about

Germany could be considered the birth place for what is now known as Power Metal. Bands like Helloween, Gamma Ray and Blind Guardian first forged this path in the '80s, but there was one band that never seemed to get their just due. SCANNER’s 1988 debut concept album, Hypertrace, was as good as any album out at the time, if not better.

Conceptually speaking, Hypertrace was an intriguing tale of space travel and the bettering of humanity, while sonically it was filled to the brim with charging thunderous riffage and ear-piercing vocals (thanks to guest vocalist, Ralf Scheepers).

Despite the fact that it flew under the commercial radar, Hypertrace is still beloved by cult metal aficionados today and ripe to be discovered by legions of younger power metal fans curious of the movement's origins. Divebomb Records’ Hypertrace Record Store Day limited edition contains brand new mastering exclusive to our physical reissue as well as a new interview with band founder, Axel Julius.
