2012-02-24 - The new RAGE CD „21“ is released today, and it is damn massive!
RAGE still reinvent themselves, with every record and have been unique,With their mix of Heavy Metal, progressive and classical elements and powerful Thrash passages, RAGE are always moving forward, adding new elements to their sound – still keeping their roots and trademarks. With “21” RAGE deliver the most heavy, fast and killing record of their long career. It was recorded at the "Twilight Hall Studios" in Krefeld/Grefrath (owned by the Blind Guardian guys), and produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (HammerFall, Helloween, etc.) and guitarist Victor Smolski himself.
Also the press results are amazing:
An organic and powerful piece of work. A milestone for the future of Rage!
METAL HAMMER (IT), Andrea Vignati
With no orchesters to enhancetheir sound, Peavy, Victor & André are left to themselves to prove they still are one of the best metal acts around. And they effortlessly accomplish it.
METAL HAMMER (ES), Sergi Ramos
A very instructive album – all the classic Rage elements with a modern metal edge.
POWERPLAY (UK), Marcus Jervis
The new Rage album is bombastic, introducing new elements to their music, the german prooves that you can still evoluate after 20 a years carreer.
