LUCA TURILLI'S RHAPSODY: A NEW ADVENTURE BEGINS

LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY

“We are very proud to announce that the new LT’S RHAPSODY album will be released in JUNE/JULY 2014 by NUCLEAR BLAST. Once again it will be produced by me and it will be recorded and mixed by SEBASTIAN ROEDER at the BACKYARD STUDIOS of Kempten (Germany)” states Luca Turilli.

Dominique Leurquin, the guitar player, adds: “After the great success of ASCENDING TO INFINITY, for which we’ll never stop thanking our supporters and the international press, a new opus of cinematic metal will soon see the light and once more the wonderful and versatile voice of Alessandro, ranging from heavenly and crystalline high tones to the dramatic power of an operatic tenor, will surprise most of the people while painting musical landscapes of rare beauty!”.

Luca continues, spending a few words about his new upcoming project too: “In the last years I always dreamed of starting a second business activity in connection with cinema and other important media. I finally decided to take the big step in this direction and in a short time I will present my new music production company. Through it I will offer my services as arranger, being specialized in the creation of epic/orchestral/modern arrangements of all styles, but also as composer and artistic producer for all kinds of music (Metal, Rock, Pop, Classical, Opera, Folk, etc.) and mainly for all the media-related world (TV, Cinema, Videogames, etc.). I am actually selecting some top-level partners to offer and extend the services of my company to a worldwide level. More details about the same company and the new album will follow soon!”

After a summer devoted to work, work and more work, LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY are proud to announce that all is proceeding perfectly with the production of their Ascending To Infinity Cinematic World Tour. Luca Turilli and Alessandro Conti just came back from the Backyard Studios of Kempten (Germany) after having recorded a new session of epic choirs exclusively for it.

Luca explains: “As in our shows we will also play some of the very old Rhapsody songs, rarely or never played until now, we decided to re-record the choirs for those same songs in order to present them on stage with the best sound quality possible. Moreover we decided to add a great choral impact to some songs that originally were not featuring a choir”.

Alessandro adds: “A couple of days ago we met in Germany some of the singers who already performed on the new album Ascending To Infinity and, thanks to their unique vocal power, we gave new energy and new life to those glorious and legendary tracks that made the history of Rhapsody!”

The singers who performed in the new choral session are: the Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody frontman Alessandro Conti, the singer and photographer Johnny Eisprung; Matthias Stockinger, singer and actor actually performing in the musical Evita, and the AOR legend DAN LUCAS, who sold 1.4 million copies with the super single ‘Heart Of America’.

THE NEW SINGER OF LT’S RHAPSODY FINALLY REVEALED+EXCLUSIVE EXCERPTS FROM THE NEW ALBUM

March 30th, 2012

The below was posted to LT’s Rhapsody official page today.

 

“Hi to all,

today is a great and very important day for our band. We are finally proud to present the new singer of LT’S RHAPSODY to the world, the person who, thanks to his unique vocal talent, will contribute to the artistic perspectives of the band in the years to come.

The secret is finally revealed: the new singer is Italian and his name is ALESSANDRO CONTI.

LT Rhapsody:  ALESSANDRO CONTI

LT Rhapsody: ALESSANDRO CONTI

“Alessandro is the singer of our band since many months already but we wanted to present him in the way he deserves, and this means: through his voice!” says Luca Turilli, and adds: “We wanted to find a singer able to sing in different ways and offering different “colors”. Such ability is fundamental for me as in every RHAPSODY album I like to compose different styles of songs, passing from the most cinematic and epic impact of some songs to the operatic majesty of other ones, from celestial voices to more aggressive tones. Alessandro was just the best choice in this sense as, in between the multitude of all his vocal colors, he has a great high tone but also an operatic approach that makes the difference. He studied at the “Corale Lirica Rossini” of Modena as first tenor, the same school attended by the great and unforgettable Luciano Pavarotti”.

The first official statement of Alessandro as member of LT’S RHAPSODY:

“I am very enthusiastic to be the new voice of RHAPSODY and the person the band was searching for. ASCENDING TO INFINITY is just an amazing piece of art and maybe not even the word “epic” is enough to describe its emotional power… what is sure is that I am really proud to be part of it. Now I am looking forward to meeting all the existing and new RHAPSODY fans around the world. See you soon!”.

The new album is entitled ASCENDING TO INFINITY and will be released on JUNE 22 by NUCLEAR BLAST.

LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY have unveiled the new cover artwork of the upcoming album Ascending To Infinity, due out on June 29th in Europe via Nuclear Blast (North American release date to be confirmed).

An update from Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody reads as follows:

“Hi to everybody. We all know that many of you were waiting for the news about our new singer and it is true that his name was supposed to be revealed right today. But as the mix of the album already started and the result of his artistic performance on Ascending To Infinity is simply brilliant, then we decided to not present our singer by simply revealing his name. Instead, with the next news of Tuesday, March 27, we’ll present him in the best way possible, the one we know you surely prefer. This means that on that day you will have the possibility to discover him and his talent listening to some excerpts from our new album, exclusively from our new band’s website.”

With over 60 minutes of music, the tracklisting to Ascending To Infinity is as follows:

‘Quantum X’
‘Ascending To Infinity’

LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY: NEW ALBUM DETAILS & STUDIO UPDATE

January 30th, 2012
LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY

LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY In the Studio

Italian composer & guitar shredder Luca Turilli reports that LT’s RHAPSODY’s new album will be entitled Ascending To Infinity and will be released this summer in North America by Nuclear Blast.

With over 60 minutes of music, the track listing to Ascending To Infinity is as follows:

01 – QUANTUM X

02 – ASCENDING TO INFINITY

03 – DANTE’S INFERNO

04 – EXCALIBUR

05 – TORMENTO E PASSIONE

06 – DARK FATE OF ATLANTIS

07 – FANTASIA GOTICA

08 – CLASH OF THE TITANS

09 – OF MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL AND LUCIFER’S FALL

I.                    ALMA MUNDI

II.                 FATUM MORTALIS

III.               IGNIS DIVINUS
Luca checks in with fans about the production that’s currently happening in Kempten, Germany at Sebastian Roeder’s Backyard Studios:

“Hi to everybody!  The production is proceeding perfectly and my friend Sebastian and I are having a great time while working on the new album here in the cold Kempten, with the snow visiting us from time to time.  Nice atmosphere indeed!

“As you know, in December Alex Holzwarth recorded all his drum parts.  Right now we just ended the recording of the new singer and all the choirs.  In some days, it will be time for Dominique [Leurquin, guitarist] and Patrice [Guers, bassist] to record their parts while I will soon go back to Italy.  There, in my private home studio, I will record the rest of the rhythmic and lead guitar parts, the keyboard, and the piano and will finalize the last orchestral arrangements for the mix.  All in all, the entire studio production of the new album Ascending To Infinity will last around four months, but this is normal considering the artistic ambition of the release, the rich presence of choirs and orchestra, the people involved, and the record company’s unique support.

“If you ask me which has been one the most exciting moments of the studio production, I can tell you that recording the new LT’s RHAPSODY singer has been really amazing.  I will use the words of my friend Sebastian to define the skill of the new front man: fantastic and with an unlimited potential.  If you want to know more, I can tell you that on our band’s website.  Exclusive news about him will soon be released.  Stay tuned!”

Check the official LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY website at www.LTRHAPSODY.com on February 27th, 2012 for the exclusive presentation of their new, outstanding singer!
