RHAPSODY OF FIRE: Italian Language TV Report Available

A two-minute Italian-language TV report on the current European headlining tour by Italian symphonic metal masters RHAPSODY OF FIRE can be seen below.

RHAPSODY OF FIRE will embark on the North American leg of its “From Chaos To Eternity” world tour in late May.

The first official photo of the new lineup of RHAPSODY OF FIRE can be seen below.

RHAPSODY OF FIRE 2012 is:

Fabio Lione – Vocals
Alex Staropoli – Keyboards
Roberto De Micheli – Guitar
Tom Hess – Guitar
Oliver Holzwarth – Bass
Alex Holzwarth – Drums

The new RHAPSODY OF FIRE lineup made its live debut on April 6 at the PPM Fest at the Lotto Mons Expo in Mons, Belgium.

Staropoli and RHAPSODY OF FIRE guitarist Luca Turilli last year announced their decision to go their separate ways.

Due to legal reasons, Staropoli will continue under the RHAPSODY OF FIRE name. Turilli, on the other hand, will make his future efforts available under the RHAPSODY moniker (RHAPSODY OF FIRE‘s original name), in which he will be joined by guitarist Dominique Leurquin, bassist Patrice Guers, singer Alessandro Conti (TRICK OR TREAT) and drummer Alex Landenburg (AT VANCE, ANNIHILATOR, MEKONG DELTA, STRATOVARIUS).

RHAPSODY OF FIRE‘s latest album, “From Chaos To Eternity”, was released in North America on July 12, 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records. Described by the band as “the natural evolution” from 2010’s “The Frozen Tears Of Angels”, the CD marks RHAPSODY OF FIRE‘s final release based on the fantasy saga started in 1997 with the group’s debut album, “Legendary Tales”.

RHAPSODY OF FIRE recently extended its biggest world tour ever by adding a few select shows in Central and South America.

Commented Staropoli: “This is our biggest world tour ever with concerts in Europe, North America, Central America and South America. The energy, enthusiasm and excitement on this tour is far greater than it has ever been for us over our past 15-plus-year history! RHAPSODY OF FIRE is stronger than ever and the reviews of all the concerts we’ve already done on this tour are proof of that. For the first time ever, we’re also giving our Latin American fans the opportunity to spend an incredible amount of personal time with us face-to-face. We did this in Europe for the first time this year and it was truly great to bring us very close to some of our biggest fans in a very personal way.”
