Gamma Ray Get Ready To Release

An update from GammaRay.com:

Gamma Ray have spent the last few weeks working in the studio mixing their new live effort Skeletons In The Closet. About two thirds of the job are done - the band will be putting the final touches to the production over the next three weeks. A provisional release date has been set for the end of April.

“The live recordings sound fantastic!” says Kai Hansen, “I’m really glad that we decided to do this live album. It’s going to be a fantastic document of some really special concerts!”

“We’ve been working on them for too long now! (laughs) We started in mid December, but we had a number of technical problems right at the beginning that have delayed things a bit. We were first all big smiles when the two hard drives the shows were recorded on arrived a while before Christmas. It was a bit sad then that it was impossible to open anything on them! We tried all repair software known to mankind, and only sighed with relief as a computer specialist we consulted managed to fight his way through and open the files at last. We lost about three weeks because of that. We wanted to have the album out in late March, but now we’ve had to push the release back to late April.”

“We recorded the shows at Barcelona and Strasbourg. We’re using parts of both shows, some songs are taken from here and some from there. Actually most of it is taken from the Barcelona show, and about three or four numbers are from Strasbourg. I must admit it is pretty laborious to mix recordings made at different venues –- we had the same recording engineers and the same recording gear at both shows, but the house itself always adds to the sound. On an album, you obviously want to have the feel like this was all done on the same night, and adjusting all the bits and pieces needed for this are a pretty long road. It’s fun work though, and it will definitely be worth the wait!”

Skeletons In The Closet will be released as a double CD and will contain the entire tour set –- that’s just about 120 minutes of pure blistering power metal. As for the packing, there is no final decision yet as to what’s going to be used as the front cover artwork. However, there is for sure that the booklet will contain a lot (and that really means a lot!) of exclusive photographs on stage, off stage and in all other possible and impossible places taken on the ‘Skeletons’ tour in October/November 2002.

In the meantime, February 3rd sees the long awaited DVD release of the two so far existing Gamma Ray concert videos. Heading For The East (original release 1991) and Lust For Live (original release 1994) are now available on DVD for the first time and are packed in excellent Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. Both releases come with a bonus section containing an introduction and a track-by-track audio review by journalist Malcolm Dome. Check this place to order the new releases! http://www.noiserecords.com/default.asp In August, Gamma Ray will return to Wacken Open Air Festival to deliver the goods in front of some 30.000 metalheads. At the moment the plan is that the band will play on Friday night. We will inform you about the show time nearer the festival date.
