J'ADORE !!!! Les parties symphoniques sont magnifique et la partie Métal est tout aussi bonne. Les choeurs, eux, laissent deviner les suites grandioses à venir. Certains passages sont tellement bons, que j'ai l'impression de voir les cavaliers au galop sur la pelouse de mon jardin. Ouf !!!!

Cet avis concerne :- Symphony of Enchanted Lands Part II : The Dark Secret
-Legendary Tales
-Symphony of Enchanted Lands
-Power of the Dragonflame
-King of the Nordic Twilight
-Rain of a thousand flames

De toutes les oeuvres de Luca Turilli et/ou Rhapsody, ces CDs sont à mon sens les meilleurs. Ils dégagent un style que je n'ai pas eu l'occasion d'entendre de la part d'autres groupes de métal. Il y a ce côté médiéval-fantasy, quelques inspirations du classique, et bien sûr l'idée de raconter une histoire tout au long de l'album. Toute cette combinaison donne un mélange unique qui fait voyager dans leur univers, inspire, voire même redynamise!
Je n'ai pas ressenti cette originalité (bien faite) dans leurs autres CDs, qui me semblent d'un style plus courant.
à chacun son avis après ça ;)

HASH(0x912dd72c) étoiles sur 5 Bigger and bigger and bigger and.... 22 avril 2002
Par Lord Chimp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This stuff just keeps getting more huge. Can this band sound any more epic?? Rhapsody has followed a steady progression of making their music increasingly epic with every release, and Power of the Dragonflame just blows everything else away.
Rhapsody is the cheesiest band in the world, but I don't care. They write great songs. We often hear people say that band X or Y is "symphonic" or "classically influenced." Those descriptions apply to Rhapsody more than anyone else. While the music waxes a bit soundtrack sounding, the classical elements are more prevalent than anywhere else in metal. The stratum of orchestral music on top of the ripping power metal is put to use like no one in the business. Rhapsody dishes out speedy power metal, bombastic symphonic keyboards, massive orchestral movements, stratospheric vocals, and epic choirs integrated into one over-the-top musical package.
Rhapsodys heavy use of the "epic choir" dwarfs even Blind Guardian's latest (A Night at the Opera), and that's saying a lot. There's no comparison to army-like choir sound used to create this huge record. The choir-enhanced choruses of songs like the title track and "Steelgods of the Last Apocalypse" (how's that for an ostentatious title?) are so huge they eclipse even the mammoth vocals of "And Then There Was Silence" (the 14-minute epic of A Night at the Opera). I truly hate to compare these bands, and in _no way whatsoever_ to I wish to slight Blind Guardian -- they're a truly talented bunch. I merely wish to lend perspective to the enormous vocal sound here. (Truthfully, Blind Guardian and Rhapsody are not similar bands.)
Honestly, the band's guitarist and principal composer Luca Turilli is one of the best songwriters I've heard. The way he puts all these ingredients together into his cauldron of symphonic metal magic, and adds reams of melodic hooks is so impressive. The album isn't as catchy as the mighty Symphony of Enchanted Lands, but it more effectively bridges that melodic element with the harder-hitting music of Dawn of Victory. And those choirs! Wow.
Rhapsody has been telling a story all this time. The Saga of the Emerald Sword (or whatever) began with the debut, Legendary Tales, and comes to an end here. I wasn't sure it would ever be finished all the songs seemed to be about the same thing. Honestly, the story isn't that important to me, and insofar as fantasy stories go, this is beyond cheesy. Still, when you put it together with the music, the poorly written lyrics produce heroic images that can lift the spirits. It's inspiring, I guess. (And just so there's no confusion...no, I am not a pimply 14-year old who plays Dungeons & Dragons every Saturday.) BRING ME A SWORD, FOOLISH MORTAL.
Rhapsody isn't a band to radically change their sound, but Power of the Dragonflame does demonstrate some new twists in the band's songs. Sure, it does begin with the requisite orchestral/choral intro, "In Tenebris", which kicks into a slashing metal cut "Knightrider of Doom". Yet, there are surprises throughout. "Lamento Eroico" is a great ballad powerfully sung in Italian, with vocalist Fabio Lione toning down his abuse of vibrato-heavy power metal singing...his performance is very "operatic." The music to this piece is full of minor key stuff (a bit gothic, even), and the choir during the chorus is very hefty. With just this song, I've gained a lot more respect for Lione's singing ability. "When Demons Awake" is probably the band's most aggressive song, where Lione tries some "black metal lite" vocals. It's a fairly harrowing track with female baroque vocals countering the ominous strings. On "The Steelgods of the Last Apocalypse", awesome melodic dynamics, elating string inflections, and a powerful chorus make for a positively intense listen.
Some of the songs aren't so different, and just work with the standard formula very well. "The Pride of the Tyrant" has a transition to its heroic, choir-enhanced chorus that never fails to give me goose bumps. "Knightrider of Doom" and the title track work with the band's established formula very effectively, though they benefit from a more powerful choral presence. "The March of the Swordmaster" whips up some Irish folk melodies, which the band had done before on Dawn of Victory. Here, though, they add a more up-front metal guitar factor.
The album's finest moment is the grand finale, amusingly titled "Gargoyles, Angels of Darkness". Clocking in at about 20 minutes, this is a perfectly fitting conclusion to the epic story. It was the best way to go out, because nearly all the band's best songs (in my opinion) have been in this long epic format. It begins with a gorgeous classical guitar piece, then burns into a fast metal groove in a deranged time-signature. It's a playground for all the archetypal "Hollywood metal" elements, with aggressive operatic choirs, soundtrack-like orchestral movements, and even the band's cheesy narrator. "Let the mystic power of the dragonflame burn in your heart!" This music is embarrassing, and yet...there is no shame!
I don't know what the band will do now that their Emerald Sword story is finished. As cheesy as Rhapsody is, I hope they continue to make music. This stuff is too good to be without.

HASH(0x912dd780) étoiles sur 5 Absolutely Fantastic! 4 décembre 2003
Par S. Morales - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I have to admit, after 2 listens to the entire album straight through, I must say that this is the best album I've purchased since Opeth's "Blackwater Park." This was the first Rhapsody album I picked up and I was a bit hesitant at first only because people talk about how the music is repetitive and too over the top and whatnot. Needless to say, I dont' believe this.
Rhapsody's music is catagorized as "Epic Hollywood Metal." To anyone who has yet to own this record, DON'T take that catagorization seriously. Associating the word "Hollywood" with this seems to me a huge slap in the face of a great piece of Art. Yes, it is Epic Metal, it does utilize almost every instrument you can think of, from guitars to keyboards to flutes to violins to even choirs in a lot of the songs. If listening to this doesn't transport you back to medieval times, you don't have ears!
Most of the songs on this record are very epic and loud, but the blend of guitars and orchestrations are so perfect in many parts you'll feel that this is the ONLY Rhapsody CD you'll ever need (hard to believe they have 4 other albums besides this!). It's just all together so much fun to listen to, the melodies and driving rhythms are all simply breathtaking. Chorus's, like many power metal bands, are the shining moments on this album, many using grand choirs as I said before and are so uplifting and empowering you won't know what hit you. There is one slow track in the mix that really isn't metal at all, more like a very dramatic opera song, if you can get past the drama and non-metal sound, you'll start to love it. On another note, the lead singer's got an incredible voice and is definitely up there with Russell Allen of Symphony X (my favorite power metal vocalist) The final track is a 19 minute epic, I see it as more 16 minutes because the song really ends after that much; another great song w/ great chorus work.
Now, as much as I love this CD, it's not PERFECT. No album really is, but giving it any less than 5 stars just feels wrong to me. Anyway, there are FEW moments in the album where the keyboard work is just so cheesy it almost sounds like something out of an old Atari video game. These usually don't last more than 3 seconds though. One other small hindrence was the last song, where towards the end, some voiceovers are used to try to create some kind of story I guess, but the voice used is just so flat and undramatic it just sounds like the guy's reading off a piece of paper (anyone who owns Blind Guardian's "Nightfall In Middle Earth" knows what kind of voice acting I mean). These are such small imperfections that they almost feel worthless mentioning, so don't let them deter you from buying this.
This isn't one of those albums that a bunch of people say is amazing but when you go to hear it you find it boring, I find too many albums with overrated reviews like that. This album truly is amazing, and one should know because I don't give 5 starts to just anything that's "pretty good." What MIGHT turn people off to this is its epicness. This is more for fans of power fantasy inspired metal and less for fans of Pantera/Slayer/Metallica etc. I'm addicted to this CD, the first couple of days I had it I probably played it 10 times over, I just still can't get enough of it; definitely one of the best CD's in my collection. Just a reminder, if this doesn't grab you the first time, don't give up on it. Spending 18 bucks on a CD and then listening to it once and discarding it seems to me pretty silly, right? Do yourself a HUUUUGE favor and buy this album now!

HASH(0x912ddbb8) étoiles sur 5 The Ultimate Rhapsody album 12 avril 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
My first impression of this album was a bit off. I didn't have Rain of a Thousand Flames in hand yet and the difference between this album and Dawn of Victory is HUGE ! Another reviewer here complained that the format is the same, well yeah, I can't argue that. ALL Rhapsody albums start with an instrumental intro and then rage into a powerful, in-your-face charge. That being a given, this album is far heavier than Dawn of Victory. If you did pick up the Rain of a Thousand Flames EP, it won't seem that heavy as Rain really bridges the two albums quite nicely. In my opinion Power of the Dragonflame combines the best of Dawn of Victory and Rain of a Thousand Flames and mixes them flawlessly. Dragonflame doesn't seem quite as rough as Rain was, the songs are much more fluid and focused. The songs also range from extremely heavy to soft ballads, a pace determined by, as well as complimentary to the story of the final chapter of The Emerald Sword Saga.
If you are new to Rhapsody, and are considering this as your first album, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, however be aware this is by far their heaviest album. The final battles of the free world against all the forces of evil take place in the story on this album, meaning there are a lot of very intense songs. Compared to Symphony of Enchanted Lands, much of that albums harmonious melodies have been dropped for agression and power. This fits the story. I just want potential newcomers to be aware that this band has various albums ranging every area of metal.
The intro "In Tenebris" is what you would expect from a Rhapsody intro, powerful and majestic.
"Knightrider of Doom" is a very fast and powerful song and one of my favorites on this album. This is one of the two really heavy songs that caught me off guard when I first heard this album.
"Power of the Dragonflame" is the other one. It starts like a death metal song, but once you hear the chorus, you realize you are listening to the most majestic Rhapsody song ever written. A very fitting tribute to the might of the Dragon.
"The March of the Swordmaster" is a classic Rhapsody song. Dungeons & Dragons in metal. I love the chorus of this song.
"When Demons Awake" is a slower, but very heavy song. In many ways this is a song that could have been on the first album if it wasn't so heavy, it has that kind of atmosphere to it.
"Agony is my Name" Ah yes, a no nonsense song that has all the makings of a great live tune. Strong and aggresive it has a great chorus with plenty of power to it.
"Lamento Eroico" In a surprising turn, Rhapsody recorded this song all in Italian. The music is beautiful and haunting and I definately love the song.....I just wish I knew what they were saying.
"Steelgods of the Last Apocalypse" While this song is a great song, if I had to pick a weak link on this album, this would be it. There's just not much to the song. It seems to lack purpose.
The chorus is catchy but overall the song just doesn't live up to the rest of the album.
"The Pride of the Tyrant" Majestic and uplifting, this song portrays the spirit of those making their last stand in a hopeless battle perfectly. I get chills listening to the chorus.
"Gargoyles, Angels of Darkness" I won't even try to describe this masterpiece. It is the crowning achievement of Rhapsody's legacy of great songs (so far). My absolute favorite song.
One last note, if you can spare the extra cash, get the 2-disc/DVD combo version of this album, it has a bonus song called "Rise from the Sea of Flames" that is one of the five best songs on the album. If you're a fan, you'll kick yourself if you miss out on having that song.
Every album is better than the last, and Power of the Dragonflame is no exception. I cannot recommend this album enough !!

This album is definitely something else. At first, I couldn't bring myself to listen to it because I looked at the CD booklet and saw the story and map to the "Emrald Sword saga". After perusing the lyrics, I thought for sure that I had just blown 12 bucks on a peice of crap. Then, I played the album and was blown away by the power. True, the lyrics are terrible in some songs, but I find myself singing along because of the music's power. I often stop myself on the street, realizing that I just sang something to myself about Algalord's holy revenge. Even though the lyrics to 'When Demons Awake' are the worst lyrics I have ever heard/read in my life and the vocals are growls, the music is very good. Luca Turilli is an extremely talented guitarist and songwriter.
Recommendations- Symphony X's V:The New Mythology, The Odyssey, Twilight on Olympus and The Divine Wings of Tragedy
Manowar's Kings of Metal, Warriors of the World United and The Triumph of Steel

HASH(0x912e0084) étoiles sur 5 Another great album from Rhapsody 24 juin 2002
Par Ironblayde - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Rhapsody's latest album is sure to make their fans happy. Yeah, the lyrics are cheesy, but the music is so good you'll want to sing along anyway. There aren't really any tracks that jump out and grab me right away, but that means there aren't any weak points or "filler" songs either. Everything on this album is done very well, except of course for that blasted narrator we've all come to know and hate. The good news is that he only shows up in one song. The bad news is that it's in the 20-minute finale. When, oh when will they get rid of him? Maybe if and when they do, I'll consider giving Rhapsody five stars. :)
