With "The Flood Inside" LONG DISTANCE CALLING stepped out of pure instrumental rock and are introducing their new vocalist Martin "Marsen" Fischer, who did vocals for three out of the eight songs on the album. On "Welcome Change" Vincent Cavanagh (Anathema) and Petter Carlsen took over the vocal duties at the invitation of the band, but in addition to the aforementioned artists they have a whole number of guests on the album: The German blues guitarist Henrik Freischlader or Jahcoozi-mastermind Robot Koch (who previously worked with the likes of Casper, Max Mutzke or Marteria). Additionally you can hear Tuneverse cofounder Alex Komlew and Mario Cullmann (formerly known as DJ Coolman for Fünf Sterne Deluxe). "We have never bowed down to any rules for what you may or may not do as an instrumental band. It is only us making the rules."
Some feedback from the press for "The Flood Inside":
"As immersive and idiosyncratic as you'd expect... with Martin Fischer ensconced behind the mic, this record should do LDC a lot of favours." (Rock a Rolla, UK)
"a vastly dynamic musical journey" (Terrorizer, UK)
"this is the best album Long Distance Calling have recorded to date" (Powerplay, UK)
"an engaging hybrid of blues-tinged licks and effects-fuelled ambience" (Total Guitar, UK)

"Unplanned mainstream, artistically of integrity and a sonic antidote to all the filth - an ANGEL DUST of the Twenty-Tens." (Sound Check #2, 7 von 7 Punkten Metal Hammer, D)
"Consequent!" (Radar #4 Eclipsed, D)
"With their new singer on board Long Distance Calling manage changes of course, remarkable aerobatics and spot landings." (Visions, D)
"By now LDC have reached the mainstream, they are loved by (Classic-) Rock as well as Metal fans." (Rock Hard, D)
"'The Flood Inside' is violent and fragile, charming and nasty, straight and confused." (EMP, D)
"LONG DISTANCE CALLING's 'The Flood Inside" is so amazing that every person, who is halfway interested in Rock, will add it to his/her collection, no matter how their style is called." (60minuten.net)
"... excitingly arranged Prog monsters, that stick in your mind and come up with real highlights such as the amazing solo from Dave in 'Inside The Flood'." (Powermetal.de)
