Victor Smolski’s Hands Are Tied as the Rush Of Death approaches for Almanac

Victor Smolski was the guitarist of the German heavy metal band Rage from 1999 until 2015, also playing with Mind Odyssey and Lingua Mortis Orchestra. Having released a couple of solo albums, Smolski formed his symphonic metal band Almanac in 2015.

Victor Smolski’s Almanac are set to unleash their third studio album, “Rush Of Death”, on March 6th, 2020, via Nuclear Blast. Today, the band release a live video for “Hands Are Tied” taken from the bonus live DVD. Check out the live video here:

Victor states: “As a bonus DVD for our new album release “Rush Of Death”, we compiled an extensive package of live material from our tours in 2019: From atmospheric recordings at the sold-out club show in Belarus to the bombastic concert at the Jeonju Stadium in Korea, which was our absolute highlight of 2019. There will also be some great impressions of ALMANAC shows at the Metalfest Open Air in Pilsen/CZ and the Big Gun Festival in Moscow/RUS. All recordings are a 100% live – without any touch ups or corrections (which is quite rare on today’s DVD market). We hope you have fun listening and watching our handmade music!”

Almanac won’t be resting on their laurels with live shows either – they’re set to present tracks from “Rush Of Death” to fans in spring 2020, when the band joins Finnish horror metal maniacs Lordi on their European tour.
