"Alive '95" (Anniversary Edition) will be released on September 29th, 2017 on earMUSIC.
25 years of Gamma Ray – 25 years of heavy metal from Hamburg: what started out in spring 1990 with the release of their debut album “Heading For Tomorrow” has achieved international fame a quarter of a century later. Tours around the globe with sold-out shows in the US, Canada, South America, Asia and the whole of Europe plus appearances at the most renowned festivals worldwide – vocalist/guitarist Kai Hansen’s band has long taken the world by storm.
In view of this impressive stocktaking on the occasion of their anniversary, there’s a special reason to rejoice for their international fan community: the band’s full back catalogue will be rereleased over the course of these years. All albums will be available as premium-quality digipaks including newly designed cover artwork.
To cut a long story short: Gamma Ray are continuing celebrating their anniversary in style, and all their fans are invited!
“Alive '95“ was the first live album by GammaRay. It was released on May 1996, following the live concerts in Milano, Paris, Madrid, Pamplona and Erlangen, during the band's "Men on a Tour" European tour. This 2CD premium-quality digipak includes such classics as “Man on a Mission” and “Rebellion in Dreamland” as well as two classic Helloween tracks composed by Kai Hansen himself. The 2017 anniversary re-release of Alive '95 contains a bonus CD including material recorded with Ralf Scheepers in 1993 who provides an impressive evidence of his insane vocal range on tracks like "Future Madhouse","Insanity and Genius" and "Heading for Tomorrow".
