In 1997 the Italian metal band Rhapsody Of Fire released their debut album, Legendary Tales. Witch didn’t turned out like they wanted it to. So In the years that followed, the founding members Luca Turilli and Alex Staropoli, together with vocalist Fabio Lione, worked on their style and Incorporated classical music, baroque sounds and metal.

Now this is something that people have done before even though these guys persist they invented a new genre. Anyway in the end this is just power metal with some orchestra in the background.

Song wise, this album has a few catchy tunes. But the problem with this genre (and therefore) is sound. With these kind of elements, your songs (and record) HAVE to sound big and overwhelming. But these guys fail to do so.
