If you want to pick the worst metal album of the year early, then this is it. This album is just plain bad. Awful lyrics, the same melodies for all the 14 songs, terrible vocals most of the time. They had in the past some decent albums,but the last album indicated that they are burning out. Now ,with this release they totally ridiculed them self. Songs like "Rock stars" "Hero on video" or "Rockin' radio " is so bad, it is embarrassing. Not that the rest of the songs are way behind. I think if they will release more albums,I just wont buy them. They should retire anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Completely ridiculous, completely irresistible March 2 2012
By Justin G. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Land of the Crimson Dawn is the seventh studio album from German power metal band Freedom Call. I lost interest in the band and their brand of shiny, happy, ultra-melodic power metal after the first few albums (which really are quite good), but their press releases surrounding this album suggesting that Land of the Crimson Dawn was "rawer" and had a "rock n' roll feel" was so unlike the Freedom Call I was used to that I had to check it out. a very weird album. There are 14 songs, and a good ¾ of them are very much your typical Freedom Call songs. They're upbeat, catchy, keyboard-heavy, and very polished anthems about warriors and magical lands. If you've heard even one Freedom Call album you know exactly what I'm talking about. They're good songs (especially "Back Into the Land of Light" and "Valley of Kingdom"), but they're also very predictable. The other ¼ or so of Land of the Crimson Dawn is made up of goofball rock songs with an almost hair metal vibe. Honestly, it's like the band is ripping off Edguy's style big-time. Long-time fans may very well hate songs like "Rockstars," "Rockin' Radio" and "Hero on Video," but I may like them more than the album's "serious" songs. They're completely ridiculous, but they're also way catchy and very very hard to get out of your head once you hear them.

And yes, I realize I slagged Edguy's latest (Age of the Joker) for this kind of thing, but these songs made me smile where that album didn' all.

All told, Land of the Crimson Dawn is a very schizophrenic album. It might have made more sense if Freedom Call had split this into a "serious" album and a "silly" EP and released them separately. Taken together it may be a bit too much for some fans to digest. I got a kick out of the album, but your mileage may vary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Metal Heroes March 4 2012
By Valance - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Marching into 2012 with a new album and the Happy Metal banner held sky high are German power metallers Freedom Call.

Land of the Crimson Dawn: featuring 14 new full length songs this new album is dynamite from start to finish and is, IMHO, quite possibly their strongest release to date.

Charging out of the gates things get off to a flying and fast start with Age of the Phoenix and Rockstars, two stellar new Freedom Call anthems which are destined to be live favourites.

The album boasts just over an hour of ear candy melodic metal, finishing off in style with the very catchy Power & Glory, a new Freedom Call party tune in the tradition of Far Away and A Perfect Day.

All the core elements of Freedom Call's signature style are here: plenty of speed, crunchy riffs, super catchy melodies, big backing vocals, singalong choruses and an incredibly uplifting vibe to the music.

Chris Bay's vocals are as dependable and versatile as ever, with singing styles ranging from power metal to hard rock, from pop rock to pseudo-death metal. One of the better power metal vocalists I find his vocals are like a blend of Michael Kiske, Andi Deris & Bruce Dickinson. He is one of the few power metal vocalists who can hit those high notes without resorting to screaming.

The production is balanced, heavy and packs a nice punch.

While traces of the more melancholic sound, as featured on their previous album Legend of the Shadowking, are still detectable by and large the feel of this release is much more upbeat.

The band has woven a groovy 'hair metal' rock 'n' roll flavour into their trademark sound, as can heard on fun tracks such as Hero on Video and Rockin' Radio and it really compliments their core style.

Freedom Call fans should lap this up wanting more, while power metal fans who are yet to discover the band are in for a treat with this release.

If you enjoy high quality power metal, particularly the kind designed to shine the bright side of light into your day, boost your spirits, and put a spring in your step, then Freedom Call are just the tonic.

A fun, awesome and thoroughly enjoyable album. A must buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good power metal, with really cliche lyrics June 16 2012
By G. Putman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I don't really know this bands career, but supposedly they have done some really good power metal in the past. I decided to explore more bands in the power metal genre, and got this because I had read some good things about them, and this was cheap used. The music is actually pretty decent power metal, played by good musicians, and a good singer. The problem I had was that I thought their lyrics were just full of cringe-worthy heavy metal cliches, and the fact that they tried to make every other song some sort of heavy metal anthem (kind of in a Manowar way). It seems like to me that they were shooting for some sort of commercial break-through with "Hero On Video". They only problem is that they are about 25 years too late with this song as it sounds like some hair band from 1987. I really hope they were not serious when they did this. Still, despite the lyrics, I will give it three stars just because they are a very good band in a musical sense.
5.0 out of 5 stars this band just keeps getting better March 7 2012

I can't say enough good things about this cd. If you are a fan or love European heavy metal get this cd. it is a perfect blend of good heavy with a dash of pop on the side. This is their *th full length album and it does not disappoint. Clocking in at just over an hour in length with thirteen songs it is a great listen. Their are plenty of catchy hooks and the key board work is fantastic without being excessive. their are plenty of rock anthems here as well as having enough sounds about fantasy. They have very European classic influences which translate well as guitar solos. It is a very modern metal album. This version has an extra disc of live songs so this a great buy. Keep rocking Fredom Call!!

I love Freedom Call. They are ridiculous and cheesy, but their music unfailingly makes me grin. LotCD was in line with what I expected from a Freedom Call album, but it didn't quite achieve the supreme awesomeness that is their last album, Legend of the Shadowking.

If you're a fan of Freedom Call, then you should get this album. If you're on the fence or intrigued by them but have yet to really make the plunge, I would get Legend of the Shadowking or Eternity first. If you like those, this is more of the same.
