As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, original Rhapsody members Luca Turilli and Fabio Lione – along with former Rhapsody members Dominique Leurquin, Patrice Guers and Alex Holzwarth – released their first album as Turilli / Lione Rhapsody, “Zero Gravity (Rebirth And Evolution)” on June 28th.
To celebrate the release, the quintet has unveiled a brand new music video for the record’s title track. Watch and listen here:
On the album Luca Turilli comments: “»Zero Gravity (Rebirth And Evolution)« is surely a special album for all of us. It’s original, various, modern, intense, symphonic and progressive, built around the vocal skills and unique talent of Fabio. In short, the perfect album of transition from the power/speed metal of the past to a new generation of modern symphonic metal offering us new exciting artistic stimulations, wider perspectives and future possibilities. After the farewell tour we accepted to be part of this new adventure only if we could have realized a debut album like this, closer to the music we like to listen to nowadays. We refused any compromise or any easy commercial operation. Time is running fast and in this moment of our life, as we always did until now, we chose to create some new music respecting our heart and soul, as art should always rhyme with heart. Low tuned guitars and riffs à la RAMMSTEIN, vocal arrangements à la QUEEN, the progressive elegance of DREAM THEATER, the powerful yet ethereal and rarified atmospheres of bands like NIGHTWISH and WITHIN TEMPTATION, electronic music, ethnic instruments from different geographic areas of our wonderful planet… no artistic limits anymore. We trust in our beloved fans and their fundamental support for this being just the beginning!”
Fabio Lione adds: “»Zero Gravity (Rebirth And Evolution)« is the album we always wanted to do and a new beginning for us, there’s really a lot of stuff inside and surely something unique and original. Every song offers a different musical adventure, this record is fresh, various, modern, intense, symphonic and progressive. I’m sure most of the listeners will be surprised and will enjoy the variety and the different “colors” we can offer in the songs. Thanks to our fans we were able to have a great production and the perfect album to start our new path with this unique new band and sound!”
