Luca Turillis Dreamquest is the fulfillment of a dream that Luca has had in mind for many years and he is looking forward to the opportunity to perform Dreamquest material in a live forum as soon as possible. The music on Lost Horizons combines powerful metal instrumentation with angelic, operatic, female vocals to create a sound that might best be described as 'Symphonic Electro-Metal'. The first single Virus, is a prime example of the majestic musical flavour that Dreamquest is made of, while the operatic Sospiro Divino showcases the boundless possibilities presented by this exciting new band. Although favourable comparisons to popular acts are inevitable, make no mistake: Luca Turillis Dreamquest is a fresh and unique experience

I feel lucky that I live in the same age as Turilli and can look forward to his next work and appreciate his developement as a composer. Taking risks is what great artists do and he must continue doing so.
The vocals are simply amazing and the song writing and composition are truly brilliant.
As I mentioned in my title, I would kill for a second cd with the exact cast. The song writing, music, vocals, composition, everything is just simply awesome. I found out about this CD via Pandora - after 3 thumbs up from the same CD cover, I decided to research and purchased. Also, I must say the cd cover art is amazing in itself.
Luca Turilli has essentiall released three simultaneous albums:
Luca Turilli - The Infinite Wonders Of Creation
Dreamquest - Lost Horizons
Rhapsody - Triumph Or Agony
Female vocals in the metal world will not fit everyone's tastes and I'm sure there will be many Rhapsody fans that are not into this kind of album but those who give a fair chance will be pleasantly suprised in the long run.
As far as highlights I have to mention the jaw dropping opener VIRUS. This is one of the more techno songs but at the same time one of the heaviest and most close to power metal. Really, really amazing song you have to hear. Other highlights for me are the almost dance club style techno pop feel good song ENERGY and the slower but equally amazing DOPHIN'S HEART which contains some stellar opera vocals that send chills up and down your spine.
While the Rhapsody release and the Luca Turilli release are both mild disappointments compared to their predecessors, this new Dreamquest release is almost enough to make me forgive.
For me, this truly is Luca's masterpiece. On so many levels, he has proven himself a modern composer with all the sensibilities to infuse classical with contemporary and create something original and intriguing. For a start, he approaches this album as more of a keys man, rather than a fretboard tickler (sorry, no money shots). Also, the fact that there is a female vocalist definitely helps to further set this apart from Luca's previous projects.
Metal fans beware: I would not really consider this to be a metal album. There are a lot of opera-style moments, but for the most part, it is a richly layered and complex pop album. If you are open to musical variety, and can enjoy music in a part of your house where your roommates can't listen in, then you should give this a try. It's certainly worth it.
I have seen the genre of this cd be called symphonic goth metal and yesterday saw it called electro symphonic power metal. Either way, it's great!
This cd is epic symphonic powermetal with a dark gothic tone. It's probably not a typical goth album since there is no screaming. The vocalist on the album is female and she is classically trained and actually sings, no typical metal yelling, she is actually singing and a times it is operatic and sings opera style. Her singing floats on top of the music perfectally. The actual music is not the hard heavy style you may think. It is neoclassical epic metal style. If your in to this type of thing or like femal vocalist on metal tracks than this is great. Luca Turilli is very famous for having an epic sound and this album doesn't dissapoint. Sometimes looking at really good reviews some claim that the person who left a great review "works for them" or is "just trying to help sell the alnum". This is a real review from a metal fan. jfeiwfhrevhnuivpi
