Ok I've slacked a little bit in the last week, but here are the remaining good quality videos that have surfaced from Wacken 2009. I haven't seen ANYTHING about the supposed press conference they were supposed to do on that Saturday, so who knows? Perhaps news is just slow coming out from the journalists who were there, or they weren't ready to put out information yet.

Either way, enjoy the footage of the guys doing what they do best and having a great time!!! :D

New World Order

Heavy Metal Universe

Rebellion in Dreamland

To The Metal

Most of these Wacken 09 videos have been posted by the user Orric1, and I really appreciate it! Here's a link to his channel on Youtube:

He has a lot of other great videos from other bands at Wacken as well as various concerts and video clips.

Thanks a bunch man!!
ironlamia: (red)
But I found a site that still has the clip of Blood Religion online! I seriously haven't seen this anywhere for about a year and I loved it, so I'm posting a link up here so whomever feels like it can watch :D

Eventually, some new stuff should be up. The press conference should be happening any time now, and hopefully by the time I get home tonight we will know what the next year holds for the Rayz.

ironlamia: (pointy)
Well, today is the day. Gamma Ray's set apparently starts at 14:15 German time, which is give or take about now. Hopefully some videos will be up on Youtube before too long.

I'm not going to be able to stream it, which is a bummer, but hopefully the set will go well.

Here's One With the World from 2003 :)

ironlamia: (obnoxious)

This is another angle of the first performance of 'The Metal' at Karmøygeddon 2009
ironlamia: (contemplative)
Ok, I don't normally actually sit through slideshows posted on Youtube because they seem to take 900 years, but I really liked this one that I found accidentally :)

It has some really great pics and the person who made it focused on ALL the band members, which is really fantastic :)

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed it!
ironlamia: (obnoxious)

So my friend Emanuel from Argentina's dog really loves Kai... so much so that he chewed him out of his Skeletons teeshirt, hahaha.

I couldn't resist posting this, it's great! haha Poor Kai, hahhahaha.

And thanks for the pic Emanuel,  I'm still giggling over it, haha :)

Ok, I'm still mucking about on Flickr, well, moreso, again. I took a few hours to fight with a CD rack I can't put together, talked to some friends, cleaned out my fridge (Zuul has had to relocate) sooo I figured maybe someone over in Spain had time to upload more GR pics... aherm. Nope.

But yeah, I found this kid's backstage pics from the late 90s. I'm guessing he's not really a 'kid' now, but they're fun pics :)

Oooh, I almost forgot these, well, I didn't forget, I just forgot to grab a link earlier. Here are pics from Progpower 2008 in Atlanta. The girl shooting actually was right in front of where I was at on Henjo's side of the stage, so that was cool.

Hellish Tour - Live at Alcatraz, Milan, November 28th 2007

Here are some from December of 07, it has the openers, Gamma Ray and Helloween:

I found these looking for Derrame Rock 14 pics.

Electric kettles over here sir (or, more pics) )
ironlamia: (obnoxious)
Here's a couple more from Spain on the tenth. They're pretty far back but the sound is all right. For now though, I'm exhausteded... zzzzzz

Dream Healer

I Want Out - complete with Dirk and Kai having a shoving match, hahaha

ironlamia: (pointy)
These come from the Flickr page of Víctor Rodríguez Villar

Unfortunately only 2 for now, but it's a beginning.

I did take a look at the Hell Yeah booklet and found a typo, *snicker* It says Earnie Ball, hehehe *sigh*

ironlamia: (red)
Here's Heaven Can Wait also from Friday's Spain festival performance.

I'm still looking for photos, I'm sure there'll be some up. My friend Paco on Myspace was there and he hasn't uploaded any either, argh!

I also got Hell Yeah, the cd version, and a different copy of Powerplant today at Streetside. They actually had several GR-related things, most of which I already have, but my Powerplant copy is getting really old, and I didn't have the audio only Hell Yeah yet.

The Powerplant disc is interesting, unlike the opaque screen printing on the one I got from Derek back in 01, it's a clear printing and sort of disappears, strange. It also has the typo on the back inside cover corrected. I haven't opened Hell Yeah yet, I just got home and I'm still eating, but yeah, I'll probably take pics later since there's not much else to do today. Well, there is, but I'm being lazy and procrastinatory. Hurr hurr.
ironlamia: (pointy)
Ok, here's some random GR-related picspammery, mostly stuff around my apartment and things in Photobucket which I find worth sharing :)

Read more... )
ironlamia: (nerdy)
I Want Out!

I gotta say, I do like this version, albeit the drum track is really wimpy, but I was never a fan of Patrick. Course, I also don't even like saying I ever even listened to Hammerfail, but oh well. I blame Prozac. At least trading in the cds for Mr. Bungle was a good thing...

nerk nerk.

Hehehe Henjo and his oven mitt, lmfao. I love this video :D
ironlamia: (Default)
So yeah, here's Gamma Ray at the 14th annual Derrame Rock fest in Spain, last night actually.
