|Freedom Call is not another good band from German, which plays interesting power metal. Freedom Call are becoming slowly one of the best bands in their genre in the whole Europe. Just listen to their new album and you will understand those things i say. Daniel Zimmermann the drummer of the band, told us about the new album of Freedom Call and about Gamma Ray...|
my congratulations on “Eternity”! Tell us all the latest news from
Well, the Tour in Germany and Spain as a support for Blind Guardian
was very successful for us. Right now we have a little break. In
summer we do some festivals in UK, Leipzig. In September we will finish
our Live album and we play some headlining shows in France.
you tell us any remarkable or funny fact that happened during the
recordings of the album?
Well, we had lots of fun during the recordings, though it was hard and
concentrated work for everybody. We had a nice chemistry and good
do the lyrics talk about? Is “Eternity” a concept album?
is no real concept album. It is chapter three and the final chapter of
our little fairytale "Tale of Taragon", were Ramzezh brings
the 4 Holy Stones together and gains the power to destroy all evil
forever. For details please read the booklets of the albums.
why did you call the album “Eternity”?
word "Eternity" has a mystic aspect and is a very powerful
word. I think that our music is mighty and powerful. Fantasy fairytales
are based on mysticism, imagination, dreams, fantasies and creativity.
That is, what we want to express and give to the people. Within the
lyrics there should be space to interpretate ‘em in the way everybody
wants to. The reader should get to a dreamworld with his own
there any further news from Gamma Ray? Are you composing a new album?
the moment we play a lot of festivals in Europe and Asia. Everybody has
some ideas for new songs together. We will work them out in October.
which band do you feel more yourself and you prefer to play? Is there
any chance to quite one band in the future if you don’t have much time
to spend in both bands?
God it is possible to coordinate two bands, because I don't want to miss
any of the two bands.
are your favorite drummers and from whom you have been influenced most?
Aldridge, Clive Burr, Scott Travis and Simon Phillips
you going to play in any festival during summer? How about coming in
As far as I know there is no invitation for us to go to Greece this year
(Interviewers note: The same old story...The promoters...shit!) .
As I said above. We do some festivals in summer.
did you came up with Freedom Call?
When we were first searching for the write name, we thought it
should be something positive, a name everybody can remind easily. We
came up with the name when we were sitting in a bar in Nόrnberg,
now we go on with the “Weird Questions”!!!… If your wife were
selling your whole album-collection just to buy for her a good and
expensive ring how would you react?
wife would never do that.
Aliens kidnapped you and you were forced to give them 3 albums of Metal
music so they could finally discover why that kind of music is so
genius, powerful and divine…which ones you would choose to give them?
Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden (The record and music I started with. It impressed me much)
You're sitting in a time machine, to which time zone would you travel? And would you do?
