From Chaos to Eternity



It looks like Rhapsody of Fire have looked upon the criticism the press have given them, and decided to cut out the bullshit fantasy journey crap and concentrate on the raging power metal. Well, I’d love to tell you they have cut it all out, but there is definitely a lot less of Sir Christopher Lee on From Chaos to Eternity and the music is far better than on previous effort The Frozen tears of Angels. With speeding guitar hooks, pounding drums and vocals from one of the most beautiful voices in metal, Rhapsody of Fire has managed to release the best album of their career.

Now that the gimmicky goblins and dwarves are out of the way, Rhapsody of Fire have concentrated so hard to produce a whirlwind of a power metal album, capable of being faster and more powerful than previous Rhapsody of Fire releases. That may sound hard to do, but trust me the guitar players fingers must be on freaking fire after playing tracks like: ‘From Chaos to Eternity’, ‘Tempesta Di Fuoco’ and ‘Aeons of Raging Darkness’. These tracks reaffirm that Rhapsody of Fire are a talented bunch of Italians and are the gods of epic power metal!

From Chaos to Eternity is full of memorable songs which to say the least are not present in previous Rhapsody of Fire releases. The songs are so catchy and within two or three listens you will be singing along to anthems like: ‘Tornado’ and ‘I Belong to the Stars’ with full force and emotion. Not only are the lyrics more fan friendly, but the music behind the songs is recognizable and if someone was to play to you the riff ‘Ghosts of Forgotten Worlds’ you would most definitely pull out your air guitar and shred, but also recognize it and sing along to it from the word go.

If you go for the special edition version of the album you are given a mouthwatering cover version of ‘Flash of the Blade’ by Iron Maiden, and why it may not be as good as the original is interesting none the less to see it played in power metal form and sped up making you think just how much Bruce Dickinson would be sweating if he was doing guest vocals for this charging song.

Rhapsody of Fire have definitely improved with From Chaos to Eternity and where they lost fans with their previous effort, have gained them back with their luring guitar hooks and piercing vocals. From Chaos to Eternity is an amazing comeback from a band that used to be away with the fairies and forgot all about the metal side to their music!
