celebrate their 30th anniversary the band decided to search their historic
archives. The result is 30 songs, of which some indeed sound very ancient and
only a few make me enthusiastic. Re-mixes, old demo songs, leftovers that didn't
make the album, bonus tracks, demo session songs and even a few tracks taken
from their first EP under their old name Avenger can be heard here.
Fans of the band will be happy with this album and they can make their
collection even more complete. The older songs don't sound that good (bad
production), in fact the sound of almost every song is different and that is
logical, but a bit irritating also. Peavy Wagner has never been and will never
be a top vocalist, but on the old songs he sometimes sounds so very false that
it is almost cult. I know that every band has to release something with an
anniversary, but I have heard better celebrations from a lot of bands.
advice fans to buy the limited luxury version with a DVD of a live perfomance
2013. The metal fan in general, not real die-hard Rage fans, better wait
for a new recorded album by the band.
