GAMMA RAY Drummer's MURDER ONE: Previously Unreleased 2000 Album Sees Light Of Day

December 23, 2013

MURDER ONE was a band founded by Michael Ehré and Frank Schütte in 1997. After the release of their first album, "Murder One", in 1998, the band returned to the studio in 2000 to work on an even more impressive piece of music.

On this album, Sven Lüdke and Dennis Krüger appeared for the first time as additional songwriters and guitar players. The band developed its own sound and style, and recorded ten songs showing MURDER ONE at its very best.

With the hard pounding opener "In Your Mind", followed by the uptempo song "Angel Of Blood", to the doomsday scenario "#3", the album constantly surprises the listeners, musically and lyrically, and takes them on a journey into the dark depths of the human psychology.

"With his lyrics, Frank sometimes exceeds the bounds of good taste," says the band. The most extreme example is the song "Feel" — which represents he view of things from the sick mind of a rapist and serial killer.

Ehré is the current drummer in GAMMA RAY who has previously played with ex-SCORPIONS guitar legend Uli Jon Roth. He has also been involved with METALIUM and FIREWIND.

Ludke currently plays the guitar for the internationally successful band MOB RULES.

MURDER ONE split up in 2001 but decided to make its previously unreleased sophomore album, "Touched", available after more than 12 years.

"Due to the events in Hamburg, where a building complex of rehearsal rooms and a recording studio burned down, we decided to release this album and donate a part of the proceeds to the affected bands," MURDER ONE says in a statement.
