last years 20th anniversary Peavy Wagner and his men are back with
a brand new album.
of the Dead” are split into two parts, the first part is the
“Suite Lingua Mortis” (the first eight tracks of the album)
all recorded with The Symphonic Orchestra of Minsk. The second
half of “Speak of the Dead” are traditional Rage stuff.
“Suite Lingua Mortis” cast shadows back to albums such as
“Lingua Mortis”, “XIII” and “Ghosts”, and the eight
songs hold the same high standard as those legendary albums.
on the second half of the album there are only two tracks that
hold the usually so high Rage standard, the first one “Soul
Survivor” sometimes draw parallels back to “Reflections of a
Shadow”, and the second one “Speak of the Dead” sounds more
like a typical Rage song from The “Unity” and
other five songs just sound like they were made so Victor Smolski
and Mike Terrana can show how great musicians they are.
Rage will find their direction soon again.
