Kai Hansen, the founder, vocalist and lead guitarist of Gammy Ray, is rightfully regarded as "The Godfather of Power Metal" for his immense contribution to the sub-genre. His riffs, licks and compositions have influenced lots of guitar players. His style is fast, wild, with influences of Iron Maiden, Yngwie Malmsteen and Judas Priest. He has managed to found three successful power metal bands including Helloween, Gamma Ray and Unisonic with whom he has sold millions of albums worldwide.

'XXX,' the first "solo project" album by Kai Hansen, one of the most influential guitarists and singers to emerge from Germany during the first part of the 80s, first with the seminal Helloween (of which Hansen is one of the founding members) and later with Gamma Ray, one of the bands that contributed to define the genre power metal, bringing it to generation of devoted fans worldwide since its first album. 'XXX' is, in pure Hansen tongue-in-cheak style, a reference to over 30 years of involvement in the world of heavy rock, as explained with the album’s sub-title "30 Years of Metal."

'XXX' is a magical journey. It is the story of how powerful dreams can be. Dreams and passions big enough to bring a teenager form Hamburg who is in love with rock music, glam rock and the first heavy metal sounds from the practicing in his bedroom and rehearsal rooms to the biggest stages in the world in only a few years, to end up influencing and sharing the stage with the very same bands he admired in the first place.

Not strictly autobiographical, 'XXX' is without doubt the story of Kai Hansen but it could very well represent the story of anybody who is not afraid to believe in dreams, with passion and dedication. It is the story of the ups and downs that everybody faces at some point during the journey of life: the lost and found-again friends, the glory, the tragedies and the joys.

Together with Hansen, a stellar band of musicians gravitating around the Chameleon Studio in Hamburg has formed spontaneously.
