German power metallers GAMMA RAY, featuring Kai Hansen, are going to release their upcoming album, “Empire Of The Undead,” on March 28th 2014. Ear Music has recently posted the second album trailer online which can be seen below:
GAMMA RAY worked on the new album during various sessions in 2013, during and in between their perennial tour with Eike Freese at the mixing desk supporting the ever precious work of bass player and co-writer Dirk Schlaechter.
It was just after landing in South America, that a unbelievable news reached Kai Hansen & co.: Hammer Studio, their home, rehearsal place, studio and meeting point for many metal bands in Germany had been blown away by a terrifying fire-stroke, together with instruments, amps, tapes… Back in their hometurf the band needed to get an overview about their losses only to do what they do best — move on! With that usual Kai Hansen smirk look… Life is too good to stop and moan.
“If this could not stop us… nothing ever will” — joked Kai Hansen – who also added. “We got rid of a lot of shit that we gathered there. Unfortunately a lot of good equipment as well. Anyhow, we look into the future and we saved the production and we can continue now in this new place. By mid January we should be done with the work on this album and it’s up to the record company to release it — sometime in March.“
