German power metallers FREEDOM CALL, who feature in their ranks GAMMA RAY drummer Daniel Zimmermann, have set "Circle of Life" as the working title of their new album, tentatively due in January/February 2005 through SPV Records. "Drum recordings took place in Kai Hansen ‘s [GAMMA RAY] studio in Hamburg, all other recordings will be made in Nuremberg," Daniel writes on the group's web site. "There will be 11 new songs on the album. In general you could say that FREEDOM CALL have stayed true to their style, even if you should be ready for some surprises. All the things FREEDOM CALL ever represented will be in there, like fast melodic speed-anthems, progressive arrangements, ballad parts, but also modern elements. The album will be mixed by Sascha Paeth, who you surely know of his work with RHAPSODY and HEAVEN‘S GATE." A European tour will follow the album release.FREEDOM CALL issued a live album, entitled "Live Invasion", in May through SPV. The disc, which was recorded on the band's tour with BLIND GUARDIAN, includes a special bonus CD featuring the "Tears Of Taragon" EP plus two tracks that were previously only available in Japan.
