The appointed creators of happy metal are back once again with a new album. With bands like these I’m always surprised that they can keep producing material every 2 years without getting burned out. Although seeing that I am a Freedom Call fan I’m not going to complain. So Master Of Light album (which I also believe the song may be a sequel to ‘Land Of The Light’) can pretty much be summed up by the opening track ‘Metal Is For Everyone’. The music video features clips from all their fans singing along, which includes men, women, and children, from all over the place. Which is very interesting to say the least. There is a lot of identity politics that goes on in the metal community, driven by all the different sub genres within the genre, which is often where the ‘no true Scotsman’ fallacy sometimes gets thrown around. But with this song and video it’s Freedom Call saying what they’ve been saying for years, as long as you enjoy what you enjoy then it doesn’t really matter.
