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.
"The untold want by life and land ne'er granted,
Now voyager sail thou forth to seek and find."
- Walt Whitman 1855 There will always be a single constant: the journey. Now, Voyager was born from the concept of journey, seeking to understand and explore the world that surrounds its existence. Forever evolving and adapting, submerging itself into the depths of music, to explore and transcend the boundaries between genres.

This earned them immediate national fame with an early famous listener, fellow Manc Richard Ashcroft, shouting the first cries of "sign em up".
