Album notes:
“Prophecy” was recorded during the sessions of this album, but was unable to make the final cut. However, it appeared as a bonus track on the CD of the bands self-titled EP.
The original version of “Gonna Get Close to You” appears on Dalbellos 1984 album Whomanfoursays.
The band was invited to promote Rage for Order by opening for RATT on their Dancing Undercover tour.
Rage for Order was ranked #88 on Kerrang! magazines “100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums Of All Time” in January 1989.
Although not credited, the album cover was designed by Garry Sharpe-Young. It had originally been proposed for a 12″ picture disc, which never materialized, and was used by EMI Records for the album cover without permission. This logo, with subtle changes, would be used by the band throughout their career.

The album kicks off with “Walk In the Shadows”, a guitar-heavy track laden with screaming and vocal harmonies nearly throughout. The song immediately gives metal fans everywhere a new album to gush about. As the album progresses, fans of easy-listening rock also get their piece of the cake through songs like “I Dream In Infra Red” and “The Whisper.” Songs like “Gonna Get Close To You” and “Screaming In Digital” bring a couple of powerful, avante-garde-style breaks to the album through combining electronics, orchestrated music and screaming guitars throughout.

One thing that never changes is their ability to fully utilize both guitarists to their full potential. While they may not outright stick out in some of the slower songs on the album, every song is an aspiring guitarist’s worst nightmare. In several parts of the album, the guitar parts could be seen as outright unorthodox by music lovers everywhere through high amounts of treble and even harmonized chords. The creativity brought to the table by the guitarists is truly outstanding.

The vocals in the album are the most “metal” you’ll ever hear coming out of lead singer Geoff Tate’s mouth. Through belting choruses, changing octaves and power screams, this is truly Tate’s most aggressive work when purely considering the style of vocals used.

With a single, over half a million record sales and a place on the charts everywhere from the Netherlands to Canada, Rage for Order captivated rock and metal fans everywhere through a mix of glam metal, progressive metal and hard rock that keeps the album unique and keeps listeners surprised through an entirely different source of influence found in the album’s writing style at every turn. Through harsh-yet-melodic vocals and progressive, complex guitars, Rage for Order is truly one of the most unique rock albums of its time.
