sing along will not only be appreciated by old fans but will definitely attract many new ones.
