Big changes happened to one of Germany’s oldest and best Metal bands when drummer Andre Hilgers and guitarist Victor Smolski left the band about a year ago. Though Peavey Wagner is the core main man in the band, such changes have proven hazardous to many other outfits. But not Rage, au contraire. When Smolski left he took the symphonic sounds with him and left Wagner with his band’s metallic roots. The Devil Strikes Again is a step back to the ’90s when the band delivered immortal Metal anthems. Rage manages the unexpected and delivers a very strong album #22. Well done!

    Frank was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, based out of Bavaria, Germany. He has worked in the games industry for more than 20 years, now on the manufacturing side, before on the publishing end. Before this, he edited and handled the layout for a city mag in northern Germany ... maybe that is why he love being part of anything published. Frank got hooked on Metal at the age of 14 when a friend introduced him to AC/DC. They were listening to The Beatles, Madness, and The Police, and he decided they should move on. Well, they did, Back in Black became Frank's first Metal album, and since Germany is reasonably close to England, they had some small New Waves Of British Heavy Metal washing up on their shores: Tygers Of Pan Tang, Samson, Gillan, Iron Maiden, Saxon, Sweet Savage, Diamond Head, etc. If he had to pick his favorite styles, Prog and Power Metal would be at the top of the list.
