Now that the perils of two legal battles are over, the purveyors of epic Italian metal Rhapsody of Fire are back with their long awaited eighth album, The Frozen Tears of Angels. As usual Luca Turilli and crew return with another extravagant and bombastic platter of symphonic power metal. Atmospheric and soaring, and rushing along with bullet train double bass drums, Rhapsody of Fire proves once more that heavy metal can be melodic, heavy, fast and, most importantly, grand and inspiring. Dark Frozen World, Reign of Terror, and the title track are mere examples of the breathless intensity and power of the music and performance. Never forgetting that much of 'larger-than-life' epic metal has a neo-classical foundation, ROF proves it on Danza di Fuoco e Ghiaccio. While it may all seem and sound like grandiose exaggeration, in terms of pure song composition and technical skill, this Rhapsody of Fire at it's best. Love it or hate it, Rhapsody of Fire' mammoth and bombastic The Frozen Tears of Angels is guilty delight for all fans of epic melodic heavy/power metal.

Lyrically I like to use themes that make the listener use his or her imagination, and to give a little of the lessons I've learned in my own life.
