Known as the "godfather" of the genre power metal ...

Started as a guitarist/vocalist in helloween probably the most influencial euro power metal band. Unhappy with his vocal talents, helloween hired a new vocalist Michael Kiske...With his unbelievable voice Helloween were becoming a force to be reckoned with

Kai Hansen then left at the worst possible time , just after releasing the two greatest Helloween albums "Keeper of the seven key" Parts I + II ... Helloween were in their prime but without Kai Hansen

He then founded gamma ray but started only as a guitarist. After the departure of Ralf Sheepers(vocals) Kai took on the position of vocals and guitar again , He also founded iron savior another Power metal band with a very different vocalist in Piet Sielck.

Kai Hansen is still with gamma ray and has worked with French Power Metal band Heavenly...Swedish band hammerfall ... power metal icons blind guardian ... and the project of tobias sammet avantasia along with members from old band helloween and other greats from the power metal genre.

Sep 17 Word of the Day
Fredagsmys is pretty much the most holy tradition of Sweden. The word origins from two words; β€œfredag” and β€œmys”, which roughly translates to Friday and cozy. Every Friday, all Swedes drive by the supermarket to buy ingredients for taco, soda and chips. Then, they all sit down in their sofas with their families or friends and watch telly. Usually, the parents fall asleep after a few glasses of wine or beer while the kids stuff themselves with chips until they have a stomach ache.
Now it's the end of the week; it is time for fredagsmys!

One Of the greatest Metal vocalists to ever sing, voice capabilities go as high as a sound of a screeching tire which makes his songs sound interesting. Started out with being the vocalist and guitarist for Helloween, then went to Iron Savior and finally stayed in Gamma Ray. Guest Starred in in "Valhalla" by Blind Guardian and Tobias Sammet's Avantasia
Kai Hansen is the originator of Helloween and Gamma Ray
