And Han will always shoot first.
I always just replace Fire with some other rediculous word that starts with F.
you can go on and on.
I'll take him over the guy they had before.
Rhapsody of Fire is a stupid name. Especially knowing they were just plain Rhapsody before.
Their latest album would not have made a fan of me. It was 'Symphony of enchanted lands,' part I, that got me into them. 'Triumph or agony' has very little similarity, in terms of the spirit of their first few efforts.
But since I am a Rhapsody fan, I have patience for their newer stuff. Some parts of 'The mystic prophecy' are pretty wicked, listen to the 9th to the 12th minute or so.
The title track and number 3 are good, as well as 'Silent dream.'
Agreed. If I was just hearing them for the first time, I'd be bored to tears, but since I'm a big fan I've found some stuff I like about it. I really liked both bonus tracks, too.
But compared to every other Rhapsody album (where almost all the tracks blow me away), I'm still kinda... :Smug: Eh.
They changed their writing style to suit the live setting, that is why the album is like the way it is, expect more tours by them and also more albums like Triumph. The old Rhapsody is dead and with this new writing style, things are easier to play live and less of a headach on Luca.. who is obsessed with his solo projects anyway.
If I wanted solid choir arrangements I'd go down my local church and take in a few hymns (something I'm not likely to do anytime soon). This one can stay on the shelves, can't stand um.
Um... Triumph is made to suit the live setting? Are you crazy? It's all orchestra and choir, and last time I checked, Rhapsody doesn't bring those with them on tour. Dawn of Victory's more of a live-playing kind of album - guitar riffs, and orchestrations that can be condensed to keyboard parts.
To be honest, after Dawn of Victory they started to repeat themselves, so haven't really been interested about their newer stuff. Also there's no Alessandro Lotta anymore, his playing and tone were great.
I don't like it either...
They did start to repeat themselves, but I liked what they were doing, so I never minded. I don't think it's absolutely necessary to revolutionize your band every album, but they did get pretty damn predictable. Power of the Dragonflame was pretty much Dawn of Victory except darker/faster/slightly more symphonic.
My favorite's still Symphony pt. 1.
on a separate note, how come no one told me that Angra just released a new album?
Because I was also unaware of this fact. TREASON!
Anyone listened to Aurora Consurgens yet? I thought it was a HUGE dissappointment following Temple of Shadows. Any thoughts?
I really liked it.
