4.0 out of 5 stars Everything it said on the tin 18 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was told that this album is a glorious return to form for RAGE. Now, I honestly think that the last two albums were good, the new line-up is a strong one after all. However, that return to form part got me worried...i mean look what happened with St. Anger!
However, there was no need to worry. This album manages to mix the best parts of the last two albums with Smolski and Terrana with the golden era of RAGE (before the band left to form Sub7even). If you like the prog influences that Smolski brought to the band, you're in luck! He's in full Petrucci-come-Gilmour mode on here and Mikey is as solid as ever on the drums! But what of Peavey? Well, he rarely write lyrics that make you cringe, and in this his second concept album (based on a HP Lovecraft novel) his lyrics are among the best he's written. And his voice is good as its ever been.
So why not give this 5 stars? Well, as good as it is it's not an labum you could listen to everyday like say "Edge of Th9orsn" by Savatage is. You may want to put a day or two between full listen throughs of the album in fact, but you WILL come back and listen again because it IS a magical album and it's going to be hard for the guys to follow it up...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top ten of 2003 4 May 2004
By "karnivorr" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Rage's "Peavy" Wagner is the most underrated songwriter in metal today. This one man has gone through so many different styles of metal over the years that it's become very difficult to define exactly what kind of band Rage is. However, you can be certain that whenever you pick up a Rage album, it will be GOOD! Soundchaser, Peavy's latest offering, continues where "Unity" and "Welcome to the Other Side" left off, combining Mike Terrana and Victor Smolski's Progressive Metal styles of playing with Peavy's mixture of Thrash, Power, and True Metal. The newest result is the best of this era of Rage, "Soundchaser" is a rock opera with serious attitude and technical power. The title character has been the band's mascot ever since their famous third album "Perfect Man", now, we finally get to hear his story told through intense riffing, incredible drums, and lyrics that not only impress the ear but are quite fun to sing along with. Soundchaser is a must buy for any Metal fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another excellent Rage album. 16 Oct 2003
By M. Kell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Two albums ago, as a long time Rage fan, I began to wonder if one of my favorite bands was moving away from the dark, moody, melodic thrash I loved. The addition of Victor Smolski and Mike Terrana for departed members injected some tremendous talent at the time but also a more hard rocking/power metal feel and I wasn't sure if that was a good thing. Still, lead man Peavey Wagner's songwriting remained stellar and both Welcome To The Other Side and Unity were still great albums. On Soundchaser though, the small complaints are gone and the doubts have been laid to waste! This a truly amazing agressive and melodic metal album. This is the best Rage album in years if not ever and that's a tremendous statement for a band without a bad album in 20 years! It's right on par with their classics Perfect Man, Trapped, The Missing Link and Black in Mind. So, if you liked Rage in the past you'll love this, if you aren't familiar with them now's the time to pick one up. In conclusion, Soundchaser rules and is my pick for album of the year 2003. Recommended to anyone into Power,Prog, or Heavy metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest Albums Ever! 22 Jun 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is, without a doubt, Rage's best album to date. It combines the sound produced from Welcome to the Other Side and Unity, making the best yet. Rage is great live. They are REALLY underrated. They need more recognition, because they are truly great. One of my favorite bands. I met Rage at Prog Power USA 4, and, by far, their act was the best. But what killed me is that half the people left and then, not much of the crowd was into it. Three very talented performers and nice guys. This album is without a bad song, even the bonus track is good. I SERIOUSLY recommend them to anyone who loves metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best metal album of 2003 and i strongly stand by that statement 25 July 2007
By Brandon Whitson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Underrated 3 Aug 2004
By thamajam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I would have to agree with the other reviewers in saying that Rage is a very underrated band. Soundchaser is my first purchase from them, but I can guaruantee you that it wont be my last. The chorus' in the songs are very catchy, the solos are great, everything about their songs are top notch. If you are a fan of heavy metal, do yourself a favor and pick this disc up.
