Staff review by
Just to clear things up before we start, this is Rhapsody Of Fire, the one that still has Alex Staropoli. Not any of the other six. Recently, some of those offshoots have shone more brightly than the progenitor star, but Staropoli's latest lineup is clawing its way back up the ramparts to the glory that once was.

I am so disappointed with this album. Same dull as "From Chaos To Eternity" from a decade ago. No melodies, music just playing through but brings no emotions whatsoever.
And nothing like last album, which was great melodically and nearly each song was a killer.
Are they trying to get by this into prog/power field? If yes, this attempt failed. There nothing alike Laybirnth or Secret Sphere. Therefore 4/10. Meh.....

It's not that it's bad, but they've put out a lot of better efforts, this is pretty forgettable inside RoF's discography.

This just doesn't sound like Rhapsody anymore and it hasn't since all the good members left. Just a continuation of the last bland album. You can tell it's all written by a keyboardist because everything else is shoved into the background. "I'll Be Your Hero" sums up this iteration of Rhapsody for me - generic and bland, sounding like a billion other bands of the genre. Rhapsody used to really stand out for me in their approach and sound. I also still don't like this vocalist. I know it's hard to follow Fabio but the guy sounds like he's just about to burst into tears constantly.

A few catchy songs nonetheless: Maid Of The Secret Sand, Infinitae Gloriae, Chains Of Destiny. Still it's uninspiring and forgettable as a whole...

I don't like this new vocalist anyway, I don't think even best writing and musicianship in this world can save this band if Fabio is missing.
2016 was last good album and I guess it will stay like this.

Infinitely better than the last effort... I'm actually really surprised by this one. Biggest surprise of 2021?
I lift weights and listen to metal

As much as I like Staropoli, I have to be real. This is no longer Rhapsody. This is just an average power metal band now.

I don't know. Good album, but earlier stuff is undeniably better. I enjoy this, which shows Turilli isn't the necessary member of the band, especially since his split work has been so-so. A bit more generic than others, but good still overall.
