GAMMA RAY To Release 'Skeletons And Majesties' Unplugged Album

German power metallers GAMMA RAY have issued the following update:

"You might have heard through the grapevine that the Rays have something cooking again... and yes, we do have.

"As the 'Skeletons In The Closet' album was so well assumed some time ago, we thought it might be time to do an encore. While going through all previous albums we found that there is still a ton of songs that we either never or barely played. So we decided to do a bit of touring with a total different set and revive some of these songs with our nowadays chemistry and vibe.

"But that's not all... while jamming around with acoustic guitars we discovered that it's actually much fun and that we have a good amount of songs that are cool to listen to as unplugged versions. So these special shows will consist of live un- or rarely heard stuff in full metal gear ('Skeletons') and a good choice of our most famous hits in a different way (we chose to call them 'Majesties') ...and presto: here we go with 'Skeletons And Majesties'!!!"

"To The Metal", the new album from GAMMA RAY, was released in North America on March 16, 2010 via a new deal between DisManic Distribution and Knife Fight Media.

GAMMA RAYKai Hansen (vocals/guitar), Dirk Schlächter (bass), Henjo Richter (guitar) and Daniel Zimmermann (drums) — recorded a total of twelve new songs in the fall of 2009 at the band's own studio in Hamburg. Ten of the tracks appear on the regular album release, while the remaining two cuts are available on various editions of the album. has uploaded quality video footage of German power metallers GAMMA RAY performing the song "Gardens Of The Sinner" on January 30, 2011 at l'Impérial de Québec in Québec City, Québec, Canada.
