Biography

As of July 14, 2006, Rhapsody of Fire is the new name of Rhapsody, a band from Italy.

Official statement:
Due to copyright and trademark issues the band formerly known as Rhapsody has changed its name. The band members consider this a great new start, reflecting the emboldened and increasingly grandiose direction that their music has taken. “The power of the dragonflame will burn brighter than ever before,” says guitarist/songwriter Luca Turilli. Keyboardist/songwriter Alex Staropoli adds: “The name Rhapsody of Fire better represents the energy that has always been present in this band and its music.”

Rhapsody of Fire will continue to explore musical fantasy worlds with the precision musicianship and unique symphonic concepts that their fans have come to expect and adore. A new name and renewed vigor ensure that the band still holds the passion and power that have always been associated with their music.

In 2011, following the release of From Chaos To Eternity which concludes the Dark Secret Saga and after 18 years as co-leader of the band, Turilli left Rhapsody of Fire (on good terms) to form a new Rhapsody band, Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody, along with two other members who left with him, Patrice Guers and Dominique Leurquin.
