Rhapsody of Fire Split Up

http://www.nuclearblast.de/en/label/...dly-split.html

Quote:
After 15 years of friendship, hard work and big passion, fully invested in the creation of symphonic music and an epic saga that will remain in the history of heavy metal, Alex Staropoli and Luca Turilli decided to proceed to a friendly split.

“10 albums released and the end of the saga represent, musically and lyrically, an important artistic goal finally reached, underlined by the success of our last release “From Chaos To Eternity”, for which we want to thank our wonderful fans once again. Now it came the time when new artistic stimulations need to be found, in respect of both parts’ visions and perspectives and of our longtime friendship” say Luca and Alex.

Due to the latest legal agreements actually in force, Alex Staropoli will go on with RHAPSODY OF FIRE having, between the others, Fabio Lione as singer, Tom Hess as guitar player and Alex Holzwarth as drummer.

For the same agreements and the original name’s common ownership, Luca Turilli will release his future works with a new RHAPSODY band, including the faithful band members Dominique Leurquin, Patrice Guers and Alex Holzwarth.

Alex says: “While wishing the best to Luca and his new band, I want to tell you that Fabio and myself feel motivated and stronger than ever and that RHAPSODY OF FIRE are already planning a great worldwide tour. More information regarding the new bass player and the new second guitar player will follow. Stay tuned!”

The website http://www.rhapsodyoffire.com will remain the glorious RHAPSODY OF FIRE website at all effects and http://www.algalordchronicles.com the official fan club of RHAPSODY OF FIRE only.

In the future, if you want to know more about the new band of Luca Turilli, please check his personal website at http://www.lucaturilli.com

Damn... I only saw them for the first time in June. I have to admit Fabio looked miserable for the whole show (but he performance was astonishing).

Although, when you read it, they haven't really split up. Two guys have left and the others are carrying on.

Fuck. I would have loved to see Rhapsody of Fire with Luca, but at least they're not completely calling it quits.

Gotta be honest, he added nothing when I saw them. Totally anonymous. They're the Fabio Leone show live.

Damnit. Luca is the meat and bones behind their music.

Really a shame to hear this, I wonder if the replacement they have will continue on with them and can meet the Neo-classical levels left behind by Luca. They haven't played Florida since 2006, hope they come back soon.

I guess that's a bit disappointing, but it makes me feel quite relieved - my experience of seeing Rhapsody of Lione in the future doesn't sound like it will be some horrible parody of their original shows. Definitely hope to see them live. Luca is one hell of a musician, though.
