PROMETHEUS artwork low res for PRESS section

PROMETHEUS, SYMPHONIA IGNIS DIVINUS

“A gargantuan swing of the symphonic metal pendulum, this is Rhapsody’s grand masterpiece. If music were to be treated like a Hollywood blockbuster, »Prometheus« would break records at the box office.“
POWERPLAY (UK)

“Still more classic and bombast – it’s not an easy-listening album, but if you capture it, it’s a record for eternity!“
ROCK IT (D)

“Finally, Luca Turilli’s RHAPSODY leave Dragon Metal behind them and walk along the red carpet of Cinematic Metal with an epic and genius swing. From Gollum to parapsychologists – this record delivers a wild mix of spiritual questions and bombastic melodies which merge with the modern and electronic level of 2015!”
SOUND INFECTION (D) 

This album crosses any boundary among epic metal, classical music and movie scores. It’s definitely the most bombastic and cinematic Rhapsody’s release to date.” ROCK HARD (IT)

Album of the month
ROCK HARD (FR)

“More epic than Games Of Thrones. Luca Turilli is back with his unique cinematic style.“
CLASSIX (IT)

“Grandeur and multilayered bombast rule more than ever in this masterly blend of power metal and classical music!“
LORDS OF METAL (NL)

“One thing is certain, the only composer on earth who can top Luca Turilli is the man himself… Turilli composes musicscapes beyond comparison. While he will never be held to the unattainable standard of a modern Mozart and Beethoven – the giants who receive 100% critical acclaim whether deserved or not – Luca can easily draw comparisons to modern composers like John Williams, Hans Zimmer and Jerry Goldsmith.”
