LINGUA MORTIS ORCHESTRA - First Taste Of RAGE Members Orchestral Project; Live Dates Confirmed
May 17, 2013, 6 years ago
On Friday, August 2nd LINGUA MORTIS ORCHESTRA will release their new album titled LMO via Nuclear Blast. The three RAGE musicians Victor Smolski (guitar), Peavy Wagner (vocals and bass) and André Hilgers (drums) have been focused on their opulent orchestral project that can be considered a continuation of 1996’s Lingua Mortis album, back then a true piece of pioneering work.
The first impression of the project has been unveiled in the trailer below:
The entire album was composed by Victor Smolski who cooperated with two orchestras from Spain and Russia, enlarging the number of this mammoth project’s participants to more than 100. Together with long-term co-producer Charlie Bauerfeind (BLIND GUARDIAN, HAMMERFALL among others), Victor Smolski produced and mixed the record in Twilight Hall Studio Krefeld, Germany. The final mastering will be done within the next days.
LMO follows an exciting concept on the burning of witches in Gelnhausen in 1599, written by vocalist Peavy Wagner and based on a true story. Apart from the three Rage musicians, two female vocalists belong to Lingua Mortis Orchestra’s regular cast: Jeannette Marchewka and soprano singer Dana Harnge. Guest vocals were contributed by Henning Basse (ex-METALLIUM), among others.
The cover artwork below was created by Felipe Machado Franco who’s also been responsible for the latest Rage artwork of 21. The band photos were shot by Pia Kintrup.
