Standing strong and ready to celebrate their 30th band anniversary, German Heavy Metal masters RAGE now release a lyric video for ‘Anybody Home?’, the opening track of their forthcoming new output “The Soundchaser Archives”.
This outstanding song collection with a total amount of 30 tracks contains a number of previously unreleased songs or versions, demo recordings and fractions of ideas, which finally went to find clear sonic ground.
The lyric video for ‘Anybody Home? ’is available to watch on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel:
The following statement was revealed as part of the RAGE liner notes on “The Soundchaser Archives”: ‘Anybody Home?’: “This is a new recorded song we created from leftover Ideas we had from the »21« Sessions. In that time we couldn´t find the right grooves for it and after changing the arrangement a million times, it was too late for that album. Now, after re-visiting the tune two years later, it came out naturally. It was real fun for us to turn up the volume and kick it out roughly, a good marker for our future.”
The song was recorded in the current line-up – Peavy Wagner: vocals, bass ; Victor Smolski: guitars ; Andre Hilgers: drums – in January 2014 at “Studiozwei” by Lars Dietrich.
»The Soundchaser Archives« holds a full run of two CDs (plus Bonus DVD), and will be released on May 23, 2014 via Nuclear Blast.
