Metal-Trails.com conducted an interview with guitarist Luca Turilli of Italian "cinematic" metallers LUCA TURILLI'S RHAPSODY on December 6 at Markthalle in Hamburg, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.
LUCA TURILLI'S RHAPSODY guitarist Dominique Leurquin recently underwent surgery after he injured his hand while working at home with a circular saw. The other members of the group decided not to replace Dominique with another guitar player on their recent tour but to simply add his parts to the backing tracks at lower volume and mixed on the right side, as if he were up on stage performing with his bandmates.
LUCA TURILLI'S RHAPSODY's "Ascending To Infinity Cinematic Tour" launched in early November with support from FREEDOM CALL, ORDEN OGAN and VEXILLUM.
In August 2011, RHAPSODY OF FIRE guitarist Luca Turilli and keyboardist Alex Staropoli announced their decision to go their separate ways.
Due to legal reasons, Staropoli is continuing under the RHAPSODY OF FIRE name. Turilli, on the other hand, is making his efforts available under the RHAPSODY moniker (RHAPSODY OF FIRE's original name), in which he is joined by guitarist Dominique Leurquin, bassist Patrice Guers, singer Alessandro Conti (TRICK OR TREAT) and drummer Alex Landenburg (AT VANCE, ANNIHILATOR, MEKONG DELTA, STRATOVARIUS).
LUCA TURILLI'S RHAPSODY's new album, "Ascending To Infinity", entered the German Media Control chart at the position No. 32.
