Product Description

With the release of the 11th studio album "Empire Of The Undead", Gamma Ray finally reclaims the throne on the world stage of classic Power Metal. The loyalty of Gamma Ray and Kai Hansen worldwide is unique. Two EPs ("Skeletons And Majesties" and "Master Of Confusion") and a live CD/DVD ("Skeletons And Majesties LIVE") only made the demand for new material louder. Following a world tour with Helloween, the band has been working on the new album for more than a year with producer and friend Eike Freese (who recently mixed the live album "The NOW What?! Live Tapes" included in the recent # 1 album by Deep Purple). At the end of 2013, while on tour, Gamma Ray saw themselves confronted with the misfortune of having their Hamburg studio destroyed by a fire-stroke. However, the band responded to this tragic event by doing what they have always been best at: "Life is too good to stop and moan" claims frontman Kai Hansen and therefore quickly adds "No one can stop us". This message can most definitely be transferred to the new album as the title track of the record already proved Gamma Ray's sound is once again unstoppable and puts an irresistible heavy and fast approach to their classic sound.

If there is one thing you can say about Gamma Ray it's that they have a knack for being reliable. They never release (or at least what I would consider) bad music.

This album is not going to set the world on fire but it is a good effort. The songs are quite catchy, have great solos and catchy riffs. There are a few stand out tracks "Hellbent" "Palerider" and "Empire of the Undead". They're old school heavy metal at it's finest, pure balls to the wall!

Any heavy metal fan would do good to pick this up.

(Hopefully they will release a special "Wig" edition so we can have the same charming head warmer that is currently being used by Kai Hansen. :P )

This is my favourite album for many years! I grew up with hard rock on the 80`s and 90`s like Helloween, Maiden, Accept and Savatage and this one takes me back in time! The voice of Kai is just great and the tracks are various from a bit slow one with Avalon to my favourite and speedy "I Will Return". Unlike many other albums of this year, i dont get tired of this one. This album will give me many many great hours of listening! And for those who also care about sound quality; It makes my Klipsh speakers work very well:)

Another great album and probably their best for years. Not sure how any metal band could generate anything better than "Pale Rider" or "Avalon" as sing along anthems. The dual guitars just work so well.

I was a little worried that the change of drummer would make the band sound different, but it does not.

Truley an album that can stay on repeat play for ages and you feel no need to change it. :-)

In ten years time I can see this being one of my most played GR albums (unless of course they bring out something even better between times).

Great album, definitely the best of last 3-4.

I like some diversity in my Gamma Ray, and that's just it!

This is their best album since No World Order. Super-catchy power metal that is simply head and shoulders above anything else recently produced in this genre. Truly hellbent for METAL, straight from the heart!!!
