    What the fuck was that shit?? I've never really checked out Freedom Call's stuff before, and suffice it to say after watching that crap I probably never will.

    Okay Milton you win. Freedom Call does suck. No one can ever try to argue with you about it again. :lol:

    :lol::lol:

    See?!?! AND THEN YOU PEOPLE THINK I WAS BEING TOO HARD ON THEM!!!

    So now they've tried to be like new Edguy... You know, I always made fun of the fact that they do a lot of stuff that many many other bands have done before... from sounding like A, to changing their style and sounding like B, to writing songs with questionable songtitles. Sure, I'm sure they're not doing on purpose... but...

    Another Day (Dream Theater)
    Freedom Call (Angra)
    Carry On (Angra)
    Farewell (Kamelot)
    The Wanderer (many bands, ok)
    Eternity (many bands, ok)
    The Spell (Kamelot)
    Hunting High and Low (Stratovarius)
    Starlight (Helloween)
    Mother Earth (Within Temptation)

    :lol: You can't help it!

    Is it me, or does the chorus sound like something Sleez Beez would do?

    Sure it was 100% pure Edguy style cheese, but the video was fun. I'd see them if I had the chance.

    I have been a big time defender of Freedom Call. I think their last few have gotten worse and worse. I dont have audio at work here at the moment so I cant hear how this sounds.....I have a bad feeling.

    Upon watching it a second time, I actually kinda like it. It looks like they're having fun. It's not a song I'd listen to over and over again, but the video is goofy and that makes me smile.

    (Sorry, they won me over with the superhero costumes..

    Their first three are really enjoyable and they deserve a place on any power metal fan's shelf. I always thought they had a great distinct sound (very recognizable), great vocals, and killer choruses.

    The 4th and 5th albums were still enjoyable, but a little stale. I haven't gotten around to the Shadowking album.

    As for that new song in the video...yeah it's Freedom Call + crappy silly era-Edguy, but it's decent. I do hope the rest of album will have some more "serious" stuff. As for the video itself, they're having fun and getting people to talk about them....

    Say what you will to bash Freedom Call, but I'll take them over half the newer generic power metal bands that are still trying to keep power metal alive...

    And this is one of my all time favorite power metal songs/anthems....

    I didn't think it was *that* bad, I've seen worse. FC lost me at Circle of Life anyway. I liked the first three though.

    I refuse to believe that's the same band that released Stairway to Fairyland. The video makes it worse.

    ok, when I saw this my first thought was, "No matter what it sounds like, I am going to say I like it just to troll everyone" but after watching it, I do actually kind of like it. It is stuck in my head right now. "Bang, Bang, Oh, OHHHHHH!"

    And I LOVE the video.

    I'm definitely a Freedom Call fan but I'll admit their last three albums have been really hit or miss and nowhere near as good as the first three.

    That said, I liked this song.

    I'm with you 100% on this one! :lol: Nope, even the old guy who likes sometimes goofy music, can't get into this. How the mighty have fallen! :devil:
