RAGE  - Details about the new album! - 2009-10-23

2009-10-23 - RAGE have just presented their new album to an international group of media people. The special event took place at the famous „Nürburgring", where guitar player Victor Smolski had a motorrace same day, which he actually won. „STRINGS TO A WEB" will be released on February, 5th 2010, recorded at the „TWILIGHT HALL STUDIO" and produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (BLIND GUARDIAN, HAMMERFALL and more). The cover artwork was done by Thomas Ewerhard (AVANTASIA, THERION and more), showing their soundchaser as a spider, caught in a web.

"I am really proud of the album, we hardly ever sounded more inspired and it is an absolute highlight in our career", says founding member, bass player and vocalist Peavy Wagner. Drummer André Hilgers is adding: This albums shows all the different faces and characters and I call it the most enormous and multifarious record I ever recorded.". The album is indeed various and unique. It includes melodic and hymnic tracks such as „INTO THE LIGHT" and „THE BEGGAR'S LAST DIME", as well as powerfull Thrash attacks like „PURIFIED" or the final „TOMORROW NEVER COMES". But the heart of the record is the 16minutes lasting masterpiece „EMPTY HOLLOW", a progressive fairytale that unites everything RAGE is about. „You can compare „EMPTY HOLLOW" with our „LINGUA MORTIS SUITE" from the „SPEAK OF THE DEAD" record. Theis song was recorded with an orchestra and is devided into five parts. As a band we have discovered a lot of new possibilities and elements, even in Peavy's vocals, my way of playing guitar or the arrangements in Andre's drumming", says Victor Smolski.

Also the international journalists were convinced and expressed their compliments to the german metal institution. Dayal Patterson of the english METAL HAMMER decribed the record as an „intense, frantic and technical assault tempered by clean sung choruses and harmonies!". His spanish collegue Sergi Ramos of METAL HAMMER stated: „Everything you love about today's RAGE sound plus a dose of old-school thrown in for good medsure.". Patricia Martinez of the french METALLIAN added: „With this new album Rage is coming back with the most powerfull album they ever did"

"STRINGS TO A WEB" will be released on vinyl, jewelcase and a special limited digibook with great bonusmaterial.
