RHAPSODY OF FIRE to release Live album on May 3rd!

Tuesday, 26 March 2013

Italian Symphonic Metal kings RHAPSODY OF FIRE will release "Live - From Chaos to Eternity" on May 3rd (USA: May 7th).

It will be available as 2-CD Digipak and as limited 3-Vinyl set. The material (a mixture of old classics and newer tracks) was recorded on the band’s latest European tour (Spring 2012).

Alex Staropoli comments:
"We wanted to deliver a live album that can actually be called a LIVE album. Not one single part was re-recorded in studio as most of bands do. Personally I am always looking for perfection but in the case of this live album I truly believe it had to sound live and maintain both live playing and feeling at 100%."

Vocalist Fabio Lione adds:
"This live album it's the concrete proof that this band is strong and willing to keep playing and producing music for all our fans out there for the years to come".

RHAPSODY OF FIRE signs with AFM Records!

Tuesday, 11 December 2012

AFM Records is proud to announce the signing of legendary Italian Symphonic Power Metal band RHAPSODY OF FIRE to a worldwide deal.

RHAPSODY OF FIRE's signature sound, consisting of Power Metal, soundtrack-like elements and classical influences gave a new meaning to the word "epic" since the release of 'Legendary Tales' in 1997 and was a formula that many bands tried to copy? but never came even close.

Commented the band: "After playing the 'From Chaos To Eternity World Tour 2012' all around Europe, Canada, North America and Latin America, we became even more excited and motivated to continue building our career and creating new exciting music. So now we are finally proud to announce that RHAPSODY OF FIRE signed with a great label such as AFM. That's a new great epic start and we already started working on different projects. More news to follow".



Rhapsody Of Fire extends its biggest world tour ever by adding a few select shows in Central and South America.

“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+ 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”, says Alex Staropoli.

Imagine, You And Us (The Band) Backstage, Spending Super Intense Time Together – You And Us, Face-To-Face With Only A Very Limited Number Of Other VIP Fans... Private And Personal, Lots Of Time And NO Barriers. No B.S.!

Do you want to be one fan in the large crowd of people who has a great time at the concert, or do you want more ... A LOT MORE!?

Sure, you will have fun watching the concert in the audience, but if you want to have the time of your life, become a VIP fan and you won't be missing out on the following:

  • Your VIP Backstage Pass
  • Early Access To The Venue (no long standing in a line outside)
  • Guaranteed First Choice Of A Front Row Spot (since VIP Fans get in the doors before everyone else)
  • Your Private Photo With The Band
  • A Free Surprise Rhapsody Of Fire Merchandise Item
  • Exclusive VIP Discounts And Special Offers On All Other Rhapsody Of Fire Merchandise.
  • Watch The Band Doing The Soundcheck
  • Come Behind The Scenes To See, Hear And Experience The Band In A Private Way That Most People Never Have And Never Will.
  • Share A LOT Of Face-To-Face, Up Close And Personal ‘Quality’ Time With Each And Every Band Member Before The Show! That Means You Will Be Spending At Least An Hour Of Personal Time With The Band, Not Just a Few Short Minutes!

Yes, that's right, for the first time ever, you have the rare opportunity to be one of the lucky few to get it all! Many of you have been asking us for this over many years and now it is finally a reality.

Obviously, there simply is not enough time (or space backstage) to spend significant time with all fans who come to the concert. We do NOT want to give you 'only' a few seconds to meet the band, sign something and then move onto the next person. We do NOT want to be separated from you behind a barricade or a big table. We want to do more. We want to bring you closer to us so that we can get to really know you and you can really get to know us ‘personally’. We want to spend 'real time' with you and have 'real conversations' with you. All of this will happen in a fun and exciting, but also a cool and relaxed environment.

When you get your ticket, you will need to know what to expect the day of the concert. Here’s how it works:

VIP ticket holders (you) can get into the venue at 5:00 PM. You should arrive at the venue at 4:50 PM.

You should go to the main entrance. There will be a sign that says: “Rhapsody Of Fire VIP Tickets”. Our Tour Manager (or other staff person) will come to let you in the door. You MUST present BOTH your normal concert ticket and your VIP ticket to get in.

VIP Ticket holders (you) are welcome to spend time with the band before the show (we want to spend as much time with you as we practically can).

When you do not hesitate to get your VIP tickets right now, you will be going home after the concert with memories of an amazing experience and be one of the VIP fans who is telling your friends how awesome your time was with us instead of just hearing about someone else’s great, unique and unforgettable moments.

Now is the time to get your VIP ticket before they are sold out.

Here is what you need to do right now:

  1. Scroll down.
  2. Choose the city you are coming to from the list below, then click on the "Buy" button.
