Well, they said that they're going to return back to the style of "Emerald Sword" &co while maintaining the modern neoclassical elements of the "Dark Secret Saga". I don't really know what to expect...

Disappointment.


Don't be so pessimistic and keep an open mind. I can really see this album going either way. To me Luca will always be the more superior song writer and I was very pleased with Ascending to Infinity, so even If Strapoli can't rise to the occasion we still have an alternative (IMO, greater) Rhapsody to listen to. I myself am very excited to see the musical direction this album takes. The worse that I'm excepting from this is lack of originality, but I'm sure It will provide a lot fun time blasting in my car driving down the highway.

Bottom line, expectation: Standard (Which for me is better than most power/symphonic metal bands best).

Last album was pretty awesome, I don't see why not to expect the best from these guys, even without Luca...

It's impossible to expect dissapointment. You can be dissapointed only if your expectations were high. If you "expect dissapointment", it means you expect it to be weak, so if it really will be weak, your expectations will be matched - no dissapointment

The last album was pretty good, but a bit below par. My favorite album is probably still SoEL 2. I like their more symphonic works.

As long as they don't get that neckbeard of a narrator on their first few albums, there's no way this can be a bad album.

Wow I didn't even know they had new material written... With all the stuff that's been going on I don't know what too expect from the album. Does anyone know what the writing duties have been like over the years? Ive only been able to see that Luca and Strapoli were the main instrument writers so it seems that they have a big gap to fill with the loss of Luca but Im still hopeful.

I hope they get someone better than Tom Hess to play guitar. He didn't look too comfortable playing some of their songs live.

Maybe they will harden more their sound (more dark voices made by Fabio) according with the direction taken in their 3 last albums (TFTOA, TCEOF & FCTE).

They have in their hands the future of the band, if is good or bad, it depends of them, if they decide to be hung to the past (Luca-dependence) or to untie of that.

"The most powerful guitars ever performed" - hmmm, sounds interesting.
I would like to hear guitar stuff at minimum similiar to guitars on new Empyrios album, otherwise I will be dissapointed.

Finally! A Rhapsody album without Luca will be interesting to hear anyway

I don't know why, but I prefer the narrator from the first albums

More well-performed power metal-no matter how genric in approach- is always appreciated.

Power metal guitar, Fabio's vocals seem fine for the style. Should be a good sound, this. (and Christopher Lee was a cool choice to narrate, IMHO).
