hello metallians, well im a huge fan of true metal, meaning power metal and anything from symphonic and progressive all the way to thrash and speed, rage standout to me right up in the ranks with running wild, grave digger, king diamond, iron savior, primal fear and so on. after 20 plus years of making albums,peavy wagner is possibly the best songwriter in the metal realm, not many bands can say that they have released over 15 albums and not one of them was not good, every rage cd is killer and this cd is no exception. every song on this album could be a single and that is no exaggeration. it is hard to find an album that every song is fun to sing along with, i love to sing along with this album, every song is very catchy in its own way and viktor smolski has created some of the best riffs and solos for this album that i have ever heard. his sound is so heavy and un matched, these riffs will literally knock you on your A,,
absolutely the freshest and most inventive guitar solos i have heard in years. mike terrana also helps make this the best album of 2003 with his un matched drumming, watch the concert video on the killer rage dvd from the cradle to the stage and watch his drum solo in the middle, i have never seen any one do the things he can do on a drum kit, it is like drumming gymnastics or something, absolutely amazing and i know of no other person who can drum like mike( jorg michael is pretty dang good also) any way this has become one of my top 5 listened to albums of my 1500 plus all metal cd collection. i can not take this cd out of my player because it is addictive. this cd truly deserved to be voted the best album of its year if not the best album of the millinium. if you like your power metal full of hooks and catchy as hell then look no further. peavy you are a metal god. also here are a few other albums that like this cd are great all the way through and never get boring.
silent force's worlds apart. wolf's evil star. kamelot's black halo.
freternia's nightmare story. iron savior's battering ram. primal fear's black sun. mercyful fate's in the shadows. and vision divine's self titled debut album to name a few. but few can match the power of rage and trust me, your grand pa's tackel box does not have near as many hooks in it as this album does. your friend in metal, brandon whitson, 25 of north carolina
