Gamma Ray took off with the excellent Heading for Tomorrow and, except for one or two disappointments, have delivered kick ass material ever since. For most fans, Land of the Free (1995) and Somewhere Out In Space stand as the band’s strongest releases, and also rank high among Hansen’s strongest works ever. A Power Metal album isn’t a Power Metal album without a lengthy, epic, closing track, and Revelation fills Majestic’s obligation. It’s a pretty good one too, with plenty of trademark Kai Hansen melodies, a symphonic arrangement, and solid musicianship. This last description basically fits for the entire album too, Majestic is a solid effort, but really it never takes it to the next level.
Majestic (2005) by Gamma Ray. Labels: Metal-Is. Genres: Power Metal Members: Kai Hansen, Henjo Richter, Dirk Schlachter, Dan Zimmermann.
This is power metal through and through, with Kai Hansen's high-pitched wail leading his band at a double bass gallop through songs about Hell, spiritual dictators, and dark destinies.
