The Circle of Life (SPV)
By: Mike SOS
German power metal troupe Freedom Call drum up all of the standard rock clich?s on THE CIRCLE OF LIFE, from mega-dramatic guitar solos to fist pumping anthems like "Carry On" that'd sound best accompanying clips of international soccer highlights. With a likeness that combines Manowar, Gamma Ray, and Symphony X, this quintet takes its harmless, kitschy metal very seriously, and the musicianship behind songs like "Starlight" accentuate that. While the happy go lucky feel of this 12-track disc is a bit misplaced in 2005, if it's innocuous power metal you're looking for, these guys deliver the goods proper.
