Although the name of the album is "Into the Light", the name of the group assembled here - The Nuclear Blast All Stars - is much more indicative of the awesome power these tracks unleash. Without diving too much into the actual analysis of the music and lyrics, the feel of this album is truly wonderful for any fan of metal.

Most of the songs are written and played by the current members of Rage. Their efforts are fully rewarded by the collective contributions of some of metal's most renowned vocalists. All of the songs rock, but what's an even better pleasure is the conscious effort to pair up singers with songs written and delivered right to their respective wheelhouses. Tobi Sammet (from Edguy) gets a melodic power metal song, while Schmier (from Destruction) screams along perhaps the heaviest song on the album, and so on and so forth. Even better than that, all of the guest singers deliver the quality one would hope for and expect ; No one tanks it or sings via contract or obligation. The liner notes reveal that as much as Victor Smolski was happy to have everyone there, the singers were just as honored to be picked.

It can be argued then that this compilation is all the more special because of this mutual respect. What isn't verified is whether all of these songs were specifically written for this album.
If so, then "Into the Light" is much, much more than just a compilation album. Again, credit and thanks must be given to Smolski, the man who not only put this project together but also wrote the songs in all their variety.
A final note : Smolski plays all the guitar and bass tracks on most of the songs (there are a couple of guest musicians, but that's minimal), so… when you hear the bass solo and lead solo on "Terrified" - it's from the same guy.

No opinion here, other than those two solos were pretty wicked. Your favorite song will also most likely be based on which vocalist you enjoy hearing most, too. Of course, when you indeed have an all-star lineup like this, there are no bad tracks. For any fan of metal, Nuclear Blast All Stars' "Into the Light" is quite a special event to experience.
