来自意大利的Power Metal乐队，更多地被定义为symphony epic metal‘交响史诗金属’，虽然不是我最喜欢的Power Metal乐队，但他们的音乐的确非常不错，兼具流畅的旋律和磅礴的气势，常常高居欧洲许多国家的金属音乐排行榜，受到无数乐迷的拥戴。推荐给所有喜欢这种风格金属乐的朋友（或许他们很有名不用我推荐也不好说）

Rhapsody have been a unique phenomenon in the metal scene since 1997. Metal fans all over the world welcomed the band's debut album, "Legendary Tales" with astounding enthusiasm. Together with Hammerfall the band advanced almost overnight to become leaders of a new generation of future-oriented metal bands.
"Legendary Tales" was followed two years later by their second opus, "Symphony Of Enchanted Lands", which climbed to 54th in the national album charts. In Finland it reached 41st, in Italy 22nd and Holland even 14th. The voices of the international press were especially loud: The German metal magazine, 'Heavy, oder was!?', the Dutch 'Aardschok' and the Belgian magazine, 'Mindview' named "Symphony Of Enchanted Lands" Album of the Month. Rhapsody was featured on the cover of numerous magazines in France, Norway, Greece, Romania and Italy. The extensive European tour with Stratovarius from early April until the end of May 2000 was the stage premiere which had been! so longed for by the many fans. It was followed by the third full-length album, "Dawn Of Victory". The album was even more successful than its predecessor and reached high chart positions in numerous countries. In Germany, "Dawn Of Victory" reached 32nd place in the album charts, in Italy, Finland, Sweden and Finland the album climbed to similarly high positions. In Japan it reached 24th and in the Dutch Indie-Charts it reached a staggering 4th.
Early Summer 2001 saw the band touring South America for the first time, leaving ecstatic fans behind them not only there but at various Europan open-air festivals, too. Now the musicians are presenting their first specially priced album, "Rain Of A Thousand Flames" in preparation for the thematic finale of the successful 'Emerald Sword saga', which will be appearing at the end of February 2002 in the form of a full-length album.
