Evo nešto baš za uber fanove:


GOTHIC FATE feat. ex-GAMMA RAY bassist to release "Illuminati" via Skol Records

It's not a secret that Hamburg is the capital city of German Power and Heavy Metal, and gave birth to such legendary acts like HELLOWEEN, GAMMA RAY, RUNNING WILD or IRON SAVIOR. On May 29, 2015, Skol Records will reveal one of the best kept secrets of Hamburg's scene, and an album that will match these legendary names: "Illuminati", debut album of GOTHIC FATE. The band was active between 1998 and 2005, and recorded 2 demos and full studio album titled "Illuminati" in 2004, which remained unreleased and unknown until now.


GOTHIC FATE feature in its ranks Uwe Wessel, bassist known from GAMMA RAY, with whom he recorded albums such as "Heading For Tomorrow" and "Sigh No More", as well as bunch of singles and the legendary "Heading For The East" video. "Illuminati" has been recorded and mixed by Wolfgang Budde, and recently mastered by Bart Gabriel. The album includes 13 songs, and excerpts from few of them can be heard in the following album teaser: https://youtu.be/uDWymVHqQ7E

It was with great surprise that in 1988 Kai Hansen decided to leave Halloween: the band he co-founded and that in a very few years reached a very high level of success, ending up influencing and challenging the bands that were once their original inspiration.

Hansen left Halloween just when the band had finally reached international stardom and after having won the appreciation of metal giants such as Iron Maiden who often publicly championed the German band. Hansen, Gamma Ray and Halloween are now very good friends, often sharing the stage, but in 1987 the divorce was a proper rock and roll acrimonious one: a true shock for the metal scene. The reasons that brought Kai Hansen to leave the band are still the subject of interviews and fan debates, despite listening to the forthcoming reissue of “Heading For Tomorrow”, 25 years after its original release, it looks very obvious that Kai Hansen destiny was to lead his own band.

“Heading For Tomorrow (Anniversary Edition)” will be released on July 24th, 2015 on earMUSIC.

25 years after the official debut, Gamma Ray and earMUSIC have started a monumental work to re-release the entire production by Gamma Ray in deluxe double CDs.

The original albums will be re-presented in new shining, remastered version on the first disc (with the inclusions of all B-sides) while the second CD will be dedicated to old live recordings, demos digitalised for the first time from the original tapes saved by all members of the band, alternative versions and recent studio and live recordings.

“Heading For Tomorrow” was initially released as a Kai Hansen solo album. By extracting the LP out of its sleeve, “Heading For Tomorrow” revealed its “secret intention” (it was still the days of LP, or is it again?) revealing a second cover, introducing Kai’s new baby: GAMMA RAY.

After the global critical success of “Empire Of The Undead”, Kai Hansen has decided to continue the collaboration with Eike Freese and Alex Dietz (Heaven Shall Burn), the production team. Kai Hansen has spent hundred hours, digitalising and remastering hundreds of tapes, alternative versions and ideas that were so far jealously hidden in Gamma Ray’s private archive.

Adds Hansen: “I am incredibly thankful that after 25 fantastic years of Gamma Ray, I am still standing here, making music and performing on stage. It's awesome to see that fans from the first days keep on supporting us and that we still make new friends. It’s something you can't take for granted. After my departure from Helloween, it all could have gone the other way as well. Instead, we continue to make albums and tour the world. That's close to unbelievable!

Working on the first reissue for ‘Heading For Tomorrow’ brought back so many great memories and Ralf and I dug out some funny stories.

Two years ago, our studio, our harbour in Hamburg, burnt down and a lot of memorabilia and original tapes were lost, but we all searched our private archives and managed to find some great rarities and hopefully some highlights for the fans. We are proud to release our little babies in a new style with a brand new cover artwork done by Hervé Monjeaud and a new sound, a fantastic remastering done by Eike Freese and Alex Dietz.”

Kai Hansen is today the voice of Gamma Ray but it is important to remember that in the beginning of Gamma Ray’s history Kai had planned to focus on his role of songwriter and guitar player. If the original album still shines also thanks to the vocals of Ralf Scheepers, the second CD offers real treasures for all Gamma Ray fans, like the original demos of songs like “Money”, “Sail on”, “Heaven Can Wait” or “The Silence” featuring Hansen on vocals.

To celebrate their 25th anniversary in style, Gamma Ray is touring in Europe this autumn.

Nisam preslušao ceo jerbo sam prebijen k'o konj od umora, al iz ovoga što sam čuo najjači utisak mi je ostavio bubanj - dosta je naglašeniji u odnosu na ranije mikseve, a na momente mi je čak zazvučao kao nalepljen.

Al' morao bih da mu se temeljnije posvetim. Svakako deluje kao nešto što vredi imati u kolekciji, samo da procure scan-ovi da vidimo na šta liči booklet :D

Glasao sam juče, nego me mrzelo da pišem...


Space Eater

Dream Healer

Tribute to the Past

Last Before the Storm

Heal Me

All of the Damned

Abyss of the Void

Watcher in the Sky

Men, Martians and Machines

Razorblade Sigh


Ostalo sam po jednu sa svakog, mrzi me da pišem, nisu mi bitni toliko ti albumi :D


Namerno sam izbegavao pesme koje sam već čuo uživo, pošto sam ih gledao dvaput, iako znam da za 90% ovih koje sam glasao nema teorije da dobiju glas većine...
