Image of Rhapsody of Fire


The Italian metal band RHAPSODY OF FIRE is definitely one of the most influential acts of the 90’s. With their mixture of melodic metal and elements of classical music influenced by the cinema soundtracks, the Italians created a complete new genre: The Symphonic Metal.

Guitarist Luca Turilli and keyboarder Alex Staropoli started in 1993 under the name of THUNDERCROSS, influenced by ... Read more in Amazon's Rhapsody of Fire Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking 25 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the first album without the founder member of the band Luca Turilli. These great musicians recorded some 10 albums since 1997 under the name of RHAPSODY and RHAPSODY OF FIRE. All great albums ,with fantastic melodies and arrangements. So what will really happen ,when one of the geniuses of the band leaves. Is is bad or good? We have the answer. The new album is one of the best what came out under this bands name. The production is excellent ,the songs are fresh and exciting uplifting and a pure delight. I am glad there is no harsh vocals any more ,since I am not a fan of that though they did not use it a lot. Fabio has a wonderful voice and I rather listen his pure and clear voice. "Rising From Tragic Flames" and "Silver Lake Of Tears" are the 2 best songs but I love all the tunes on the cd. So RHAPSODY OF FIRE survived the big loss of Luca Turilli and created a true masterpiece.It wont leave my IPOD for a long time. It is a great listen during driving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark wings of steel! 28 Nov 2013
By B
Format:Audio CD
Ever since I heard the teaser on youtube I've been looking forward to this one and it hasn't disapointed!! This has to be one of their best albums that reminds me of the earlier days. They've cut out all the god awful voice acting and gimmicks, the guitars finally sound like they've got some balls. The interlaced keyboard / guitar solos are great too.

Also the lyrics are much better and although still cliché (what do you expect?) are nowhere near as bad and not so horribly literal as the last few albums. I'd say its their least chessiest album yet!

It took a few spins to get fully into it but if you like this sort of thing then buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars No Turilli, Only Staropoli Now... 8 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well. I'm a huge fan of Rhapsody of Fire, and this album is... different to say the least. However, I don't think it's a BAD album. There's certainly a talented albeit different guitarist in Roberto De Micheli when compared to Luca Turilli. There's an abundance of heavy riffs on this album, as opposed to the more sweep picking focused style of Luca. Staropoli really makes his presence known as the keyboards are almost overbearing on this release. This isn't much of a problem though, since the keyboards are brilliantly played. Fabio Lione still sounds amazing on vocals, as I suspect he always will no matter what direction the band takes.

Ultimately, I think the new Rhapsody still needs a bit of time to sort out themselves after losing Turilli, and I foresee them taking a more darker approach to their symphonic metal, and let Turilli's Rhapsody focus more on uplifting, cheerful symphonic metal.

Best tracks on this album include the title track, "Rising from Tragic Flames","Silver Lake of Tears", "Custode di Pace" and "A Tale of Magic".

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very nice 15 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In comparison to previous things, this one is a litle bit boring. A new sound of the group is nice but it lost something. A melody is not juicy or reach enough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best album 8 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album was a dissapoinment, It doesn't sound like Rhapsody Of Fire at all. Tried to listen to it whole and it got boring. It's a GOOD piece, but Staropoli drifted away from the sound to which we are used to (and we love)
