The following GAMMA RAY albums will be getting reissued:

  • Sigh No More (1991)
  • Insanity And Genius (1993)
  • Land Of The Free (1995)
  • Somewhere Out In Space (1997)
  • Power Plant (1999)
  • No World Order (2001)
  • Majestic (2005)
  • Land Of The Free II (2007)
  • To The Metal! (2010)
The Heading For Tomorrow reissue details have now been revealed:

Heading For Tomorrow was initially released as a Kai Hansen solo album. By extracting the LP out of its sleeve, Heading For Tomorrow revealed its “secret intention” (it was still the days of LP, or is it again?) revealing a second cover, introducing Kai’s new baby: GAMMA RAY.

After the global critical success of Empire Of The Undead, Kai Hansen has decided to continue the collaboration with Eike Freese and Alex Dietz (HEAVEN SHALL BURN), the production team. Kai Hansen has spent hundred hours, digitalising and remastering hundreds of tapes, alternative versions and ideas that were so far jealously hidden in GAMMA RAY’s private archive.

Adds Hansen: “I am incredibly thankful that after 25 fantastic years of GAMMA RAY, I am still standing here, making music and performing on stage. It's awesome to see that fans from the first days keep on supporting us and that we still make new friends. It’s something you can't take for granted. After my departure from HELLOWEEN, it all could have gone the other way as well. Instead, we continue to make albums and tour the world. That's close to unbelievable! Working on the first reissue for Heading For Tomorrow brought back so many great memories and Ralf and I dug out some funny stories.

Two years ago, our studio, our harbour in Hamburg, burnt down and a lot of memorabilia and original tapes were lost, but we all searched our private archives and managed to find some great rarities and hopefully some highlights for the fans. We are proud to release our little babies in a new style with a brand new cover artwork done by Hervé Monjeaud and a new sound, a fantastic remastering done by Eike Freese and Alex Dietz.”

Kai Hansen is today the voice of GAMMA RAY but it is important to remember that in the beginning of GAMMA RAY’s history Kai had planned to focus on his role of songwriter and guitar player. If the original album still shines also thanks to the vocals of Ralf Scheepers, the second CD offers real treasures for all GAMMA RAY fans, like the original demos of songs like “Money”, “Sail On”, “Heaven Can Wait” or “The Silence” featuring Hansen on vocals.
