MASTER’S CALL are a force of heavy metal blackened by death from The Black Country, UK – the birthplace of Heavy Metal itself. Their debut EP entitled “Morbid Black Trinity” released in 2019 and was universally well received from the press and metal community worldwide, picking up positive reviews in magazines such as KERRANG, METAL HAMMER and ZERO TOLERANCE. After marching forth through the pandemic and various line-up changes within the band, the long-awaited debut album “A Journey For The Damned” finally reached the end of its long journey to completion.
Their next chapter is about to begin and is set to burn their mark on the world! “It’s been a hell of a long journey with many obstacles to overcome, but for us it’s so good to have finally made it to the end with the summation of it all captured and sealed in time”, says guitarist Dave Powell. MASTER’S CALL convince with a black mixture of everything that is extreme, but with melodies and straight-forward, recognizable songs, that basically can be described as black hymns. “We are an Extreme Metal band that remembers its roots and incorporates them into our “heavy metal blackened by death” message. Whilst all of us in the band may individually branch off on our own voyages into obscure Underground Extreme Metal discoveries, we still share that unified mindset”, explains Dave. When it comes to the lyrics on “A Journey For The Damned”, they all lead into a similar direction.
“They mainly deal with the dark and turbulent path through life: the atrocities, struggles and the victories that will be encountered along the way, as well as the spirituality and beliefs that influence us as we journey toward the inevitability of death”, comments John Wilcox. For the final mix and mastering, the band went down to Germany, working with Kristian „Kohle“ Bonifer at his “Kohlekeller Studios”, mostly known for his work with POWERWOLF, but also extreme bands like ABORTED, SINISTER and AGATHODAIMON.
