The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that German metallers RAGE have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2010.
Rage formed in 1984 as Avenger, releasing an album and EP before switching moniker for 1986â€™s Reign Of Fear. The bandâ€™s sound in their early days placed them at the heart of the burgeoning European thrash/speed metal scene, but as the turn of the decade approached, their music started to become more complex and refined, shifting away from speed metal and towards more melodic and progressively-influenced territory. The changes which were already evident on 1988â€™s Perfect Man continued throughout the 90s and included 1996â€™s Lingua Mortis, which saw the band record with an orchestra. Tours with Running Wild, U.D.O., MotÃ¶rhead and Saxon brought the band greater international recognition and they have gone on to enjoy consistent success at home and abroad while many of their former contemporaries have fallen victim to changing fashions and musical fads. Despite numerous line-up changes, under the guidance of mainman Peavy Wagner, Rage have continued to produce intense and intelligent metal of the highest calibre, as witnessed on their latest album, 2008â€™s Cast In Stone.
