Catchy hooks, a sophisticated orchestration and the distinctive voice of frontman Giacomo Voli make this record album not only a glorious, second piece of the band’s trilogy, which started with their latest 2019- album The Eighth Mountain, but a captivating and true metal masterpiece. The energy of each band member is flowing with precision and fury, opera choirs intersecate with Voli’s superlative vocals in a cinematic orchestral polyphonic escalation towards the highest epic musical peaks.The deeply inspiring solos by guitarist Roby De Micheli and Alex Staropoli’s magic ochestrations once again create the Film Score Metal at its best!
Says Alex Staropoli about the brand new single:
“Chains Of Destiny is an epic, uplifting and intense song, characterized by catchy melodies, fast paced rhythm, great vocals and choirs.” He adds: “We always wanted to shoot a videoclip on the Alps and finally we did it. The amazing rocky mountains displayed in the videoclip are just a few hours away from our home town Trieste. Being able to show how beautiful this territory is to the entire world make us very proud.
We decided to make this shooting happen around Fall, so we would get some low clouds, light rain and wind. It turned out the coldest weather we could imagine. Altitude of almost 2.000 meters on the sea level and temperature touching the zero, it was truly an epic challenge for the band and the amazing crew we had.”
RHAPSODY OF FIRE belongs to one of the most popular metal acts in Europe, who have raised the bar for their genre. They are the undisputable founders of epic symphonic metal, combining Hollywood-like sound landscapes and heavy power metal. The numbers are telling its own tale – with a huge, worldwide fanbase and 2 million sold records to date, while “The Eighth Mountain” entered the German album charts at a phenomenal #22 – RHAPSODY OF FIRE owns its throne in the first league of metal. Their new album will be the unquestionable proof to that.
