Karaoke-Contest ended

Written by Harald on .

karaoke_skeletonThe "Karaoke-Contest" is over now (it ended end of May 2011) and Gamma Ray have been stunned by the quantity and creativity of input (more than 100 contributions) of the participants. It will be a quite long way to go through them and much more difficult to decide which ones will be the winning performances in the end.
The band will listen to all recordings during the next weeks and the winners will be posted at the end of July or beginning of August 2011.
Thanks to all of you who took part in the contest and good luck as well. The band will for sure enjoy any of the recordings you handed in to us.

Unlucky Dirk: in hospital

Written by Harald on .

Luck doesn't seem to be with Dirk after the Mini Tour that just ended some days ago.
He had to go to hospital and will not be able to perform on the upcoming Gamma Ray concert in their hometown Hamburg, Germany at the "Hafenfest" next Saturday, May 7th 2011.
However the show will take place with "Eggie" (Tobias Exxel) from Edguy on bass guitar. Gamma Ray is glad that they don't have to cancel that gig due to the support of their friend "Eggie" and wishes Dirk all the best! As soon as there are any detailed infos on Dirks health we will inform you, but as Kai has stated today (Wednesday), Dirk is already getting better and will be up soon! So you don't have to worry!

Written by Harald on .

T-Shirt_Faces-back_smallThe Rays have just returned from their "Skeletons & Majesties Mini Tour" that took place in Germany and Switzerland.
The kick off had been on Easter Monday. The Rays had their first show with the totally new set in Bremen.
Going along with the latest release of Gamma Ray ("Skeletons & Majesties" EP) the band has spiced up seldom played songs the fans could vote for during the last months. So the Rays came up with an awesome collection of songs represented in two completely different styles - acoustic and with full metal gear.
