The creativity and productivity of the German heavy metal trio RAGE seems to have no limits. Little over a year after the successful “The Devil Strikes Again“, RAGE are set to deliver their new, 23rd studio album, “Seasons Of The Black“, which will be released on July 28th.
“Our fans are getting RAGE metal of the very first grade. We’ve been able to bring the band’s typical trademarks into eleven new songs, and we’re sticking to the course that we forged on the last album! This means hard and very catchy compositions that also sound thrash, aggressive and epic”, tells band leader Peavy.
Today the band release their first album trailer, in which they talk about what fans can expect from the new record!

“This song attracted our attention already whilst the pre-production so we decided to take this as our first single back then”, remembers Peavy and tells about the shooting of the video: “We recorded the video in Madrid, Spain with the famous company of SÔBER guitarist Jorge Escobedo (‘From Hell Pictures’). The lyrics as well as the clip deal with the so-called ‘Butterfly effect’. In the end, all of our actions will come back to us and I think this is really well shown in pictures with the story of the robber and murderer in our video.”
“Seasons Of The Black” was recorded in February / March 2017 at Megafon Studios (Burscheid, Germany) and at Soundchaser Studios (Zandhoven, Belgium). Its production was handled by RAGE, whilst the renowned Dan Swanö (MARDUK, OPETH, KATATONIA) took care of the mix and mastering at Unisound Studios(Grefrath, Germany). The cover artwork was created by Karim König.
