Gamma Ray – “Skeletons & Majesties Live”

Gamma Ray – “Skeletons & Majesties Live” 2CD / DVD (earMUSIC)

With Kai Hansen busy showcasing his new band Unisonic and this being the last gig for long time drummer Dan Zimmerman, Gamma Ray have issued a monster 2 hour live album that should satiate even their most gluttonous fans! Continuing on their ‘Skeletons In The Closet’ concept which was sampled in their “Skeletons & Majesties” EP in 2011, the essential purpose was to showcase unplugged versions of classics such as the acoustic ‘Rebellion In Dreamland’ and new versions of lesser well known material like the upbeat ‘Men, Martians And Machines’. In between is the more familiar stuff like the galloping neo classical ‘Hold Your Ground’ and some serious piss arounds in ‘Future World’ – complete with Elvis impersonations! Zimmerman is in fine form and goes out in style, as is the musicianship of the rest of the band, which really brings to life the material completed by superb live production. With the DVD and Blu-ray also featuring additional bonus tracks, lots of behind the scenes bonus material, rare archive material and interviews with the band, “Skeletons & Majesties Live” is a bumper end of year pressie from Gamma Ray to their fans as well as anyone wanting to see a less familiar side to them.
