Gamma Ray - Discografia Comentada

Logo após atingir o auge no Helloween, com os álbuns Keeper Of The Seven Keys I e II, Kai Hansen se desligou da banda devido às extensas turnês. Mas um gênio como Hansen, não poderia ficar muito tempo longe da música, e logo surgiu o Gamma Ray, no fim de 1988. Desde então, podemos presenciar o surgimento de um dos maiores nomes do Power Metal mundial. À frente do Gamma Ray, Kai conseguiu dar mais continuidade no trabalho apresentado nos Keepers, do que seus próprios ex-companheiros de banda. Mas o Gamma Ray não é o só uma continuação do trabalho de Kai no Helloween, a banda foi muito mais além! A banda sempre buscou alcançar uma sonoridade diferente, moderna, mas que não deixasse de ser Metal. Podemos observar claramente isto, ouvindo o álbum Heading For Tomorrow (1990) e em seguida No World Order (2001), dois álbuns totalmente distintos, mas que não deixam em momento algum de ser Gamma Ray, ou melhor, de ser Metal. Nestas duas décadas de atividades da banda alemã, Kai sempre teve grandes músicos ao seu lado, que souberam adicionar personalidade às composições, o que acabou criando fases distintas para a banda. Entre os grandes músicos que já passaram pelo Gamma Ray, um merece destaque especial: Ralf Scheepers (ex-Tyran Pace e atual Primal Fear), um vocalista com um timbre vocal poderoso e extenso e que não deixa nada a desejar para o Michael Kiske (desculpem, mas eu tinha que fazer essa comparação! rs!), observem sua performance em The Silence do Heading For Tomorrow e depois me digam! Ralf deixou o Gamma em 1995, sob a expectativa de substituir Rob Halford no Judas Priest, banda da qual sempre foi fã, algo que acabou não acontecendo. Além de Ralf Scheepers, outros dois grandes vocalistas deram uma força para Kai Hansen: Michael Kiske (!!!) e Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian), ambos participaram do álbum Land Of The Free (1995), até o hoje o mais popular do Gamma Ray. A formação atual do conjunto conta com Kai Hansen no vocal e guitarra, Henjo Richter também na guitarra, Dirk Schlächter no baixo e Dan Zimmermann na bateria. Recomendo a todos que baixem a discografia desses caras pois, pelo que eu vejo, não é todo mundo que conhece o trabalho desta banda.
