GAMMA RAY Unveils Cover Art And Track Listing For “Empire Of The Undead”

Saturday, 15th February 2014

The Kai Hansen-led GAMMA RAY have unveiled the cover art and track listing for the 11th studio album, Empire of the Undead. The album will be released on CD, CD/DVD digipack, LP and digitally via earMusic on March 28.

The Empire Of The Undead title track was already been made available on the single/EP Master Of Confusion, an appetizer the band released in 2013, just before touring the world with HELLOWEEN.

GAMMA RAY recorded the new album in various sessions in 2013, with Eike Freese at the mixing desk alongside bass player and co-writer Dirk Schlaechter.

It was just after landing in South America that the unbelievable news reached GAMMA RAY mainman Kai Hansen and his bandmates: Hammer Studio, their home, rehearsal place, studio and meeting point for many metal bands in Germany, including their instruments, amps and tapes, had been destroyed by a terrifying fire.

GAMMA RAY will embark on the “Empire Of The Undead” tour in March, with special guests RHAPSODY OF FIRE.
