Commented singer Alessandro Conti: “Well, there are no words to describe our inner feelings for this historical result. We want to virtually embrace all our German brothers and sisters for what we were able to achieve thanks to their enormous and unique support. The artistic sincerity of this album is endless and this result shows once more that true emotions always win!”
Added guitarist Dominique Leurquin: “Actually, we are preparing ourselves for the European leg of the ‘Ascending To Infinity Cinematic World Tour‘ this fall. You should not miss it as each concert of this ambitious tour won’t be just a typical show but instead a spectacular live event, full of legendary songs, visual surprises and unique atmospheres. Mostly important it will be a great chance for us to meet all of you, in Germany, all around Europe, in many countries where we never played before, and later also in the rest of the world. Therefore see you soon, dear friends, and be ready for the ultimate cinematic live experience!”
The “Dark Fate Of Atlantis” video was filmed in Stockholm, Sweden by Swedish director Owe Lingvall of Dreamday Media (THE RASMUS, KAMELOT‘s “The Great Pandemonium”). The song comes off LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY‘s new album, “Ascending To Infinity”, which will be released on June 22 via Nuclear Blast. The song was edited and made shorter for the video while on the CD it will appear in its original version of 6 minutes and 29 seconds.
In August 2011, RHAPSODY OF FIRE guitarist Luca Turilli and keyboardist Alex Staropoli announced their decision to go their separate ways.
Due to legal reasons, Staropoli will continue under the RHAPSODY OF FIRE name. Turilli, on the other hand, will make his future efforts available under the RHAPSODY moniker (RHAPSODY OF FIRE‘s original name), in which he will be joined by guitarist Dominique Leurquin, bassist Patrice Guers, singer Alessandro Conti (TRICK OR TREAT) and drummer Alex Landenburg (AT VANCE, ANNIHILATOR, MEKONG DELTA, STRATOVARIUS).
