RAGE's VICTOR SMOLSKI: New Album Is Best And Heaviest I've Ever Recorded

March 8, 2002

RAGE guitarist Victor Smolski has offered the following update on the band's recent and upcoming activities:

“The songs for the new RAGE CD are finally recorded, mixed and mastered and also the injury at my hand fortunately cured real quick. Actually, Unity is the best and heaviest album I ever recorded.

“We have decided to produce a video clip to the song 'Down'. Interesting for fans from Belarus: On 21st of March at 20:00 o'clock there will be a press conference in Minsk with radio and TV and a jam session afterwards. (Restaurant - Club Nastalgia / Ivanovskaja 43).

“As [was the case with] 'Straight To Hell' on the Welcome To The Other Side album, 'Dies Irae' on Unity is a real special song for me. Both 'Down' and 'Dies Irae' we will play live during our concert on 16th of March at the Frankfurt Musik Fair. The concert, sponsored by Behringer, will start at 3:30 PM in the Music Hall Festhalle on the 'Arena' stage. Before that I will take the floor at Behringers booth E71/F71 hall 4.1 at around 1:00 PM. There, at the Behringer booth, RAGE will give autographs at 4:30 PM and at 5:30 PM we are present at Siggi Guitars, hall 4.0 booth J96.

“For me, a highlight on the new CD is the instrumental song 'Unity'. I experimented with lots of new guitar sounds and included many different solo styles. I don't know any song of other bands which is comparable to 'Unity'!”
