Rhapsody is really a metallic outfit made up of Fabio Lione (vocals), Luca Turilli (acoustic guitar), Alex Staropoli (keyboards), Alessandro Lotta (bass), and Alex Holzwarth (drums). The group was shaped in Italy in the past due ’90s by Turilli and Staropoli. They recruited Daniele Carbonera to serve as their drummer. The music group was already focusing on a debut, 1997’s Legendary Stories, before they linked to Lione (referred to as Joe Terry during his amount of time in the music group Labyrinth), phoning him through the studio to set up for him to become listed on them. The music group adopted up that recording with an EP, entitled Emerald Sword, as well as the recording Symphony of Enchanted Lands the next year. Soon after the discharge of Symphony, Carbonera departed. His alternative was within the personage of Holzwarth. They might not release any longer materials until 2000 by means of an EP (Holy Thunderforce) and an recording (Dawn of Victory). In 2001, the group released Rainfall of one thousand Flames and in 2002, Power of the Dragon Fire. Symphony of Enchanted Lands, Vol. 2: The Dark Magic formula made an appearance in fall 2004; the next year the music group was forced to improve its name, selecting Rhapsody of Open fire, because of copyright issues.
