official site split up. Alex Staropoli and Luca Turilli decided to proceed to a friendly split.
“10 albums released and the end of the saga represent, musically and
lyrically, an important artistic goal finally reached, underlined by the
success of our last release “From Chaos To Eternity”, for which we want
to thank our wonderful fans once again. Now it came the time when new
artistic stimulations need to be found, in respect of both parts’
visions and perspectives and of our longtime friendship”
Due to the latest legal agreements actually in force, Alex Staropoli
will go on with RHAPSODY OF FIRE having, between the others, Fabio Lione
as singer, Tom Hess as guitar player and Alex Holzwarth as drummer. For
the same agreements and the original name’s common ownership, Luca
Turilli will release his future works with a new RHAPSODY band,
including the faithful band members Dominique Leurquin, Patrice Guers
and Alex Holzwarth.
