Metal Blast TV conducted an interview with Kai Hansen (vocals, guitar) and Dirk Schlächter (backing vocals, bass) of German power metallers GAMMA RAY at the Power Prog & Metal Fest, which was held April 12-14 at Lotto Mons Expo in Mons, Belgium. You can now watch the chat below.
GAMMA RAY's new EP, "Master Of Confusion", was released on March 15 via earMUSIC, the Hamburg, Germany-based international rock label which is part of Edel Group.
In addition to the brand new title cut, "Master Of Confusion" features a second new studio track, "Empire Of The Undead", showing the heavier side of the band, with an explosion of energy and pure GAMMA RAY sound at its best.
The release is not free from tasty rarities: a brand new studio cover versions of British glam rock band SWEET ("Lost Angels" — "the reason I have joined a band many years ago," stated GAMMA RAY frontman Kai Hansen) and a hidden treasure of NWOBHM ("Death Or Glory" by HOLOCAUST).
"Master Of Confusion" is rounded off with six live versions ("The Spirit", "Wings Of Destiny", "Farewell", "Gamma Ray", "Time To Break Free" and "Insurrection", recorded in Bochum) that were already included on the Blu-ray "Skeletons & Majesties Live" but were not featured on the CD release (which included the show recorded in Pratteln).
