“The Devil Strikes Again”, the new Ivan K. Maras-directed video from German metallers RAGE, can be seen below. The song is the title track of the band’s new album, which will be released on June 10 via Nuclear Blast (July 8 in the U.S. through Metalville). The CD was recorded in September/October 2015 at Megafon Studios (Burscheid, Germany) and at Soundchaser Studios (Zandhoven, Belgium). The production was handled by Marcos Rodriguez and Peter “Peavy” Wagner, while Dan Swanö (MARDUK, OPETH, DISSECTION, KATATONIA) took care of the mixing and mastering at Unisound Studios (Grefrath, Germany). The cover artwork was created by Karim König.

Commented RAGE bassist/vocalist Peavy Wagner: “This is actually related to the song ‘Sent By The Devil’ from the ‘Black In Mind’ album of ’95. Also the text deals with some evil obsessions that take control over your life more and more to the point when you cannot resist any longer, have a deep look into yourself and you will understand. And of course the composition brings up some reminiscences without just copying.”

“The Devil Strikes Again” will be made available as a 3CD digipack (limited to 1,000 copies; Nuclear Blast mailorder exclusive), 2CD digipack, and 2LP (black, white). All editions contain six bonus tracks (including three cover versions: “Bravado” by RUSH, “Slave To The Grind” by SKID ROW and “Open Fire” by Y&T). The 3CD digipack also features a bonus live CD from the latest European tour with HELLOWEEN.

RAGE released a four-track EP on January 22 to coincide with the band’s tour with HELLOWEEN.

“My Way” contained four tracks, including two re-recorded versions of songs from RAGE‘s 1995 album “Black In Mind” and a brand-new song in both English and Spanish.

“My Way” was the first RAGE release to feature the band’s latest additions, Marcos Rodriguez (guitar) and Vassilios Maniatopoulos (drums)

Marcos Rodriguez was born in Venezuela and currently resides in Antwerpen, Belgium. The guitarist is a die-hard fan of RAGE who met Peavy on RAGE‘s 30th-anniversary tour when his band SOUNDCHASER provided support on parts of the trek.

Vassilios “Lucky” Maniatopoulos has so far primarily made an appearance as the vocalist of the band TRI STATE CORNER. However, the former drum student and drum technician of former RAGE and current TRI STATE CORNER/REFUGE drummer Christos Efthimiadis is also longtime friend of Peavy‘s.
