New studio album »SEASONS OF THE BLACK« in July 28TH

The creativity and productivity of the German heavy metal trio RAGE seems to have no limits. Only 14 months after the successful “The Devil Strikes Again” neckbreaker, RAGE deliver their new, 23rd studio album called “Seasons Of The Black“, which will be released on July 28th!


The stylistic connection between “The Devil Strikes Again” and “Seasons Of The Black” is also visually reflected in the artwork, once again created by graphic artist Karim König. 

The title song ‘Seasons Of The Black’ will be the opener of the 11 track-album.

“Seasons Of The Black” was recorded in February / March 2017 at Megafon Studios (Burscheid, Germany) and at Soundchaser Studios (Zandhoven, Belgium). Its production was handled by RAGE, whilst the renowned Dan Swanö (MARDUK, OPETH, KATATONIA) took care of the mix and mastering at Unisound Studios (Grefrath, Germany).

the album is now available for pre-order. You can purchase it in the following formats:
2LP (black) in gatefold

Peavy comments: “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!”
