RHAPSODY OF FIRE’S NEW SONG IS APPROPRIATELY RIDICULOUS
When I want power metal that’s fast, over-the-top, full of shred, searing keyboards and soaring vocals, I turn to Rhapsody of Fire. No one does it better. “Tornado,” the new track from the upcoming Rhapsody of Fire album From Chaos to Eternity, which comes out July 12th on Nuclear Blast, delivers 100% in that regard. It reminds me of the early material that first got me into the band back when they were just called Rhapsody. Maybe that’s because this album marks the end of an era for the band, as explained in a press release:
This historical release will end the RHAPSODY sagas once and for all after 15 years of fantasy-oriented lyrics. For the last time, we’ll hear Sir Christopher Lee narrating in one of our albums the last dramatic events of a legendary tale started in 1997 and told through two different sages and ten full-length albums. We are surely very sad but we also know that for this same reason, the upcoming release will remain in the history of the band for its artistic importance and unique epic!
Hmm, ok… whatever. I’m just in it for the sick tunes brah! Power Metal Party on! Stream “Tornado” from Rhapsody of Fire’s Facebook page.
