Since the mid-nineties only one name has ruled the symphonic power metal scene – Rhapsody of Fire. So yeah, they’ve had a couple of changes, but the truth remains the same. Over the years, they’ve told us legendary tales, composed symphonies of enchanted lands, and to this day are the masters of bringing listeners ‘Into the Legend’. Released January 15, 2016, the band’s eleventh full length album promises to be one of the largest and most ambitious project yet. Sure, fans still hold on to classic releases as if they can’t be topped, but Rhapsody of Fire challenges those opinions after spending seven months in four different studios composing and arranging ‘Into the Legend’.
Talking about the album, Metal Wani’s Editor in Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had a chat with Rhapsody of Fire mastermind Alex Staropoli. He discusses new album “Into The Legend”, songwriting, musical direction, concept of the album, lyrical theme, keyboard guitar interplay, Fabio’s vocals, classic Rhapsody albums and how “Into The Legend” stands among the classic ones’, upcoming tours and much more.
