Agreed, the same happened with Edguy.

The 3 first albums were ok though .

This sounds like the music 13 year olds with backwards hats skateboard to. FFS.

Oh well maybe the rest of the album will be better, their last one was pretty good in my opinion.

edit: and yes, Edguy does this too. It's having a bubble-gum-pop single to attract a wider demographic. They come for the lame but stay for the awesome. It's an understandable thing to do but they will not be spared mockery for it!

^^ I thought 13 year olds with backwards hats skateboarded to pop punk, or stuff like Limp Bizkit...

Wow, Dragonforce must be happy in the knowledge that whatever they have in store for their new album, it can't possibly be as cheesy as this! I know Freedom Call being cheesy shouldn't be anything surprising, but even for them, this was OTT... Their last album was great, and this song would indicate that the new one certainly won't be topping it!

Or maybe DragonForce are sitting around brooding about being out-cheesed this time around.

Herman: "Fuck! Sam get ova heuh NOW"
Sam: *stumbles in holding a bottle of Jagermeister* "Whaaaaa?"
Herman: "It's fucking Chris Bay and fucking Freedom Call, their shit is the cheesiest shit I evah sawed!!!"
Sam: "Bloody 'ell mate it really is the cheesiest shit I've ever 'eard! Fucking wankers, nobody out-cheeses Dragonforce!"
Herman: "We shoulda seen this coming and stepped up our fucking game, I mean they have that fucking song about Merlin last album, we shoulda known they were bringing out tha big guns"
Sam: "Cry Thunder is the fucking cheesiest song I could come up with, how the fuck are we supposed to beat this shit?"
Herman: "We could write a fucking song about fucking Legend of Zelda so far away back in time forevermore??"
Sam: "That's not fucking good enough. That's it, cancel the tour, we will win this shit if it means we die trying!"

FIN.

There is a small but significant chance that they're saying that as we speak.

Exactly. "Superheroes" is one of the worst ever Edguy songs. I don't know why it's considered one of their best. "Robin Hood" may have had a silly video, but was actually a pretty great song with substance to it. Very unlike "Superheroes", and even more unlike this terrible new FC song. I do like FC, and will hope this song is not indicitive of the whole album, but if it is, they may have gone from making their career best album, straight to making their worst album ever.

It seems all of my favorite Power Metal bands are turning me off of them. First it was Hammerfall, then it was Dream Evil, now Freedom Call. I don't know why these bands insist on changing a formula that worked before. I'm sure people get bored with bands for a lack of experimentation in their music. But this... This is just sad. R.I.P. Freedom Call, you will be missed.

The last album didn't even touch the heels of "Stairway To Fairyland" or "Eternity".

I'm very surprised to find that you rate either of those albums... I obviously disagree with that, although those albums are great, especially the latter one. Some people would find even an album like "Eternity" as too cheesy, but that is like a very mild cheese, compared to the vintage extra-mature that is this new song and video.

They were cheesy but they were also fast and really Powermetal, with good guitars and drums.
This new song is bubblegum pop.

Exactly, that's exactly it. For me, there's nothing wrong with being cheesy, so long you're coming up with strong, powerful music to balance it out. Which is why I like Rhapsody (Of Fire) but can't stand Manowar. Freedom Call, no matter how cheesy the past material, was never anything else but power metal. (Aside from some tracks from the disappointing "Dimensions" album) This song is, as you say, pure pop with guitars. And the video is truly cringeworthy. Im having a hard time visualising the once powerful Primal Fear drummer, doing the ridiculous things he does in it.

I can stand a certain dose of cheese without problem, as long as the music is fast, with powerful riffing and pounding drums (think Bal-Sagoth, Helloween's Keeper's or "Stairway To Fairyland", or we could say Immortal). Even if I almost never listen to Powermetal nowadays, a bit of melodic Speed Metal can be fine for a change when I'm really in the mood. But there's a difference between real Powermetal and pop. Like you say, if music is poppy crap it will never work for me.
And problem is Powermetal seems to turn to pop more and more each year.

And yes, the video is ridiculous and not even in a funny way.

Sad but true... Where are the times of Ride the Sky, Banish From Sanctuary, the early Rage stuff, Man On A Mission, Somewhere Out In Space and other TRUE POWER METAL songs gone???? I never will understand the stubborness that the PM bands nowadays have to slow their speed (include sadly examples like FC, Blind Guardian (even when they still do nice stuff), Gamma Ray, and others). Maybe they're gettin'old for so many speed or they believe that innovation=lower speed... I WANNA SPEED & MELODY TOGETHER AGAIN, LIKE IN THE IMAGINATIONS FROM THE OTHER SIDE ALBUM!!!

Of course. I wonder what Treebeard would think of Dragonforce. Something tells me they would get tossed out of Fangorn forest shortly after arriving.
