"It's The Best Of Both Worlds On This Album"

"It's The Best Of Both Worlds On This Album" - 2006-03-28

2006-03-28 - In a recent interview with <strong><a href="http://www.bravewords.com/" target="_blank">BW&amp;BK</a></strong>, RAGE frontman/founder Peter &quot;Peavy&quot; Wagner discussed the difference between composing with an orcehstra for their new album, Speak Of The Dead, versus the way they composed the classical pieces for the Lingua Mortis album in 1996:<br><br>Wagner: &#8220;It was a completely different thing this time around. First of all, Victor (Smolski/guitars) composed and arranged everything for the orchestra by himself. This guy comes from the country of music (Russia), so when was 6 he was studying cello, piano, composition, everything. He was never in a regular school, he was always at this music academy in Minsk (in Belarus) where his father was the headmaster. So, Victor is used to working with an orchestra and is trained to compose that kind of stuff, which meant it wasn&#8217;t a problem for him at all. He just did more work than he would have done for a regular Rage album.<br><br>I was involved at the very beginning when we discussed what kind of direction the new album was going to take, and I did compose some of the classical material, but when we got together to rehearse the ideas I saw that Victor had everything straight in his mind. He knew where the music was going, which was really great. I just stepped back and said, &#8216;Okay, you&#8217;re going to do your masterpiece now&#8230;&#8217; (laughs). We decided that Victor would focus on the orchestral thing and I would take care of the metal stuff. So really, it&#8217;s the best of both worlds on this album.&#8221;<br><br>As previously reported, Speak Of The Dead was released on March 24th through Nuclear Blast. The track list, which features a 25 minute-long quite for band and orchestra composed by Smolski, is as follows: 'Mortituri Te Salutant', 'Prelude Of Souls', 'Innocent', 'Depression', 'No Regrets', 'Confusion', 'Black', 'Beauty', 'No Fear', 'Soul Survivor', 'Full Moon', 'Kill Your Gods', 'Turn My World Around', 'Be With Me Or Be Gone', 'Speak Of The Dead'.<br><br>Watch for the full interview with Wagner in BW&amp;BK #96.<br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=709"><u>RAGE</u></a>&quot;
