Catchy hooks, a sophisticated orchestration and the distinctive voice of frontman Giacomo Voli make Glory For Salvation not only a glorious, second piece of their trilogy, which started with their latest 2019- album The Eighth Mountain, but a captivating and true metal masterpiece. The energy of each band member is flowing with precision and fury, opera choirs intersecate with Voli’s superlative vocals in a cinematic orchestral polyphonic escalation towards the highest epic musical peaks.The deeply inspiring solos by guitarist Roby De Micheli and Alex Staropoli’s magic ochestrations once again create the Film Score Metal at its best!
After the previously- released, first singles – the epic album title track and the enchanting metal ballad “Magic Signs” – today RHAPSODY OF FIRE have shared another tasty appetizer taken from their upcoming Glory For Salvation. Says Alex Staropoli about the new single:
“Terial The Hawk” represent the best example of how I like to blend baroque and celtic elements with the energy of heavy metal. This song features the Uillean Pipe, the Celtic Harp, Violin, Cello and of course the magic Baroque Recorders from Manuel Staropoli. Looking forward to play it live soon!”
