5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously perfect album!!
Ok i never bother to write reviews but i thought if there is one album worth reviewing its this!! After owning many Gamma Ray albums and other bands in this genre (helloween etc) i can say this is by far the best album!!

There is the perfect mixture of the classic catchy songs (Fight and Spiritual Dictator are great feel good ones) and also the more progressive...

There is the perfect mixture of the classic catchy songs (Fight and Spiritual Dictator are great feel good ones) and also the more progressive ones with some amazingly varied riffs and moods (eg Revelations and Blood Religion).

The more you listen to this album the better it gets!!!...its perfect!! And kai's out of this world in his vocal variation and quality as well as his ever brilliant super-fast, melodic guitaringnessabilty!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars To be played at maximum volume, 14 Feb 2011
This review is from: Majestic (Audio CD)
Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Saxon, Judas Priest...... Gamma Ray. If you have never listened to metal before, consider this album a perfect introduction. Power metal in particular is a sub-genre much maligned for it's wealth of copycats, pretenders and amateur dramatics - yet here is a work that exemplifies its great possibilities: galloping rhythms, fantastical (yet extremely dark) lyrics, clean high-range vocals and blazing fretwork combined to make a thunderous modern rock album. This CD was instrumental (haha!) in converting me (and doubtless others) into a metal-head.

There is little point describing in detail the sound of this album as I would be extremely biased and use nothing short of gargantuan hyperbole. If you have read this far and want to know what this record sounds like, I recommend you do a quick search on youtube for 'blood religion gamma ray'. In fact, do that now - go on, in 5 minutes you'll be glad you did. Imagine pogo-ing around an arena, lighter aloft, singing along through a massive grin to that anthem!

Modern music channels would have you believe the only form of metal is growly shouty microphone-sucking head-drilling death metal. If you've never heard of power metal before, it's probably because the UK's press ignore the vast majority of music made outside of Britain and America. Listen to this album and you'll realise the most rocking nights out in the world are being had in Germany, Sweden, Italy, Japan and all the other countries with a thriving metal scene.

If you thought rock was dying, degraded into a bunch of corporate copycat shoegazing 3-chord kids whinging in Q magazine about their feelings (at the expense of guitar solos), then this album will revive your spirit. I give it 4 stars only because it's not quite as good as Gamma Ray's masterpieces 'Somewhere Out In Space' and 'Power Plant'. Now treat yourself to another go of Blood Religion.

With Majestic, Gamma Ray once again contributes with original and creative ideas to the genre of power-/heavymetal.
