Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody – the self-proclaimed creators of “Cinematic Metal” – are back in business, blowing minds with their sumptuous mix of symphonic and power metal. Maybe the band’s 2012 release ‘Ascending to Infinity’ is an album not even Luca Turilli himself can top, but their latest effort ‘Prometheus: Symphonia Ignis Divinus’ comes pretty close to the bar the Italian composer/guitarist set for himself. We can call the album ‘Prometheus’ for the sake of convenience, but we can’t do the same and call the band “Rhapsody” due to legal complications arising out of Turilli’s pre-split involvement with Rhapsody of Fire/Rhapsody. Apparently, he won’t be putting out any more solo work under just “Luca Turilli” so this group is like the new version of the mind that spawned the beautiful ‘King of the Nordic Twilight’ back in 1999.
Known for creating masterpieces, Metal Wani’s Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi and writer Rishab Mansur had a chat with the legend Luca Turilli. He discusses new album “Prometheus”, songwriting, musical direction, cinematic metal tag, drummer Alex Landenburg, upcoming tours and much more.
