RAGE: New DVD Details Revealed

German power metallers RAGE filmed their show in St. Petersburg, Russia earlier in the year in front of 15,000 fans for an upcoming live DVD, tentatively due on February 23, 2007 via Nuclear Blast. Entitled "Full Moon in St. Petersburg" (cover), the double DVD will consist of the following: DVD 1 will contain the complete concert in St. Petersburg, Russia, including highlights from the group's last album, "Speak of the Dead", along with several oldies and other fan favorites. The audio will be available in 5.1 Surround Sound or in normal stereo sound. According to a posting on the group's web site, "The concert is a unique adventure with an exceptional light show, marking a great contrast to the last DVD, which was recorded in an intimate atmosphere at the Zeche Bochum." Additionally, DVD1 will include the band's last two promotional videos, Brazilian TV footage, and RAGE perfoming live at the "Masters of Rock" festival 2006 in Tschechien.

Meanwhile, DVD2 will consist out of comprehensive bonus material, including a full-length documentary shot on the band's last Russian tour, a detailed documentary recorded on the last European tour, featuring insight into the band's life "on the road" and backstage. In addition, each member of the band has contributed personal footage, such as guitarist Victor Smolski's involvement in car racing and his solo appearances; frontman Peavy Wagner discussing his ice age bone collection and his newest hobby, the casting of skulls; and drummer Mike Terrana conducting a short drum workshop and playing his latest drum solo.

The first edition will be available in a special steelbook with two DVDs and an audio CD, but will also be available as a separate DVD or audio CD. The artwork was once again designed by Anthony Clarkson, who was responsible for the cover of the "Speak of the Dead" album.
