Gamma Ray: Empire of the Undead
Artist: Gamma Ray
Title: Empire of the Undead
Product Type: VINYL LP
Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 release, the 11th studio album from the German Power Metal band founded by former Helloween member Kai Hansen. With the release of Empire of the Undead, Gamma Ray finally reclaims the throne on the world stage of classic Power Metal. Following a world tour with Helloween, the band worked on the album for more than a year with producer and friend Eike Freese. 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. 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 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.
