Freedom Call - Live in Hellvetia

Release date: 20.05.2011

Having sold over 35,000 copies of their debut, Stairway To Fairyland, Freedom Call`s tour with Saxon, Angra and Edguy turned into a triumphal march, culminating in memorable shows with Savatage and Skew Siskin in August 1999 as part of the Popkomm music fair in Cologne. The band played almost fifty shows in 2000 and proved their worth at various festivals, like the Wacken Open Air 1999 and 2000. Their second release, Crystal Empire, even surpassed the debut’s success. The sales figures increased, and even before the album was available, Freedom Call were invited to the Metal Fest in Bologna, Italy, played the Metal Days in Switzerland and delivered an unforgettable performance at the Stratovarius/Rhapsody show in Bourges, France. Following the release of Crystal Empire, Freedom Call embarked on a 63-day European tour with Hammerfall and Virgin Steele that took them through Scandinavia, Holland, Germany, Austria, Hungry, France and Spain, among other countries. June 2002 saw the arrival of the third Freedom Call recording, Eternity, followed by an extensive tour with Blind Guardian, during which their most recent release, Live Invasion, was recorded. At the same time, Freedom Call established themselves as a headlining act in their own right and were celebrated as the stars of the Wacken Road Show 2004 night after night. The Circle Of Life saw the integration of more modern and unusual arrangements into the band’s sound, extending the musicians’ sonic range – an element which their album, Dimensions, also benefits from. With both albums they toured extensively with bands like Rage and Dragonforce. In 2010 the new album "Legend Of The Shadowking" saw the light of day. The album is based on the story of King Ludwig II and charted in Sweden and Finland. In February/March 2010 Freedom Call embarked on a huge european tour together with Gamma Ray and in May 2010 with Axel Rudi Pell. Afterwards they played over 40 gigs on festivals and as a headliner. After nearly 15 years of existence and approx. 200.000 albums sold it was time for the first DVD wich was shot by the end of 2010 in Pratteln, Switzerland.
