RAGE announce new line‐up


An outcry went through the metal scene, when Peter „Peavy“ Wagner and Victor Smolski of RAGE declared the end of their musical collaboration in the beginning of February 2015. Since André Hilgers also had to leave his place behind the drums, rumors were running high quickly and there was even talk about RAGE would call it quits. Though Peavy made it clear over and over again in inter‐ views that the new line‐up of the band was already positioned, the names of his new band mates remained untold.
Now the wait has come to an end – the new line‐up of RAGE reads as follows:
Peter „Peavy“ Wagner – Vocals, Bass
Marcos Rodriguez – Guitars, Vocals
Vassilios „Lucky“ Maniatopoulos – Drums, Vocals
