Bumping this thread, just got the re-issues of Luca Turilli's first 2 solo albums, which I always thought were underrated.
Both are great albums, slightly less cheese and certainly less bombastic than Rhapsody and also of course a different singer, with no accent.

Funny you say that, because I think they're actually cheesier and (at times) just as bombastic as Rhapsody. Great stuff all around though. I love Olaf Hayer's voice.

There's a song called Ancient Forest of Elves.


I love his albums (minus the third one) but they are pure cheese.

Thanks for reminding me... Dragonforce ripped off Ancient Forest of Elves' verse vocal melody for its verse melody in The Last Journey Home.

From the first notes from the debut Rhapsody album back in 1997 I was in love.
I love the cheese fest and all the over the top song titles and lyrics.

The only huge criticism I have for them is their original narrator(s) before Sir Christopher Lee. The main guy was just.....painful.

I couldn't bother with the rest, but Kings of the Nordic Twilight is actually a great album for the genre, full of great and memorable songs. It goes by the book, sure, with all the mandatory kind of songs - the fast opener, the catchy tune, the mid.-tempo, the unforgettable single, the ballad and the big epic, but it works damn fine. And Olaf Hayer is indeed a kickass singer.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Yeah they struck gold when they got CL, I wonder how they got him and how much he cost?
