Story

Rhapsody of Fire is an Italian symphonic metal band from Trieste. The group defines itself as the founder of "Hollywood metal". Initially named Thundercross, then Rhapsody, the band changed its name in 2006 to Rhapsody of Fire.

Their music is characterized by an "epic" instrumentation privileging musical flights of fancy with sometimes warlike, sometimes softer accents. The lyrics of the first five albums tell a single story, an approach that goes even further than the concept album. Some will appreciate the saga and follow the band for its beautiful melodies; others will criticize the band for going too far in the "epic" genre, and losing its creativity by staying in one style.

In 2011, a major lineup change happens: co-founder, songwriter and guitarist Luca Turilli leaves the band to create his own Rhapsody.

In 2016, it's long-time singer Fabio Lione's turn to leave before being replaced by Giacomo Voli.
