what can i say, wow, this is awesome. Combining power metal and ochestral music like never before, Rhapsody have created a truly epic, thrilling sound. there's no real good way to describe it, you just need to hear this album. kind of like the lord of the rings soundtrack if you added a 6 piece metal band and some Bruce Dickenson esque vocals. There's some great fast tracks like 'emerald sword' and 'wisdom of the kings' that have these old skool galloping verses and break into epic mutli layer choruses that really get your blood pumping before breaking into some full blown symphony stuff. there's also some celtic jig stuff and the fantastic title track, with 14 minutes of prog medieval metal greatness. we're deep in nerd territory. songs about magic swords, dragons and dark lords. while i don't mind being a nerd alot of the 'cool metal goth emo post-metalcore poser' people won't like this

all the better i say. metal isn't ment to be about getting dumped by your girlfriend.

as you can tell, i love this band

but there's a few things which hold it back from being a classic. for one, i think that they got the balance a bit wrong and its a tad too high on orchestra and a tad short on metal. also, the overblown american narrator gets really annoying. But Rhapsody are great and this cd is a good way to introduce yourself to their sound.

Describing itself as 'Epic Hollywood Symphonic Metal', Rhapsody is the ultimate album for people who couldn't give a f*** about being cool and trendy. Yes, some parts of it are embarrassing (eg most of the spoken word passages) but the arranging, time and effort which has been put into this album is incredible. The first track, Epicus Furor, sets the tone perfectly, with a full on orchestra and choir raising the tension until the listener is hit by the epic speed anthem Emerald Sword. The other epic tracks are definetely Wisdom of the King (with it's fantastic guitar/violin trade off), the bombastic Eternal Glory, the prog-metal of Beyond the Gate of Infinity and the 10 minute title track. While the only gripe may be that the speed riff tends to sound the same, the actual arranging by guitarist Luca Turilli is unbelievable, and the technical ablitity of the band is superb. If you're not a pretentious student who only listens to Indie and dance music, or a rap metal fan who only likes it because it's fashionable, then Rhapsody is most certainly for you.

Rhapsody are a rather low-key band. But this is one of their greatest accomplishments. The band melds serene classical music and opera-like vocals with melodic and often fast paced metal. "Emerald Sword" is a brilliant example. The song begins with dramatic, booming drums and a strong chorus in its prelude, "Epicus Furor" and breaks into a storm of lightning metal guitar from the band's prodigy guitarist, Luca Turilli. This is mixed and followed by various Musical instruments finally breaking into a titanic rush of double-kickdrum drumming and Ukranian choirs followed by the Powerful voice of the band's singer Fabio Lione. The album has countless good songs, including "Wisdom of the Kings", "Eternal Glory", "Dark Tower of the Abyss" and the brilliant, ten minute long "Symphony of Enchanted Lands". The album holds many strengths, the band themselves boast incredible talent, The songs are well structured and individually unique and some of the added instrumental parts give songs incredible strength and feeling. The only letdown of the album is the large proportion of "cheesiness" it holds. It's concept is an imaginary fantasy world called Algalord, centred on a "Mighty Warrior" who's duty it is to save the land... in addition there are ridiculous narrations between some of the songs which make you cringe as an over-dramatic American voice tells the story. Overall it is definitely worth buying, in some cases a "must-have" but it appeals only to certain types of Metallers.

I took a chance on this album after hearing a sample track, I had heard all the criticisms and to be truthful they couldn't have been listening to the music. The Metal on offer here is above all contempory Symphonic bands, People talk about the Fantasy subject (which is here) but the lyrics are not at the forefront of the music, and they are never to the detrement of it; the orchestral arrangements are worthy of any great composer, and I hope that guitarist Luca Turilli accomplishes his dream of film soundtracks. If you only buy one Rhapsody album, then buy this one.
