Pilsen METALFEST started and FREEDOM CALL are releasing a new single

...dedicated to this festival!

If a survey was commissioned to find out at which shows audiences are at their most boisterous, FREEDOM CALL would definitely be among the leading acts.
The southern German melodic power metal band surrounding frontman and founder Chris Bay regularly leaves euphoric audiences in the wake of its shows, carried away by the group’s catchy songs and inspiring stage performance. And that's exactly what they managed to document at last year's METALFEST in PILSEN and preserve it forever thanks to CD and Blu-ray! A new release from FREEDOM CALL is called “The M.E.T.A.L. Fest" and will be released on July 14th, i.e. the day before their next live performance in the Czech republic, at MASTERS OF ROCK in VIZOVICE!

Today, precisely at the opening of this year's METALFEST, the band releases the first single from this album, a song composed as a tribute to this festival “The M.E.T.A.L. Fest".

“When we were invited to play the Metalfest in Pilsen in the Czech Republic, we heard on our way there that not only top-of-the-range recording equipment but also eight to ten professional cameras would be available at the festival, so we spontaneously decided to record the show. We then also recorded our show at Regensburg’s Eventhall Airport to get enough material for additional bonus material and interesting behind-the-scenes shots.”

The result is a versatile cross-section of both concerts, or, as Bay calls it, “a patchwork in which authenticity was more important to us than some soulless, glossy high-end product”. And indeed, ‘The M.E.T.A.L. Fest’ turns out to be anything but a sterile recording.

Friends, enjoy “The M.E.T.A.L. Fest" and this year's METALFEST in PILSEN and look forward to Sunday when Chris BAY will present this new song to you personally, live, with just his acoustic guitar!
