Founded in 1989 by Kai Hansen in Hamburg, Germany after leaving Helloween, Gamma Ray borrowed straight from the Helloween classics, and continued to pioneer Hansen's style of power metal. After four years with Helloween, Kai Hansen decided to leave the band at the height of their career. He then went on to do some studio work with Blind Guardian. Kai and his friend Ralf Scheepers from Tyran' Pace decided to start a project. They recruited bassist Uwe Wessel and drummer Mathias Burchard. The resulting sound was very close to Helloween's power metal style.

- LyricsYou try to call me, i'm not at home
my mobile's off, can't leave a message
And now you're waiting, still I won't show
you won't believe what happened to me
And now I'm running like the wind
- LyricsVoices are calling from somewhere below
Melting on the eastern shore
Rain is falling down on me
Been waiting for eternity
I'll be there

He came without a warning
