gamma ray

Gamma Ray have announced Michael Ehré as their new drummer after Dan Carpenter left the band recently. The band made a video announcement which you can watch below.

Michael is already known in the scene for his work with Uli Jon Roth, Metalium, Firewind and his band Love Might Kill and as well as being a great drummer, he is an excellent songwriter as well.

Gamma Ray have already started working on new material for their next album and are very much looking forward to entering this new era with "a fresh wind in their sails".

Kai Hansen commented: "Hi everybody out there! Well, since you've been wondering for a long time what's going on in Gamma Ray, here is some news.

"You might have heard through the grapevine that Daniel has left the band, which was very unfortunate for us. But I think we found a very good new guy here. And since we've been playing with him quite a while, we can say:

"We proudly present our new drummer, Mr Michael Ehré! Give him a warm welcome and stay tuned for some news!"



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
