Format: Audio CD
German heavy/melodic/power metal group "Rage" are back with a brand new album, "21" marking their 21st studio effort since their formation in the early `80s. "21" is the third album to feature the line up of founder bassist/vocalist Peter Wagner, guitar virtuoso Victor Smolski and prodigal drummer Andre Hilgers.

"21" could very well be marking a turning point in the band's career, artistically, being the first "Rage" album in over 15-year not to feature symphonic arrangements or orchestral complements on any song. Indeed "21" is a straightforward-as-it-gets heavy/melodic attack that takes no prisoners, of course it is bound to sound, at parts, as a simplification of the sound "Rage" have established over the past decade but still manages to retain their musical identity.

It has to be addressed that though a solid metal offering, "21" is far from an ambitious creation in the contemporary metal scene (unlike the preceding albums which prioritized creative experimentation); that is not to say however that the new album fails to include a good amount of memorable tunes: "Feel my Pain", probably the release's most melodic moment features catchy passages and fierce shredding by master Smolski, equally enjoyable is the classic sounding "Forever Dead". Then there is the anthemic "Destiny" and the intriguing "Death Romantic".

Overall "21" is a quality and relevant heavy metal album in 2012 and it could not have been any other way coming from a band like "Rage". Simply the objective of pushing one's creative boundaries, which topped their agenda for over a decade is now overruled. This is indeed "Rage" going back to the basics of European heavy/melodic metal.

I was very recently introduced to this band via Youtube. After viewing their music video for the track "21" and becoming obsessed with the song, I decided I had to buy it to hear the rest.

And @#$% was I impressed.

The mere fact that this band has put out 21 albums is extremely impressive. But to sound so great so late in their career? That's amazing. I'm becoming extremely picky about what I give 5 stars to in my iTunes library, and three tracks from 21 earned that place (21, Psycho Terror, Eternally).

I cannot, CANNOT, recommend this album highly enough. I don't know much about the technicalities of music, so I can't really describe the sound. However, all you need to do is look up the video I mentioned previously. If you like it, buy the CD. Period.

Great CD! Worth every penny! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys metal! If you enjoy metal, you have to aggressively search to find the gems, as the radio plays the same old crap over and over, and while Sirius is much better, they hardly ever play most of the gems I've found by looking at metal label websites and metal magazine reviews online. Check-out some of the CDs that I have reviewed in my past, and I guarantee you will find something you may not have ever heard of! Stay metal and support our metal community! If you discover something you like on my past review list, click "yes" on where it says: "was this review helpful?"!
