Rage Announce New Album Title

German power metallers RAGE have set "Carved in Stone" as the title of their new album, tentatively due before the end of the year via Nuclear Blast Records. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Carved in Stone" (described by the band as "a super hymn, which could open the live shows in future), "Open My Grave" ("very heavy and dark"), "One Step Ahead" and "Long Hard Road" and "Without You". Check out a studio report at the band's official web site.

RAGE's new DVD, entitled "Full Moon in St. Petersburg", was released on February 23 via Nuclear Blast. The double DVD set was filmed in St. Petersburg, Russia last year in front of 15,000 fans. "Full Moon in St. Petersburg" contains the complete concert in St. Petersburg, Russia, plus a lot of behind-the-scenes footage and material from personal archives. A three-and-a-half-minute trailer for the DVD has been posted online at this location (Windows Media, 7.44 MB).

RAGE recently announced the addition of drummer André Hilgers (AXXIS, SILENT FORCE) to the group's ranks. "During [the recording sessions for] the Nuclear Blast anniversary album, we were very surprised how perfectly André's style matched our new song, 'Terrified'," the group wrote on its web site. "So it was obvious that we jammed through the RAGE classics and the sparks flew immediately. André had a lot of new ideas that fitted perfectly our style and the understanding among us was harmonically. He brings a lot of fresh blood and power to the band and we have loads of fun again playing our music."

Ha, I kinda thought that would confuse a few people when I saw it. But we usually abbreviate Rage Against the Machine as RATM, not "Rage" since it is another band's name...as you now know.

Especially as the German Rage have been going since the mid 80's at least and are very popular in Europe. The last album was quality, heavy but with some interesting and unusual angles.

Yeah Rage are pretty good, although more thrashy than most Power metal in a way like Iced Earth. Ha I'm still finding this funny though, you guys do realise this is a METAL site?

Now Playing: Mastodon - "Capillarian Crest"
