Gamma Rays third album �Insanity And Genius� were something of an experimental album by the band but there are still some perfectly crafted power metal classics in the mix as well. �Tribute to the Past� is a fast and furious barrage of incredible riffs and has my pick for Ralf Scheepers� second best vocal performance with Gamma Ray. �Last Before the Storm� and �No Return� are also highly catchy and loaded with memorable guitar riffs. �Future Madhouse� and �Your Turn is Over� are so fast and riff driven that they could almost qualify as thrash tracks. The latter is sung by Dirk Schlachter, whose voice has a heavy German accent and a somewhat punk attitude to it, although when he hits the higher notes he almost sounds exactly like Piet Sielck of Iron Savior. The remaining tracks are mostly slower rockers. �The Cave Principle� and the title track have their share of fast sections, but are mostly driven along by slower drum beats and Deep Purple inspired guitar parts. The closing track �Brothers� is a metal anthem in the Twisted Sister/Accept variety, loaded with lyrical references to the faithful of the metal genre. It�s a bit cliché at times, but still a load of fun. Track listing: 1. Tribute to The Past 2. No return 3. Last Before The Storm 4. The Cave Principle 5. Future Madhouse 6. Gamma Ray (edit) 7.
