Turilli, Luca - King of the Nordic Twilight Review

back to reviews

Artist: Turilli, Luca

Album: King of the Nordic Twilight

Released: 1999

A mixture of styles and genres: Melodic Speed Power Metal


Luca Turilli is presently guitar player for Rhapsody.

I don't know why this album was released under name of Luca Turilli because it has the same sound as Rhapsody does. The only difference is the singer. He is surely weaker than Fabio Lione. I guess all guys from Rhapsody were on their vacations at the moment of recording of this album, and only Luca was hanging around with his ideas and Miro and Sascha Paeth who produced this album (as well as previous Rhapsody albums). The guys decided to record new album even without standart Rhapsody lineup. They've invited new singer (Olaf Hayer) and new musician (Robert Hunecke-Rizzo - drums), Sascha played bass, acousric and additional guitars, and Miro - keyboards... And as a result - new Rhaposdy album dated by 1999 but under the name of Luca Turilli.

I'm sorry but I can't find another explanation to the birth of this project. Though music is very good, it is symphonic power metal, keyboards oriented, impregnated with magic and fairy tales atmospeheres (knights, dragons, elves, magicians etc.). Violins, flutes and clavecin simulated on keyboards sound very good. But as I said above, the singer is weaker than Fabio Lione and that makes the album sound a bit different from previous Rhapsody works. As a bonus, the CD contains multimedia bonus track - video clip for "Ancient Forest Of Elves" song. Must-buy album for all die-hard Rhapsody fans and those who are not familiar with this band.
