To me it sounds like a "SOEL II" b-side... hope this will grow on me with more listens.
We could be so much more than we are. Stop.

....whelp this is what everyone feared most..

It's not terrible but it sounds like a RoF copy band rather than RoF. The catchiness is there, the orchestration is there, the awesomely chessy vox/lyrics are there but the technical complexity and variations that set RoF apart in the first place seemed to have left with Luca.. hopefully this is just one of the more simplistic songs from the album..
pewpew.. gotcha

I tend to agree with AngelofDeth regarding the riffs on this song.
However I think the rest of the album will be better. I mean, these guys aren't stupid!

Either way, I am always happy to hear Fabio sing. His voice saves this song. Him and Alex (keyboard) have a huge charismatic presence.
I don't think Luca can get someone who can compete with them. The bottom line is both sides lost a lot from the band's break-up..but I still hope this album will kick ass !!
wimps and posers leave the hall lol

Not a huge RoF fan, but always remember guys.
The preview song(s) are never the best on the album. So don't get too worried if the song they release early is a bit mediocre.

I genuinely hope this album is better than this song. Waaay too simplistic for my tastes (considering we're listening to Rhapsody of Fire).

I like it well enough. I also agree with Grey Wind that any excuse to listen to Fabio sing is a good one. We also have to remember that we are listening to this song out of the context of the album. It may compliment the songs before and after it.

Looks like Staropoli's running the show now. The guitar isn't nearly as present as it used to be. It honestly sounds like something that shoulda been on the Hollow Haze album.

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

So, where are these "heaviest guitar parts ever"

Don't dislike it but it is more of the same. Do like the chorus, sounds a bit close to Symphony style.
Just because you believe in your strong morals it doesn't mean they are correct

For me this sounds like Legendary Tales and not follow up to From Chaos To Eternity. I really hope that the production will be much better when the album is out.
"To those who understand, I extend my hand
To the doubtful I demand, take me as I am
Not under your command, I know where I stand
I won't change to fit your plan, Take me as I am"

Seems like it is just me, but I enjoy having two different flavors of rhapsody.

I can't said i love it, is not bad but lets hope will be better tracks on album.
06.11.2013 - 16:13
Well, I don't expect anything special from this album... they've already done their best.

Imma gonna wait for entire album. This song is not bad, but its lacking that Luca touch.
His is a name the world will never forget... He is Dargor!
