It’s heavy, fast, extreme – but at the same time virtuosic and melodic: the new RAGE album “21” (OUT: 24th of Feburary 2012). Once again the CD was produced in the “Twilight Hall Studios” in Krefeld, Germany by Victor Smolski and Charlie Bauerfeind. Peavy, vocalist and founder of the band, explains: ”It may have already got about that our new album will come off pretty heavy. We’ve been bubbling over with creativity and it was huge fun to work on the songs – as always, it was real teamwork. Working with such fantastic musicians like Victor and André is great.” At the past weekend, the CD was presented to an international group of journalists which were gobsmacked and delighted at the same time. “´21´ sounds harsher and more virtuosic. The waiting time will be darn hard”, states Tobias Blum of Rock Hard Germany. Andrea Vignati of Italian Metal Hammer is even more enthusiastic: “This is a milestone for Rage’s future”. The artwork of “21” was created by Felipe Machado (BLIND GUARDIAN, RHAPSODY OF FIRE u.a.) and represents the power RAGE are radiating in the year 2012. The following tracks can be found on the CD: 01. House Wins 02. Twenty One 03. Forever Dead 04. Feel My Pain 05. Serial Killer 06. Psycho Terror 07. Destiny 08. Death Romantic 09. Black And White 10.
