Update On New Album “Prometheus” Issued By Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody

Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody posted a new update on the upcoming release “Prometheus, Symphonia Ignis Divinus,” which is slated for Spring 2015.

The update reads: “After more weeks of hard work and sleepless nights we can give you a new update about the production of the new Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody album entitled: “Prometheus, Symphonia Ignis Divinus”

“After 6 months of intense work, we are at the final stage of the production. Our drummer Alex Landenburg just started recording his parts and knowing his skill and incredible talent we can guarantee a breath-taking percussive performance!

“Luca Turilli just ended the recordings of his guitar parts in France. As usual, he recorded his lead and solo parts by himself using the Eleven Rack from Avid and the Protools software installed on a Mac laptop.

“Turilli commented: ‘When I compose the songs and work on the orchestral arrangements I need to be in my home studio in Trieste (Italy), using my super orchestral template based on 3 x dual Xeon PCs, 12 x SSD and Cubase software. But for the guitar solos I like to rely on a simple laptop and my faithful Eleven Rack, which allows me to record my parts (regular audio track + contemporaneous DI signal to be re-amped later) wherever I want in the world and with total freedom.’

“Luca is now back in Italy to work on the last orchestral and cinematic arrangements.

“Since some days Dominique Leurquin started recording his lead guitar parts in Annecy (France) and should complete his task before the end of the month. You will be really amazed by the feeling and the ‘touch’ of one of the most expressive guitar players around nowadays!

“The mix of the album will start on January 3rd in Kempten (Germany) at the Backyard Studios of Sebastian Roeder, the faithful Rhapsody’s top level engineer who is taking care of the sound of the band in the studio and on stage too.”

Much more news on the album is expected soon.
