Freedom Call – Beyond Review

It’s time for a new Happy Metal party! The Bavarian Power Metal heroes Freedom Call are back with a new album called “Beyond” and want to show how a Power Metal LP should be done.

With this review I’ll tell you if they succeeded.

Stratovarius – Elysium

Who knew right? Maybe a come back album and perhaps their best since “Destiny” and “Infinite” for sure. I guess once you put all the crap behind you you still remember is all about the music and the fans and I hope Strato never forgets that message since they still have a very loyal fan base.
