Original RHAPSODY members Luca Turilli and Fabio Lione have rejoined forces to write and record a new album under the banner TURILLI/LIONE RHAPSODY. It will be the first time that they will record new music together in over eight years. The band is completed by former RHAPSODY members Dominique Leurquin, Patrice Guers and Alex Holzwarth.

In 2017, Luca and Fabio embarked on RHAPSODY's 20th-anniversary farewell tour which saw them reunite and return to stage to perform classic RHAPSODY songs. After closing their RHAPSODY chapter and LUCA TURILLI'S RHAPSODY disbanding, the two friends kept in search of creative, original and innovative ways to express their artistic visions. Luca and Fabio started visualizing their new collaboration, in the process creating a whole new generation of symphonic metal, enriched with modern elements of the musical productions they love so much. The excitement for their project grew with each passing day, so the men agreed to realize their vision under a new and clear band name

TURILLI/LIONE RHAPSODY is set to enter the studio this winter to record its debut album. To help finance the LP, they have launched a crowdfunding campaign, where you can pre-order the upcoming album and other perks.

Turilli comments: "After concluding the farewell tour and disbanding LUCA TURILLI'S RHAPSODY, I never imagined continuing my activities within the metal genre. But now, thanks to a new artistic vision and our greatly inspiring mantra 'rebirth and evolution,' I feel very excited for the unlimited artistic possibilities we could have while evolving our sound to new frontiers. We want to promote our fundamental spiritual message of light with the most emotional impact!"

Lione adds: "We believe a lot in the new TURILLI/LIONE RHAPSODY band, the vision and in the possibility of making new music together presenting something really innovative, modern and fresh, also enriched by the no-compromise sound of the most modern productions. We also believe in the precious contribution of our fans to help us achieving this important goal and re-start an important new chapter of our music career facing a new album production. We count on you for all this to happen!"

TURILLI/LIONE RHAPSODY will release its debut album next summer.
