RAGE Release New Music Video From Forthcoming Album [Official Music Video]

German heavy weights RAGE have come a long way from their inception. They ushered in the early to mid-1980s, along with bands such as Helloween, Running Wild, Blind Guardian and Grave Digger. That’s a long long time and it really reflects on their discography, which is a massive 23 album one taking in the new to be released album as well. For a band that has been doing music for more than 30 years, it is a commendable effort to put out a humongous discography of 23 odd records, that is just mental. Surviving some notable line up changes RAGE has been a constant dominance in not only the German Heavy/Power Metal scene but also all around the globe, playing a blend of heavy and power metal with a lot of classical influence RAGE has announced their forthcoming album to be released this summer. Can this summer get any more exciting!?

It’s been only just 14 months since ‘The Devil Strikes Again‘, their last album came out all guns blazing to much fanfare and appreciation, they are back in the blink of an eye with yet another record, their 23rd in line, ‘Seasons Of The Black‘, out via Nuclear Blast Records on July 28, 2017. How can one band possibly put out an entire record in just over a year is just mental and beyond me. But well yes, it is indeed a good news, fans don’t like to wait you know. So, RAGE has released a new music video as their first single off the new record entitled, ‘Blackened Karma‘(watch below) along with pre-order details and track-listing.

This song attracted our attention already whilst the pre-production so we decided to take this as our first single back then”, remembers front-man 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 Sober (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.

The band has also included some bonus songs in the record, and they are from back in time when RAGE was still known as AVENGER. Peavy comments about the bonus songs as seen below,
It was really nice to re-record the songs from my first years of being a musician! I remember quite well how the songs were created. I always thought that it’s a pity that most of the people don’t know these songs, just because they were released with another band name. For me it was always clear that these songs are kind of timeless and when we played them together it was really awesome! Back then, we couldn’t realise our ideas as good as today. When you listen to the new recordings you will recognize how fantastic these songs really are!

Hi, Rattlehead here. I'm from India, and I'm obsessed with metal of all sub-genres but mostly into thrash and death. I also love other genres, like jazz, funk, rock, some punk, a bit of blues, some country, but well, metal is where I feel at home. I'm always on the run discovering new music. Fanboying Megadeth since I was 13. Love to talk about metal, sports and a little bit of everything here and there. I also love dissing your god, I love food, seeing metal gigs, traveling and also a metal merch and record collector. I hope you like what I write and the music I suggest you.
