This stuff just keeps getting more huge. Can this band sound any more epic?? Rhapsody has followed a steady progression of making their music increasingly epic with every release, and Power of the Dragonflame just blows everything else away.
Rhapsody is the cheesiest band in the world, but I don't care. They write great songs. We often hear people say that band X or Y is "symphonic" or "classically influenced." Those descriptions apply to Rhapsody more than anyone else. While the music waxes a bit soundtrack sounding, the classical elements are more prevalent than anywhere else in metal. The stratum of orchestral music on top of the ripping power metal is put to use like no one in the business. Rhapsody dishes out speedy power metal, bombastic symphonic keyboards, massive orchestral movements, stratospheric vocals, and epic choirs integrated into one over-the-top musical package.
Rhapsodys heavy use of the "epic choir" dwarfs even Blind Guardian's latest (A Night at the Opera), and that's saying a lot. There's no comparison to army-like choir sound used to create this huge record. The choir-enhanced choruses of songs like the title track and "Steelgods of the Last Apocalypse" (how's that for an ostentatious title?) are so huge they eclipse even the mammoth vocals of "And Then There Was Silence" (the 14-minute epic of A Night at the Opera). I truly hate to compare these bands, and in _no way whatsoever_ to I wish to slight Blind Guardian -- they're a truly talented bunch. I merely wish to lend perspective to the enormous vocal sound here. (Truthfully, Blind Guardian and Rhapsody are not similar bands.)
Honestly, the band's guitarist and principal composer Luca Turilli is one of the best songwriters I've heard.

I have to admit, after 2 listens to the entire album straight through, I must say that this is the best album I've purchased since Opeth's "Blackwater Park." This was the first Rhapsody album I picked up and I was a bit hesitant at first only because people talk about how the music is repetitive and too over the top and whatnot. Needless to say, I dont' believe this.
Rhapsody's music is catagorized as "Epic Hollywood Metal." To anyone who has yet to own this record, DON'T take that catagorization seriously. Associating the word "Hollywood" with this seems to me a huge slap in the face of a great piece of Art. Yes, it is Epic Metal, it does utilize almost every instrument you can think of, from guitars to keyboards to flutes to violins to even choirs in a lot of the songs. If listening to this doesn't transport you back to medieval times, you don't have ears!
Most of the songs on this record are very epic and loud, but the blend of guitars and orchestrations are so perfect in many parts you'll feel that this is the ONLY Rhapsody CD you'll ever need (hard to believe they have 4 other albums besides this!). It's just all together so much fun to listen to, the melodies and driving rhythms are all simply breathtaking. Chorus's, like many power metal bands, are the shining moments on this album, many using grand choirs as I said before and are so uplifting and empowering you won't know what hit you. There is one slow track in the mix that really isn't metal at all, more like a very dramatic opera song, if you can get past the drama and non-metal sound, you'll start to love it.

My first impression of this album was a bit off. I didn't have Rain of a Thousand Flames in hand yet and the difference between this album and Dawn of Victory is HUGE ! Another reviewer here complained that the format is the same, well yeah, I can't argue that. ALL Rhapsody albums start with an instrumental intro and then rage into a powerful, in-your-face charge. That being a given, this album is far heavier than Dawn of Victory. If you did pick up the Rain of a Thousand Flames EP, it won't seem that heavy as Rain really bridges the two albums quite nicely. In my opinion Power of the Dragonflame combines the best of Dawn of Victory and Rain of a Thousand Flames and mixes them flawlessly. Dragonflame doesn't seem quite as rough as Rain was, the songs are much more fluid and focused. The songs also range from extremely heavy to soft ballads, a pace determined by, as well as complimentary to the story of the final chapter of The Emerald Sword Saga.
If you are new to Rhapsody, and are considering this as your first album, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, however be aware this is by far their heaviest album. The final battles of the free world against all the forces of evil take place in the story on this album, meaning there are a lot of very intense songs. Compared to Symphony of Enchanted Lands, much of that albums harmonious melodies have been dropped for agression and power. This fits the story. I just want potential newcomers to be aware that this band has various albums ranging every area of metal.
The intro "In Tenebris" is what you would expect from a Rhapsody intro, powerful and majestic.
"Knightrider of Doom" is a very fast and powerful song and one of my favorites on this album.
