Interview

Rage Welcomes The "Seasons Of The Black"

The great thing about conducting interviews for this site is the opportunity to meet some true metal legends from across the globe. Having previously met the likes of Udo Dirkschneider and Overkill frontman Bobby Blitz, it was a privilege to sit down with the whole lineup of German veterans, Rage, led by the mountainous Peter "Peavy" Wagner in Murcia, Spain, during their tour with Firewind.

Diamond Oz: So, you're touring in support of "Seasons Of The Black, " which has been out for about a year now, how's the response to the album been?

Peavy Wagner: Super cool.

Lucky Maniatopoulos: Actually it's the second album of this lineup, by the way we call this lineup "the last lineup."

Peavy: The last in lineup!

Lucky: It's the second album we've done, it continues the style of the album before but focused more on the original DNA of the band. The reception to "The Devil Strikes Again" was good but "Seasons Of The Black" even more, you can see it everywhere, people always say we're on the right track and really enjoy it live. So it seems we're doing something right, especially on this tour, which has been double the size of the last tour.

Peavy: I think that not only have the older fans realised that we're focused on the original style of the band, also the younger fans are getting into what the band should be.

Lucky: Marcos said it best that this is the old style of Rage with some modern salt and pepper. It's timeless, modern, historic, a mix of all that which hopefully attracts younger people.
