Lingua Mortis Orchestra
Equals to RAGE, LMO is an important part of me and I will put in the same amount of passion and creative energy as I have done in the past.
The Lingua Mortis Orchestra is the name associated with the orchestras who played with Rage since 1996 on the albums or on stage.
Lingua Mortis, the first classical album by a German metal act, in 1996. Their material was performed live for the first time in late summer 1996 in Kufstein, Austria. Subsequently, Rage, and the orchestra used, embarked on a celebrated Christmas tour and played several European festivals. In March 1998 Rage released Their thirteenth album XIII including the Lingua Mortis Orchestra having a considerable success on the charts. XIII was ranked number 272 in Rock Hard magazine’s book of The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time. After the album XIII, in 1999 Rage continued working with the Lingua Mortis Orchestra for their next album Ghosts. Lingua Mortis recorded in 2013 the album LMO, with two orchestras from Spain and Belarus. The album features Metalium’s ex-vocalist Henning Basse, Jeannette Marchewka and Dana Harnge as additional vocalists.
