More from this Band

This band set standards for a whole genre: Italian Symphonic Power Metal gods RHAPSODY OF FIRE started their career in the mid 90s (first under the banner of Rhapsody), their debut album Legendary Tales (1997) made a huge impact on the scene. The band displayed a mixture that has never done before: classic Power Metal was combined with baroque/classical elements, huge choirs and orchestrations a unique sound that gave a new dimension of epic (almost movie soundtrack-like) feel to the genre and made the band a worldwide fan favorite. The first four albums alone exceeded sales of 1.000.000 copies and put Rhapsody on top of the best-selling and most popular Metal artists worldwide. Due to legal issues the band had to rename from Rhapsody to RHAPSODY OF FIRE in 2003 but continued to release their Symphonic Epic Hollywood Metal constantly. In 2012, band leaders and main composers Alex Staropoli and Luca Turilli decided to go separate ways: while Luca founded Luca Turillis Rhapsody to start a new endeavor even more exploring movie-like sound landscapes - Staropoli, Fabio Lione, Alex Holzwarth, Oliver Holzwarth and new guitarist Roberto De Micheli continue with RHAPSODY OF FIRE, continuing in the more classic and heavy direction that the fans loved so much. After the Live - From Chaos To Eternity live album, released earlier this year, RHAPSODY OF FIRE now finally unleash their
highly-anticipated new studio album Dark Wings Of Steel. Most of the songs have been written by Alex and Manuel Staroli, lyrics were penned by Fabio Lione. Expect an overwhelmingly strong album that recaptures the spirit of masterpieces like Symphony Of Enchanted Lands and Dawn Of Victory, while not denying some fresh new elements.
