Biography

In 1997 a holy thunder rolled through the international metal scene as the Italian metal band Rhapsody released their debut album, Legendary Tales. Incorporating classical music and baroque sounds, they invented a completely new genre, “Film Score Metal”, in which they blended the styles of movie soundtrack composers such as Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer and Basil Poledouris with ...

Editorial Reviews

We are proud to announce to the world that Rhapsody Of Fire are stronger than ever and finally ready for their glorious come-back! Having just signed a worldwide agreement with the legendary label 'Nuclear Blast they worked very hard to create a great new album, a real masterpiece of power/speed/symphonic metal! Titled 'The Frozen Tears Of Angels', it is produced by Luca Turilli and Alex Staropoli and was mixed and mastered by Sascha Paeth at the Gate Studio in Wolfsburg (Avantasia, Epica and others). Lyrically it's based on the 3rd chapter of 'The Dark Secret Saga'. Telling the story of five brave hearts journey to the frozen northern lands at the unexplored borders of the known world, in order to find a way to stop the demon knight's prophecy. This album and its music will underline the feelings, hopes and fear of the main characters in this new epic adventure. 9 tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back with a Vengeance ! June 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD
After getting a contractual cornholing from Joey Demaio and Magic Circle music, and being stuck in legal limbo for almost half a decade, Rhapsody are back with one of the best releases of their career and certainly the best since 2002s Power of the Dragonflame, this reviewers previous favorite of theirs. Frozen Tears is a near perfect album without a single weak track on it with a nice diversity , you have several fairly straight-up symphonic power metal numbers, such as Sea of Fate and Raging Starfire, an Italian Folk song type number, one of the best ballads they have ever done: Lost in Cold Dreams, but the real highlight of this album is track 4, Reign of Terror, one of the most bombastic, symphonic powerful songs they have ever recorded, it has everything but the kitchen sink: melody, catchy riff,sheer heaviness, symphonic bobasity, and a dash of black metal. This bands lyrics and subject matter have always been, in my opinion, cheesier than all the lasagna in Italy, but I listen to them for their musicianship and musical craftsmanship, both of which are stellar on this release, unlike the last two albums that I found to be lackluster and unmemorable. If you are already a fan you can pick this up without hesitation. If you are a curious metal head, I can tell you this will easily be one of the best releases of 2010, so check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars They are back May 12, 2010

Rhapsody's best release since Dawn of Victory. There are still some of the overly dramatic-narrations in some tracks, but this album delivers some of the best and most memorable songs since legendary tracks like Emerald Sword, Holy Thunderforce, and Dawn of Victory

5.0 out of 5 stars Let it Grow on you, it's Excellent! November 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I will preface this by saying that Rhapsody (of Fire) is probably my favorite band, so I may be a bit biased.

This is one of the those albums that you put in and have to listen to in its correct order, much like most other Rhapsody albums. Unlike other Rhapsody of Fire albums, it does not have an obvious "Glorious Fanfare" song that characterized their sound for many fans, such as Emerald Sword, Wisdom of the Kings, or Power of the Dragonflame. It is different from previous titles, focusing more on a guitar-oriented sound with occasional symphonic backing rather than relying heavy on the symphonic parts. This makes it the band's most technically intense album to date. I'll admit my first time through, I would have given this only four stars, but after listening to it at greater length, the depth and musicianship in the songs really comes through. Every member of the band is showcased in some way, and the solo in "On the Way to Ainor" is probably Turilli's best playing to date.

The US release had two bonus tracks, a purely instrumental track called "Labyrinth of Madness" that blew me away, even the first time, and a re-recording of the second track, "Sea of Fate" slowed down and made into a ballad which Fabio Lione delivers better than any of his previous works and is my favorite Rhapsody ballad to date.

Overall, it's a spectacular album that, while it may take a while to grow on you, certainly deserves a spot in your collection. 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Majestic March 18, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Simply awesome. Full of sweep-picking arpegios, solos, folk-metal-kind passages, very melodic... The kind of thing I like to listen to when I am coding at 3 a.m. and I need the cheer-up for an entire army.

2.0 out of 5 stars To bad February 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Having been left hanging on in quiet desperation for some four years, Rhapsody of Fire finally returned in 2010 to continue "The Dark secret saga", this being part 3. This particular story began in 2004 (when the band were simply known as Rhapsody) on the album "Symphony of Enchanted Lands II - The Dark Secret". It continued a couple of years later with "Triumph Or Agony", the first album released under the name Rhapsody of Fire.

When we last heard of the quest of our heroes, they had found the black book written with the blood of angels which contains "The dark secret", an evil prophesy, and things seemed to be going rather well. Fortunately, this is not in fact the case, and the story must continue. The baddies here are the Disciples of the Black Order, who would very much like to get hold of the book and release Nekron's evil, which it contains. The antidote to all this turns out to be, wait for it, a white book(!) written by goodie Erian. Unfortunately, that book is not to hand, and hence another quest must be undertaken to get hold of it before the bad guys.

Christopher Lee once again returns as narrator, the sleeve notes even containing a "costume credit" for him. He is joined by a number of other actors, including a return of the lovely Susannah York, who sadly died as I was writing this review in January 2011, playing Elion. While Lucca Turilli and Alex Staropoli dominate the song writing as usual, Fabio Lione also gets a credit this time.

Musically, the time between the last release and this has been put to good use, the songs here being notably stronger than those on "Triumph or agony".
