Rage - "The Price Of War 2.0" (video)

When the world's gone mad compassion dies.

Soldiers killing for their thrills,
making war just for the sake of war.
There's no future left than death.

Leave me be - misery!

Weep with the children and starve with the prisoners
before you scream for revenge.

Sorrowful women with tears in their hollow eyes -
this is no justice, this is the price of war.
The price of war

Some came running to the military,
misled by a false ideal,
believing guns could solve a problem,
still blind to see they only kill.

Ripped off from the middle,
ripped off from head to toes.
Ripped off - multikilling,
ripped off - guts and bones.

Weep with the children and starve with the prisoners
before you scream for revenge.
Sorrowful women with tears in their hollow eyes -
this is no justice, this is no justice.
You'd watch the dying, lay hands on their bleeding wounds
before you scream for war, don't you scream for.
This is no justice, this is the price of war.

Ως τετραμελές συγκρότημα θα συνεχίσουν οι Rage καθώς στην μπάντα προστέθηκαν δύο κιθαρίστες, ο Stefan Weber και ο Jean Bormann. Από τους Rage που κυκλοφόρησαν τον δίσκο "Wings of Rage" στις αρχές του έτους απέμειναν ο Peavy Wagner και ο Βασίλης Μανιατόπουλος, ενώ αποχώρησε ο Marcos Rodriguez μετά από μία πενταετία στην μπάντα.

Το νέο line-up παρουσιάζεται μέσω της επανηχογράφησης του τραγουδιού "The Price Of War" (υπό τον τίτλο "The Price Of War 2.0"), το οποίο πρωτακούσαμε στο album των Γερμανών metallers "Black in Mind" που κυκλοφόρησε πριν από εικοσιπέντε χρόνια (Μάιος 1995)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Rage are back from the Corona crisis with a double bang: as had already been rumoured behind the scenes, guitarist Marcos Rodriguez has left the band. To replace him, vocalist / bassist Peavy Wagner has welcomed two new stringsmen to the Rage fold.

New addition Stefan Weber (ex-Axxis) was introduced to the public at the METAL HAMMER online show in early May, now the band has presented its second new member, Jean Bormann (formerly Angelic, Rage & Ruins). Alongside Peavy, drummer Vassilios “Lucky” Maniatopoulos continues to be part of the group’s permanent line-up.

The full new Rage line-up can be seen and heard for the first time in the ‘The Price Of War 2.0’ video clip, a new edition of the song from Black In Mind, scheduled to be released on 12 June 2020 on all important online channels. The fact that Rage are already busy working on new material proves just how well the new line-up has gelled on a musical as well as a personal level.»

Peavy Wagner: «We’ve wanted for some time for Rage to be a quartet again, with two guitarists the way we operated back in the days of Black In Mind and End Of All Days. After Marcos had returned to Tenerife and consequently was no longer available, I used this opportunity to enlist two young guitarists.

As you can tell from the clip, Stefan and Jean complement each other perfectly. They’re both young and bring a lot of fresh energy to the band. We consciously chose this number for the video because we also wanted to revitalise the sound of the Black In Mind era.

The track was cut practically live for the clip, with only a few overdubs added. Rage will sound as heavy and punchy as we do on that song. As we’re not in a position to do any shows for obvious reasons at the moment, but the guys are bursting with energy, we’re using that momentum to work on new ideas that will probably be ready for release next year.»

  1. Δηλώνω φαν των Rage αλλά νομίζω ότι τα καλά τους χρόνια έχουν παρέλθει.

    1. Καλά αυτό είναι δεδομένο αν και πάντα ακούω κάθε νέο δίσκο που βγάζουν (και πάντα βρίσκω κάτι ενδιαφέρον).
