Rage, the '80s metal outfit, returns to the music scene with Unity -- and what a return it is. Although the band released a preceding album this millennium, this one truly shows a new vitality and drive for the group. With this CD, Rage has delivered what may be the best album of the band's career, and possibly one of the best metal albums to come around the bend in a long time. Rage had a solid cult following in the day, and this release shows that the members of this metal machine are ready to reclaim what is theirs. They cover all the stops in terms of metallic musical styles, sometimes hitting several in the course of one song. This one should definitely be a treat for longtime fans of the band and metal aficionados in general.
