Rage Complete New Album

RAGE have completed work on their new album, Carved In Stone. Guitarist Victor Smolski has issued the following update:

"Hi friends, Victor here. The studiojob for the new Rage album Carved In Stone is completed now, and finally I can listen to all tracks of the new CD by my HiFi rack with a quiet conscience, and I can say it has exactly become what we figured out before: STRAIGHT ON THE KISSER! (maybe you have to stop after 2 - 3 songs, getting a cold beer for a rest period...)."

"From the beginning we decided to compose the songs for this CD more straight, concentrating on cool riffs and catchy melodies. Actually, with our new line-up it was easy to realize everything, as we pulled together with André perfectly! All the recordings with our co-producer, sound-engineer and almost fourth bandmember Charly Czajkowski runs perfectly, as well as the final mix with Charlie Bauerfeind. From my point of view I promise you brutal guitar riffs with fancy soli. In one song, I've hidden a modification of a real famous melody - the one who will first recognize this melody will get a present! At 'Open My Grave', my sitar-guitar came into operation, at 'Lord Of The Flies', I've contributed a phat keyboard-arrangement."
