Heading For The East
6/22/2004 - Review by: Ken Pierce
Gamma Ray “Heading For The East” Sanctuary Visual Ent. 2003 Reviewed by: Ken Pierce
This review will be a short one, since the DVD is such a straight forward live video essentially. The angles are not complex nor all that creative (yet it was shot in 1990). My rating, while not that high is by no means a reflection on the band performance. The sound is full of power and tight. Not much of a difference to the CD that I mentioned earlier. Kai sings a song called “Ride The Sky” showing what a great vocalist he actually is. I also enjoyed the inclusion of the classic Helloween tune “I Want Out”. Ralf Scheepers does not disappoint on this one. The rest of the lineup for the DVD is Kai Hansen (Guitar), Dirk Schlachter (guitars, bass), Uli Kusch (drums), Uwe Wenzel (bass, guitars), and Jom Ellerbrock (keyboards).
I recommend this DVD for the die-hard fan mainly. Newcomers might enjoy it, but the lack of any real features besides the concert might disappoint some viewers.
Nothing to speak of on this except the track by track audio comment by journalist Malcolm Dome and members of the band.
