I can't believe I'm gonna see Gamma Ray in just two days! I love the music so freakin' much, and they are such a great live band! So I think it's appropriate to post a Gamma Ray metal mania now:
Land of the Free Part II is Gamma Ray's ninth full length studio album. It was released in November 2007.
Gamma Ray joined Helloween on the 2007/08 Hellish Rock Tour to promote the album. (wikipedia)
I've played and listen to this album maaany times. I really love it! It got a lot of great songs, and it's just very energetic. The main topics are freedom (as you would expect from the album title), and the world's destrucion by humans.
My favorite songs are "Into the Storm", "From the Ashes", "Rain" (which reminds me a little bit, and then I mean a little bit, of "Parasite" with Kiss), "Leaving Hell", "Empress" (love that song!), "Opportunity" (love the chorus on this song!), "Real World" (a great song to rock out to!) and "Insurrection" (long, but epic and great!).
Man, that's alomst the whole album! But if there's one song I skip it's "To Mother Earth". I want to like it, since it's written by Kai and all, and the topic is very important, but it's just too damn fast and busy for my taste. I know it's power metal, but it's like a duracell rabbit on ecstasy.
But like I said, it's a great abum, with a great sound, vocals and guitar play. Check it out!
