Professional guitarist, songwriter, composer, producer, and touring artist with 20 + years of experience, Marcos Rodriguez, is best known for being a former member of the German band RAGE, the critically acclaimed metal institution with fanatically devoted followers.
Rodriguez’s professional career began in 1997 in Venezuela as vocalist and songwriter of the band Torre De Marfil. In the following years, the band recorded their first album self-titled which was critically acclaimed and also the band’s biggest hit.
In 2000 the band released their second album “El Poder Del Lado Oscuro” followed by a live album, but the same year, Rodriguez moved to Tenerife - Spain, to concentrate on his new project: Soundchaser.
With this band, Rodriguez played during a period of 10 years, having great success, allowing them to play at the Sweden Rock Festival in 2009 followed by their first European tour in 2012. In 2013 Rodriguez produced and recorded at his fullness the album “Changes Part I: The Betrayed”.
The band toured in 2014 in several clubs all over Europe which gave them the opportunity to open for the Teutonic German band RAGE on their 30th-anniversary tour.
Also, in 2014 he formed a side project called Diolegacy, an honest tribute to the voice of metal Ronnie James Dio, getting the big responsibility for the vocals and direction of the band.
But the breakthrough happened in 2015 when he joined RAGE, which was a dream come true for him. With this new lineup, Rage released an EP called “My Way”, having major success on the European tour along with Helloween.
In that same year, the band released “The Devil Strikes Again” via Nuclear Blast Records taking Rage to the next level with major record sales from their last 15 years of career.
After a very extended tour, in 2017 Rage released their second album called “Seasons of the Black” taking the band to an even bigger audience with impressive sales, along with a world tour in 15 countries and +50 shows.
In 2020 after the release of the RAGE's album "WINGS OF RAGE" and the European tour, in May of the same year, Marcos quits as the guitar player and co-songwriter of the band to focus on new projects, but still is working for different bands and artists as a producer, guest musician, and songwriter.
