 Heavy Metal Resource Reviews - Gamma Ray & Dogpound   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Gamma Ray has become one of the giants in the melodic speed metal genre.
Most of these bands are very heavy, but some are not as accessible meaning that the music either has to grow on you or maybe it never quite works at all.
I think this band is getting noticed and people are paying attention due to the melodic and consistent nature they deliver their music.

 Gamma Ray Weapons? A Premature Speculation
Gamma rays are quanta of light of very short wavelength and very high energy—on the order of a million times more energetic than visible light photons, and at least 10 times more energetic than X-ray photons.
To put this energy to use, either in a weapon or for benign purposes, such as a gamma ray laser, a mechanism is required to release the energy quickly, on demand, and in a controllable manner—not at the useless pace of several decades.
The undisturbed isomer decays spontaneously by first de-exciting to the higher rotational band with the half-life of 31 years, then cascading rapidly to the bottom of this band, from where it de-excites to the ground state band with a half-life of four seconds.

 Get Ready to ROCK! Review of CD album by rock band Gamma Ray called Majestic
Gamma Ray leader, Kai Hansen is one who can live up to that status.
Majestic is an album that Gamma Ray needed to make, the previous two, while not exactly bad, didn't set the world on fire, like their predecessor, 'Somewhere Out In Space' did.
Gamma Ray will no doubt be the winners in any rivalry that there might be.

 Gamma Ray - Satan Stole My Teddybear
The unusual thing about this collection is not that the band has released a most popular collection of songs after a ten year existence - that sort of thing happens all the time - but that the band chose to rerecord thirteen tracks for this collection.
Hansen mentioned in the liner notes that the band only chose three songs from each album and he knew it was nearly impossible to make every fan happy so in the end the band did play their own hand.
Since Gamma Ray has been at this for so long, it is quite apparent they really enjoy the dickens out of this style and even forays into side projects (Iron Savior, for one) prove that this particular style is all they truly know how to play.

 HETE satellite solves mystery of short gamma ray bursts - MIT News Office
Gamma ray bursts (GRBs) are the biggest explosions since the Big Bang.
Gamma ray bursts were first detected in the 1960s by U.S. military satellites sleuthing out stray gamma rays potentially tied to putative illegal Soviet nuclear testing in space.
Short GRB sources, 10 times closer to Earth than long GRBs, likely emit gravitational waves that will be detectable for the first time by the second-generation Laser Interferometry Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), in which both Caltech and MIT are major participants.

In the beginning of the project Kai did not have the intention to form a new band but as the recordings with the studio-musicians went so well sourrounded by a relaxed atmosphere among the musicians it soon became obvious: Gamma Ray was born.
As plans for the band's fourth album came along, Hansen and Schlächter were annoyed by the fact that Scheepers lived such a far way away from Hamburg.
In May 1995 a masterpiece of melodic metal was released: The concept album Land of the Free as a mixture of the bombast of Heading for Tomorrow and the aggressiveness and heavyness of Walls of Jericho.

Most seemed not to know them, but the sympathetic band from Germany made some fans (they were hanging outside the venue after the show, and many people asked them for an autograph).

The responsive crowd refused to let the band leave the stage in peace, so we were treated to two sets of encores.

 Lecture 5 : Gamma-ray bursters
They were discovered by accident in 1973 by the Vela series of satellites, which were launched in order to check that countries were not testing nuclear weapons in space, the atmosphere on land or at sea.
Since the objects could only be detected in the gamma-ray band, and no match could be made to any other type of object, the nature of these bursts was very difficult to investigate further.
Before the launch of the Gamma-Ray Observtory, the small number of known gamma ray bursts were distributed isotropically, or completely at random, around the sky.

 Metal Rules!!:  Interview with dan Zimmerman, Drummer for Gamma Ray & Freedom Call
The thunder behind Gamma Ray is the great drummer Daniel Zimmermann who joined Gamma Ray prior to the release of their 1997 album Somewhere Out In Space.
Yeah...A lot of people, they try to compare Gamma Ray with Freedom Call and I can say that it's different because the way, the basis, how we write the songs is totally different.
We first have the melody and we build the rest around while in Gamma Ray the guitar is more...it's comes from the guitar and the riffs are more complex.

Gamma ray bursts are short (~10 ms to ~100s) flashes of gamma rays from beyond the Solar System.
Most of their energy is emitted around 1 MeV, with only a small fraction in the X-ray band.
A somewhat extended source (a host galaxy?) was detected under the optical transient associated with GRB 970228, and more significantly, absorption lines consistent with gas at z=0.835 were detected in a spectrum of the GRB 970508 optical transient.

 Concert Review - Gamma Ray NYC   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Gamma Ray is one of the few bands that we had not seen before that we always wanted to, and never expected to have a chance.
Now the venue at this point was a little more than half full, but the band got a great response from the crowd, which we were very happy to see, as we think these guys are fantastic.
The band played a decent set which included a couple of their newer songs, which we must say, we were quite impressed with.

 MPE : Gamma-Ray Astronomy
It is thus not surprising that a wide variety of detectors are used to study smaller sub-ranges.
Cosmic ray interactions with the interstellar medium and radiation result in diffuse emission of a gamma-ray continuum spectrum.
The study of GRBs at MPE has many facettes: it ranges from building new GRB detectors, over operating a GRB detector on INTEGRAL, to performing optical and near-infrared follow-up observations of the afterglow emission of GRBs as well as studying the host galaxies of GRBs.
