RHAPSODY OF FIRE To Release ‘Into The Legend’ Album In January

RHAPSODY OF FIRE To Release 'Into The Legend' Album In JanuaryItalian symphonic metal kings RHAPSODY OF FIRE will release their new studio album, “Into The Legend”, in January 2016 via AFM Records.

Comments RHAPSODY OF FIRE keybaordist Alex Staropoli: “After two years of intense work, including composing and arranging, after seven months spent in four different studios, this huge and ambitious production is coming to an end. We are right now mixing the songs, going through hundreds and hundreds hours of recordings to make an album that will feature over 65 minutes of breathtaking music, an album that will gather and exploit the best elements this band ever had in a modern way, and to build a musical landscape that will have no equals in the world’s heavy metal scene.”

RHAPSODY OF FIRE in June 2013 “respectfully” parted ways with their American guitarist Tom Hess due to “philosophical differences.”

RHAPSODY OF FIRE released a live album, “Live – From Chaos To Eternity”, on May 3, 2013 in Europe and May 7, 2013 in the USA via AFM Records. It was made available as two-CD digipak and as limited three-vinyl set. The material (a mixture of old classics and newer tracks) was recorded on the band’s European tour in spring 2012.

Staropoli and RHAPSODY OF FIRE guitarist Luca Turilli in 2011 announced their decision to go their separate ways.

Due to legal reasons, Staropoli is continuing under the RHAPSODY OF FIRE name. Turilli, on the other hand, is making his efforts available under the RHAPSODY moniker (RHAPSODY OF FIRE‘s original name), in which he is joined by guitarist Dominique Leurquin, bassist Patrice Guers, singer Alessandro Conti (TRICK OR TREAT) and drummer Alex Landenburg (AT VANCE, ANNIHILATOR, MEKONG DELTA, STRATOVARIUS).
