Freedom Call: "M.E.T.A.L."

German band Freedom Call has been cranking out the power metal anthems since they got started in 1998, and with the title track off their upcoming new album, they leave little doubt that the influence of early '80s hard rock is alive and well in 2019. This band has a complete ESP-playing lineup, with frontman and founder Chris Bay playing an ESP E-II Arrow, guitarist Lars Rettkowitz on a James Hetfield Signature Series Snakebyte,  and new bass player Francesco Ferraro on an LTD Stream bass.
