Luca Turilli's Rhapsody to release new album this SummerItalian "cinematic" metallers Luca Turilli's Rhapsody will release their new album in June/July via Nuclear Blast Records. The Cd will once again be produced by Luca Turilli and it will be recorded and mixed by Sebastian RÃ¶der at the Backyard Studios in Kempten, Germany.
Says Luca Turilli'S Rhapsody guitarist Dominique Leurquin: "After the great success of 'Ascending To Infinity', for which we'll never stop thanking our supporters and the international press, a new opus of cinematic metal will soon see the light and once more the wonderful and versatile voice of Alessandro Conti, ranging from heavenly and crystalline high tones to the dramatic power of an operatic tenor, will surprise most of the people while painting musical landscapes of rare beauty!"
In other news, Luca has announced the formation of a new music production company through which he will offer his services as an arranger, specializing in the creation of epic/orchestral/modern arrangements of all styles, but also as the composer and artistic producer for all kinds of music (metal, rock, pop, classical, opera, folk, etc.) and for the media-related world (Tv, cinema, videogames, etc.).
Says Luca: "In the last years, I always dreamed of starting a second business activity in connection with cinema and other important media. I finally decided to take the big step in this direction. I am actually selecting some top-level partners to offer and extend the services of my company to a worldwide level."
In August 2011, Rhapsody Of Fire guitarist Luca Turilli and keyboardist Alex Staropoli announced their decision to go their separate ways.
Due to legal reasons, Staropoli is continuing under the Rhapsody Of Fire name. Turilli, on the other hand, is making his efforts available under the Rhapsody moniker (Rhapsody Of Fire's original name), in which he is joined by guitarist Dominique Leurquin, bassist Patrice Guers, singer Alessandro Conti (Trick Or Treat) and drummer Alex Landenburg (At Vance, Annihilator, Mekong Delta, Stratovarius).
Luca Turilli'S Rhapsody's new album, "Ascending To Infinity", entered the German Media Control chart at the position No. 32.
