Great idea!

I'll add a link to my Luca Turilli Style lesson:

http://www2.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-gui...esson/index.htm

To say something about them:
The band was started by Turilli and Alex Staropoli who is keyboardist and co-composer in a band! They write all the lyrics and the best side of the band is that they create the albums connected into one single story so if you are interested in lyrics you should start listening from the very first album!

The first part of the saga was finished in the Symphony of The Enchanted Lands album and was called Emerald Sword saga. Symphony of The Enchanted Lands Part 2 started a new saga called Dark Secret Saga.

I really don't know which album is better because they are all amazing!! They are the creators of Film Score Metal style of music and are proud flag-bearers of this whole style!!

The music is very powerful, great arrangements, singing, playing!

If you want to get to know band better and in it's whole greatness - get their first DVD release in July this year called "Vision From The Enchanted Lands".

Their last album is "Triumph Or Agony" and features amazing orchestral arrangements and production quality! If you have any questions about them go ahead and ask here - i have all the answers!!

Exactly! No band sounds like Rhapsody! Just like you said - they are one of a kind!

Also you can notice how experienced they become with each new album! Their arrangement skills grow insanely. And seems like they never lack new chord progressions and melodies! Amazing!

They sound pretty cool but do they have any instrumental songs because I cant stand the vocals at all.

I think they have 2 songs without vocals but only 1 of them is actually a piece for guitar!

They are the only band in which i like vocals from the beginning to the end! smile.gif Matter of tastes again!

I have their first 3 albums. I was very surprised when I bought the first one. I bought it without having listened any song and I discovered that it was perfect. I like Legendary Tales and Symphony of enchanted lands. I didn't find some new material in the following albums , I think that they only expanded thier unique style.

Their material is a story and it is damn good constructed! Also they improve orchestrations with each album! And you should listen to all their albums because they are amazing! Especially the "Dark Secret" and "Triumph Or Agony".

And imagine the start of the NEXT STORY!! They are gods of their style!! There are a lot of bands trying to imitate them but what other people do is a POWER METAL - and Rhapsody is FILM SCORE METAL! And they are the only band who fully understands the meaning of it!

The Next Story?

Wow....I cant even imagine that, it would be awesome i know that though smile.gif I Dont see Alex Or Luca being short on ideas!

Imagine if they made a movie based on "The Symphony Of Enchanted Lands", and it was actually done well! That would be like 20 movies long smile.gif
