Rage - Strings to a web (2010)

You can´t really call me a big follower of German metal band Rage, I only own one album with them and it´s "Unity" from 2002 but I like it.
This trio has been around for almost 3 decades and has released 20 albums, so I thought it was about time I checked out their brand new album "Strings to a web".
Excellent musicianship, powerful metal and entertaining songs is what you get here.
They blend melodic metal with progressive song structures and moments of thrash, and in all this the 17 minute long orchestral piece "Empty hollow".
Guitarist Victor Smolski is the main reason why I like this album so much, his six string work is fantastic. He sounds like a young Eddie Van Halen!
Good stuff!
