RHAPSODY – Tales From The Emerald Sword Saga

Since the opening tones of their sensational debut album, Legendary Tales, Rhapsody have been one of the most unusual phenomena of the current metal scene. The huge range of their creativity, the number of legendary compositions that the Italian band, with their primary members guitarist Luca Turilli and keyboarder Alex Staropoli, have released until 2002 is documented in their “Best Of” album Tales From The Emerald Sword Saga.

RHAPSODY is unique in the true meaning of the word. 16 tracks, the most unusual and the favourites in the Emerald Sword Saga, with a total playing time of over 70 minutes, make Tales From The Emerald Sword Saga to a highly interesting release for fans old and new.

RHAPSODY – Symphony Of Enchanted Lands

Even a thousand words would not be enough to amply describe the phenomina of the Italian speed metal band Rhapsody. The spectrum of their musicality is too wide, displaying so much virtuosity, based on sheer technical and compositional talent. That even an apparently perfect band can go one better has been proved by Rhapsody with their current album SYMPHONY OF ENCHANTED LANDS. This album contains timely Symphonic Metal par excellence, brillantly composed, with diversified arrangements and opulently instrumented. Clearly, experts were at work here – experts who, with an incomparable mixture of intuition, unerring taste and technical ability have produced an album for eternity. Rhapsody melt the past, the present and the future to a homogenous whole and make a theoretical “use by” date unnecessary.

 

Tracklisting:
  •  01. Epicus Furor / 1:14
  •  02. Emerald Sword / 4:21
  •  03. Wisdom Of The Kings / 4:21
  •  04. Heroes Of The Lost Valley / 2:04
  •  05. Eternal Glory / 7:29
  •  06. Beyond The Gates Of Infinity / 7:24
  •  07. Wings Of Destiny / 4:28
  •  08. The Dark Tower Of Abyss / 6:47
  •  09. Riding The Winds Of Eternity / 4:13
  •  10. Symphony Of Enchanted Lands / 13:17

RHAPSODY – Legendary Tales

Recorded at the Gate-Studios in Wolfsburg, Germany, with producer Sascha Paeth (Heavens Gate, Angra), the disc served to define a new standard in classically-influenced metal, fusing compelling musical intricacy with an alluring theme of ancient legend and fantasy. The richly composed collection of 10 songs features the emotional depth of real flutes, harpsichord, cello and choir – no samples, no synthesizers – in addition to guitar, bass, drums and vocals. The result is a sweeping epic that carries the listener away to a faraway place and time.
